Full description

Tour Leader will assist you with entrance to the museum. Sightseeing takes place 135 m below the surface. Get ready to walk down 800 stairs to get to the starting point.

The tour takes up to 3 hours. Channel your inner miner, exploring the depths of underground chambers, churches, and altars made of salt. After a 2.5 km walk with a licensed guide provided by the museum, you'll return to the surface with an original elevator used by the miners. The Wieliczka Salt Mine reaches a depth of 327 meters and extends via horizontal passages and chambers for over 287 kilometers (178 miles).

The rock salt is naturally of varying shades of grey, resembling unpolished granite rather than the white crystalline substance that might be expected.

Brilliant idea that the skip the line… We would have stood in line for hours in the rain otherwise. The attraction itself is interesting. It's pretty. I was still expecting a lot more pieces… The guide was very interesting and made the comments interesting and fun especially. On the other hand, the group was really really too large. We were too many and unfortunately we could not hear all the explanations of the guide. To finish the return to the elevators is very very long. And finally we go out but we do not know where we are at the exit ... we need a plan at the exit

After a few negative reviews, I was a bit skeptical whether everything would work out. We should be at the meeting point at 1:45 p.m., we had booked for 2 p.m. When no one was there at 2 p.m., I warmed up briefly. But shortly afterwards the responsible employee came with the tickets. And we were forwarded to the underground tour. Everything went smoothly. We had a great tour thanks to GetYourGuide. Getting tickets at such short notice in the high season was really not easy ....

Buonasera; l'organizzazione delle visite, si è adoperata per permetterci di effettuare la visita in modo fantastico! Ci hanno comunicato per WatsApp che la visita fissata con la guida in Italiano non era più possibile nella data e nell'orario prenotato. Ci hanno dato comunque la possibilità di effettuarla nello stesso giorno e alla stessa ora con la guida in Inglese. Abbiamo accettato. Poco dopo, ci hanno mandato un secondo WatsApp per comunicarci che era tornata possibile la visita nello stesso giorno e alla stessa ora con la guida in Italiano !!!!!! Abbiamo ovviamente accettato! Non avevavmo capito che per accedere alla visita dovevamo prendere i biglietti, presentando la nostra prenotazione online. Ci hanno contattato telefonicamente ed un addetto dell'organizzazione, ci ha raggiunto nel giardino antistante l'ingresso, consegnandoci i biglietti d'ingresso!!!! Ci siamo sentiti accolti e presi per mano! Grazie!
