We were collected bang on time from our hotel in a modern mini bus and then did the rounds to collect others on the tour. The salt mine visit was interesting and our tour guide spoke excellent English. No complaints at all. It was not difficult to negotiate the initial 400

Response from Ptasz, Kierownik at Wieliczka Salt Mine and Oskar Schindler Factory Guided Half Day Tour From Krakow
Responded 20 Feb 2020
Dear Sir/Madam Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that the tour did not meet your expectations. We realize that you felt cramped in the lift at the Salt Mine however its size does not depend on us. Due to the regulations at the Salt Mine, it is spacious enough to accommodate even up to 8 people. Schindler's Factory is a proper name for a branch of a Historical Museum of Krakow since the exhibition is placed in the former administrative building of Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory. As stated on official website of Historical Museum of Krakow, the exhibition is primarily a story about Krakow and its inhabitants, both Polish and Jewish, during World War Two. It is also a story about Nazi Germans – the occupiers who arrived here on 6 September 1939, brutally disrupting Kraków’s centuries-long history of Polish-Jewish relation. I hope that the above is useful for you.

Fab tour company. Would highly recommend these guys! We did the salt mines and Schindler’s factory one day and Auschwitz on a separate day. Both with this tour company. They pick you up from your hotel both times they were bang on time. Mini Bus is clean,modern & comfortable.
