It was a great experience . It is worth going to the Salt Mine to admire the salt works of art and the work of the people. The age and mess hall of Saint Kinga was very impressive. A big attraction at the end is going up to the exit with the old elevator. The company was very well organized. The exchange of information between the customers and the company was carried out smoothly and in a well-organized manner. The driver explained the process well and reliably accompanied his customers throughout the day. Always my pleasure .

The 'skip the line' only means that you don't have to queue up for a ticket at the location, it doesn't mean you just walk straight in. You are given a set time, usually 20 - 30 mins after you arrive, which is fine if the weather is good. The tour itself is very informative and well planned. I recommend you take some water or other drink as the tour is quite long.
