Absolutely loved this tour. The guide was amazing. Super funny and knowledgeable about the exhibits. The mine itself is spectacular, but this was enhanced by our guide. Would come again!

The whole experience was wonderful. Pick-up was excellent and the tour itself was incredible. The work involved to create such a site is beyond ones imagination.
Unique, awe inspiring mines.

Amazing world heritage site. Takes you down 130m - see the vast chambers dug out by the miners over hundreds of years. There’ a full size church in one, with carvings and statues. I got a minibus transfer from my hotel with Kaspar of Mr Shuttle. Very friendly and convenient. Guided tours available in many languages- slight grumble, not quite enough time to look at things at your own pace, as the guide always wants to move on.
Excellent experience

Great visit to the salt mines.

A wonderful, beautiful and immersive experience.

Guide was well informed and the tour was well thought out.

Unfortunately the guide in the group behind us got too close and we couldn’t hear. Noisy group of Slovakian senior school children wouldn’t take a telling.

Definitely worth a guided visit!
