Our famiky took this tour during March Break. Amazing, informative and rich in history. An hour well spent. Learn about the many battles that used this cave, the industry's roots and how the cave was used as a haven during wars centuries ago.

My husband and I recently went on the English tour of the St. Pietersburg caves. We were both quite impressed! I have only visited natural caves, so it was interesting to see a man-made cave. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and humourous, as well. The tour provided a unique look into the history of Maastricht, as we learned about... More

I study in Maastricht, but I take anyone who comes for a visit on this tour. It is a very interesting tour. It is a combination of an adventure with history. The tour guides are funny and well prepared they keep people engaged. The nice thing about these tours is that they are elaborate. Each time a guide feels like... More

Even though I live in Maastricht, whenever I receive visitors, we always come to visit the caves. The caves at St.Pietersberg and the guided tour offer a great insight into the history of Maastricht. Thanks to tours also being conducted in English, I don't have to translate which lets me enjoy the tour and learn something new every time I... More

so very interesting...hiding place since the very early times of Maastricht. See 30th Infantry and other wall paintings. Tour of caves can be scary and very-very dark!

The Caves were the highlights of my trip to Maastricht. The tour guide was very entertaining, which made the exploring of the caves even more fun! Unfortunately only one of the caves was open when I visited.

My daughter and I really enjoyed the English speaking guide. We were so interested in the history of the caves and the guide was very informative. My daughter carried one of the lanterns for a while and I was asked to open the vault where the paintings were stored during world war II. I would highly recommend.

We bought a combination ticket for the Fort & Northern caves. Our tour guide was Ed. It was very interesting to have the tour with him, as he not only explains what is to be seen, but adds with his knowledge of history and humor.

Tour is taken from same place as the tours for the fort. Took an English speaking tour which lasted about an hour. A long and varied past, which started with the mining of stone. I got the impression that there's so much to see that the tour guides vary each tour to suit. Not the sanitised over-protective environment of similar... More

We did a combined (guide) tour though the fort and the (artificial) caves. Although the sights aren't that spectacular, it's still fun and interesting. The guide was really enthusiastic and had a lot of knowledge, which made the tours worth while. We bought a combined ticket for both the fort and the Northern Caves. 10 euros per person. Pretty good... More
