The Wieliczka Salt Mine  is one of the most visited places in Poland. This place has already been placed on the 1st UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978,  which confirms the uniqueness of this place. During this tour, you’ll discover a beautiful underground world hollowed out in salt rocks that had its origins in the Middle Ages. We are glad to take you there!

 

How does tour look like?
On the agreed day and time, your local guide from Krakow will pick you up from your hotel and take you by private comfortable car to Wieliczka where salt mine is located. After a 0.5 hour ride, you’ll be on the spot where you will start visiting the Mine in a group with a guide that will be provided by the museum in the mine. After about 2 hours of sightseeing, your local guide from Krakow will be waiting for you and take you back to Krakow.

Remember:

  • The overall tour takes place underground. Firstly you will go down 360 steps. In total there will be 800 of them. No above average condition is required. After the turn you will return to the surface by elevator
  • The route is 3.5 hours long distance
  • The temperature in the mine is plus 17-18 degrees Celsius
  • Don’t plan to take a backpack larger than 35cm x 20cm x 20cm with you ( you can leave it safely in a car )

I'm not sure I can capture how wonderful Tomasz was!! We spent almost 2.5 days with him, and by the end, he definitely felt like family and we cannot wait to return. While we knew we were going to visit both the Salt Mines and Auschwitz, he was so incredibly accommodating with all of our requests, and did so much more for us.. The experiences were incredible, the tours/entrance/tickets were seamless. Everything was done with such ease, without imposition, and his advice for restaurants/shopping/etc were all superb. If interested, be sure to ask about ancestry connections (if you had family in Poland), a local winery, and hands down - his wife's restaurant! The latter was probably the best place we ate (twice) during our entire visit. We cannot thank him enough for all he did! Would HIGHLY recommend to all subsequent guests. Extremely comfortable car, fantastic English, great insights and information, incredibly accommodating. One of the best tour companies we've experienced. Thank you, Tomasz!

I started planning a 4 week solo trip to Poland in August , 2018 for May, 2019. I contacted Polandia Travel to help me with some logistics and details. I was fortunate enough to work with Thomas Stepniak, who was invaluable in helping me with suggestions. He always replied in a timely fashion, and went out of his way to help me make some arrangements I was having problems with. I spent a few days each in Warsaw, Torun, Gdansk, Poznan, Wroclaw and Krakow, and then was lucky enough to have Thomas as my guide and driver to visit Zakopane, Zalipie (the village of painted houses), Lancut and Kazimierz Dolny. Thomasz is incredibly knowledgeable about Polish history, and I enjoyed the discussions we had during our drives. Thomasz would suggest interesting things to visit in an area, outside the normal tourist places. One great memory is going to a place in the Tatra Mountains that made sheep cheese, and smoking our own cheese. Gdansk was my favorite city, and the WW2 Museum, the Solidarity Museum, and the Emigration Museum in nearby Gdynia were so impressive in detailing the history of Poland. There was also a wonderful collection of murals in the nearby area of Zaspa. Thomasz also has a wonderful restaurant in Krakow, Pierwszy Stopien. I give Polandia Travel a 10+,and couldn't have asked for better service. I highly recommend them, and Thomas.

Tomasz Stepniak organised and took me to Auschwitz and Birkenau. Travelled in an extremely comfortable car. Tomasz was polite, friendly and considerate in every way. He is also very knowledgeable and I learnt a good deal about Poland during our journey. I would highly recommend him and will certainly use his services again.

Polandia service and tour exceeded expectations. They were willing to take us to places that not all tourists go and went at our pace, not on a strict schedule - which is what we had hoped for. Zakopane and surrounding area were so beautiful. Door to door service. Highly recommend this tour service in Krakow

Thank you Polandia travel for orginising my trip to Poland. I was with my family in Krakow for a week. It was great. We had a pickup from the airport. First day we have visited Auschwitz and Salt mine we had english speaking drivers and comfortable car. Once visiting Poland, Auschwitz and salt mine is a must. Excellently organised tour of Auschwitz. We went from Krakow. The guide at the extermination camp, Michael was thorough, professional and extremely informative. The experience was emotional and educational. Second day we had guided tour around Krakow and ghetto part. Our guide was very informative and clear in his tour and gave opportunity to ask further questions. He was friendly and enthusiastic and shared useful general tips.we viewed Synagogues in the Jewish Quarter and learnt about the ghetto. Next was a 2 days trip to Zakopane with our guide Peter, who was warm, charming, had a wonderful sense of humour and was deeply knowledgeable. He was also willing to answer all our many questions on Poland in general. The trip to Zakopane was wonderful. The town is very beautiful nonetheless. We The organisation of the tour was simple and smooth, they are very flexible.
