Excellent place to see

It’s a 3km walk underground. But it goes quickly as there is so much to see. Really worth a visit. Better than I thought. But I would add, depending on your guide’s competence in his/her language they can be hard to understand.

Great Salt Mine trip

Really good trip. The salt mines are a must see trip. The chambers and carvings were incredible. The English speaking guide was excellent. Pick up location was easyjust outside Hotel Maltanski near Filimarnia tram stop, leaving punctually at 10:30 for a approx 30 minute drive. The driver doesn't speak English very well but was not critical to enjoyment of the trip.

Poor transport

The mine and tour guide were very good I would highly recommend but still haven’t received an explanation as to why our transport was an hour and ten minutes late for the return journey leaving us stood in a car park..to be fair the car park attendant was very friendly and offered to call all 20 of us a taxi…poor show by the transport company no apology just a grunt..

Not a good service

The driver doesn't speak English very well. We were picked up at 1030. After a drive of half an hour we must wait 1,5 hour to get into the saltmine. The tourguide was good and the saltmine was wonderful to see

Overpriced bus trip
Julie_H
, Oct 2021
Chaos at the pick up location. No one from Viator was there to help, approximately 75 other people assembled in the same area for different tours. Our driver arrived 20 minutes past the start time, 35 minutes past the meeting time. He was overwhelmed and didn’t speak English well…for the English tour. In this case the Viator cost paid for transportation to the salt mine and tour. Nothing else, no personal guide or additional background. Absolutely not worth it. Take the city bus and save some money and inconvenience.
