      The tour with the booked guide did not take place because he did not show up for the appointment. After a frantic search for the guilty party, the lady from the Internet cash desk helped me enter the mines. I have to thank this lady. Which issued the tickets based on the e-mail and proof of payment for the trip. I believe that I should get a refund for the booking I paid for in the amount of PLN 50. and I guess I should find out.
