Took a tour for the North Caves. There are only two English tours during the day. Guide was a decent chap. Despite the showers we had fun inside. Special attraction was the VAULT. Yes it becomes chilly once you are mid way.Best part was the walking in dark for a couple of minutes when the lanterns were turned off.

We came with a group and got a private tour in English. The service from the VVV Maastricht was friendly and welcoming, they did everything possible to fit the tour to our wishes. I highly recommend to book the tour in advanced with them! We got a tour of 1 hour in the St. Pietersberg Caves, with the wonderful, funny... More

The lady taken us down did tell lots of stories and kept us entertained with historical facts in a pleasant way for an hour. Although several groups entered the caves at the same time the group size was good everyone could hear the explanation My son (11) and enjoyed it very much

This is a must visit for any visitor to Maastricht. These limestone caves were dug up by humans for construction and elaborate labyrinths exist here. It is better to reserve a spot with the tourist office at the city centre of Maastricht (VVV). Better to stick around with the guide unless someone doesn't wants to get too nosily adventurous. ;-)

We recently went to the St. Pietersberg Caves in Maastricht. Though they are called caves, they are actually tunnels dug out for the excavation of lime stone slabs. We had a great guide who gave us loads of information about the caves and its art. He was funny too. There are several charcoal art on the walls of the cave.... More

We were told at the Maastricht Info center that there were no more English tour for that day. We decided to go anyways, because a member of our party knows Dutch. When we arrived we did inquire about an English tour and they said possibly. There ended up being 11 total in the English guided tour. The tour was great... More

A fun and informative tour. Our guide was knowledgable and funny too. Definitely worth it; reserve ahead of time if you want the English speaking tour book early because it fills up fast.
