    What to Expect
    Your tour begins with pickup from your central Krakow hotel in time for a 10am or 4pm departure (depending on option chosen). Traveling by air-conditioned Mercedes Benz vehicle, set out on the around 30-minute journey to the Wieliczka Salt Mine.

    On arrival, your guide will be waiting to whisk you on a walking tour of the magnificent mines. Venture underground, where the vast complex of caverns, tunnels, and chambers are all completely carved from salt — a dazzling sight. Along the way, visit the Kinga’s Chapel, where even the chandeliers are carved from salt crystals; pause to admire dramatic salt sculptures; and pose for photos by the underground lake.

    After around 2.5 hours exploring the mines, head back to Krakow, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 2.30pm or 8.30pm (depending on departure time).
