As the narration was in Dutch we didn't understand a word. It would have been better if they had provided one of those machines with earphones. They provided an A4 sheet with text but unless you read it before the trip, it was too dark in the caves to read anything.

Dear BeaWilmslow, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We have actually daily tours in the English language. During the summer months (July & August), these are every day at 12:30 and 14:00 at the North Caves (Address: Luikerweg 71, Maastricht). The other tours (11:00 and 15:30) are only available in Dutch. You can find the full... More

I would always recommend this place if you are in Netherlands for some time. There is a guide who takes you through the cave, which can be completely dark and he explains the historical significance of the cave. This can be covered during a day trip to Maastricht.

The caves was amazing! I know it's manmade but I still amazed! The tour guide speak Deutch but since I was the only one that cannot speak Deutch, he gave me a special explanation in English! How thankful I am. Besides caves itself, the view when you walking up to caves was beautiful. I recommend this caves for sure!

I will highly recommend this visit to the caves. In the beginning it felt a bit scary but with our tour guide the more we entered in the more I liked it. We took the ticket for caves only but I will recommend to purchase a combo ticket for both caves and the fort.

The visit to caves was a nice experience, The guide is cheerful person who made the trip through caves more interesting. It was one hour viewing of a centuries long history and people's hard life. Walking in the dark for even a several minutes could capture all miserable life of workers who were lost here. The surrounding of the caves... More

Dutch sites are generally well sign posted. This has to be the worst. We knew that there was a cave tour, but were not able to find any relevant sign post except a photo and no counter. ONLY to find out later you can buy tickets at the restaurant nearby. No info in any Maastricht guide books. The management is... More

Really pleased we decided to do this on Thursday 5th June. We booked tickets at info centre in town then walked to the caves easily in about 20mins. Had a coffee at the meeting point before starting the English tour at 12:30 that lasted 1 hour. Our guide Peter was so interesting. I was not sure how I'd go underground... More

This is a one hour tour. The cost is 12euros for two people. It is not something I would say much when traveling but it would be worth the price at double the cost. The guide was informative as well as diligent in conversing in English. The tunnels are impressive in both size and condition. The location where you meet... More

It was supposed to be easy to get there by boat but we found out that you have to tell them ahead of time that they should dock. Regardless, when we finally got there the caves were amazing! The art work within was more interesting and impressive than that found in many a museum. By the way the boat ride... More
