This was a well organised and excellent trip where the driver texted beforehand and kept us informed. We were lucky to be the last to be collected and we arrived at the Salt Mines with a half hour wait which wasn't too bad. The tour was well presented and at a good pace to accommodate everyone but it is quite a lot of walking if you are infirm. Very interesting guide with lots of knowlege.

From the point of booking, the team were in regular contact to arrange hotel pick up with communications very helpful via WhatsApp. Daniel was a fantastic host, on time and so accommodating. Daniel even offered to drop back at either my hotel or in the main square. The tour itself was hosted by the fantastically dynamic Szymon! A great insight into the mines and how they even host events today 135m down!

Nice tour to do when you are in Poland. We just expected it to take a little longer. After 1.5 hours there was a short break and shortly after that the tour was over. We didn't think it was overly cold. Long pants and a t-shirt was more than enough for us! The reservation went smoothly. The evening before we were informed about the pick-up time and the next day our driver was ready. He was very friendly and took us neatly to our destination.
