Very interesting long winding walk deep into the caves, well worth a visit, very well planned to enable visitors to get the maximum experience from the tour, which is aided and led by well informed vociferous guides, our guide was a young man and knew his stuff off by heart obviously from the number of times he has repeated it,...

Loved our trip to the cave, I was a bit worried about what it would be like underground and on the metal walk ways and about the steps but it was great, the guide had a great knowledge about the cave and walked at an easy speed for everyone to keep up. We went in walking boots and found the... More

I absolutely loved the tour of the caves, I was in awe of the beauty of the caves and was really interested in what the guide was telling us whilst being led around. We arrived a little bit late and waited in the café for the next tour, which was reasonably priced. The gift shop was great, and when leaving... More

I was really impressed with the tour through the caves, lovely sight but I was most disappointed with the manager John, I think he was called. Manager or boss, not sure which? I found him very boring! He has obviously been doing this job too long because he was very uninterested which came across as arrogant and miserable!! I would... More

We decided to visit the caves as it was raining and what a good decision it turned out to be! You go in the caves in groups escorted by a guide. The guide was very informative and had a lot of history and knowledge. The caves are stunning and beautiful, in places quite low -I am small and had to... More

We visited Wed 3rd Sept and we were on the first tour at 10.20am. There were 8 adults and 2 children on our tour. Hard hats were dished out and a young guide took us down the cave. Found it very interesting lots to see and some good photo opportunities. The guide was very good and spoke up well to... More

I visited the caves with my partner, sister, her partner and my 2 children aged 10 and 7. What fun we had walking around the cave...you have to wear safety helmets and it's a good job too as we banged our heads numerous times. You can only go into the cave as part of a tour which is brilliant. The... More

Plenty of interesting things to see in the caves. Our tour guide was excellent, very informative with an added light humour to it. I have never been down a cave before so I cannot say whether this was better or worse than others. There are some very interesting geological features. The tour took betweeen 80 and 90 minutes. There are... More
