This is not the cave you see on a Taxi tour, not the auditorium but a real adventure. Start off by meeting the guide ( we went with Raymond, excellent and informative), through a locked door! with the rail tracks a bit Indiana Jones, safety briefing and hard hats on, down some narrow metal steps, squeeze through a few holes...

The cave is amazing, agreed! Fantastic lighting inside makes it feel very magical, almost like a set from a movie. Mother Nature is extremely clever and the caves show just how incredible the effects of water can be. We enjoyed the walk around, however, we thought it was a bit too expensive. For our family of four, we paid an... More

We visited the caves while on a Gibraltar Tour And it was a nice stop off point. It's quite a vast space and the caves have been well lit for the people looking around. Apparently it hosts concerts which I can imagine being a spectacular palace to visit when they do.

If caves are your thing, then you will love it. I simply visited it as part of a Rock Taxi tour.I was impressed by the use of lighting, but there wasn't much else to see or do.

Visited with another 15 tourist as part of organised which also took in Europa Point, Upper Rock Nature Reserve, Apes Den as well as St Michael’s Cave. The visit to the caves was included within the price otherwise that would have been an extra £10 per person however most visitors were part of organised groups. The guide was very informative...

The caves are fantastic with the lighting effects showing the best of the natural formations, the walkways are well built and maintained and it is well worth a visit. Your ticket also gives you access to other attractions on the Rock.

The cave is really worth a visit with its great lightshow (with music!). Also, in summer, the temperature is very comfortable, good for a stop on the walk down from the rock. If I could visit a single location at the rock, it would be St. Michael's Cave.

Having visited St Michael's cave many times I was thrilled when I heard that there is a lower cave you can have a tour of with a guide. It is well worth the effort and there is a lot of effort needed as it a physical tour. Climbing through smallish gaps, pulling your self up ropes but well worth the... More
