As per me this is the place not to be missed at Dinant, although most people tend to not visit the same as it not really much talked about and also it is located on the other side of the river of the major attractions. Also if viewed from outside the little shed doesn’t look too promising but you will... More

The church is a gotic one, built over an old romanic one. Some vitrals where destroyed during wars, but still the best is perfect.

For 9 euro, I completely recommend it. In addition to friendly personnel, you will get a discount for Leffe's abbey and the citadel. The cave is a bit cold, and the trip takes about 50 minutes. Our guide spoke French and English very well.

The gentleman that lead the tour spoke English well. He was friendly and permitted us to take pictures. He was very informative about the caves and gave some history on the discovery as well as how it was used as a shelter during WWII. He was very knowledgeable about the caves which was great for a little science lesson for... More

Beautiful caves, really pretty and well maintained. A must see specially for big kids. The guide is excellent, and has a clever way of explaining facts. In addition, he speaks good english. The tour starts at the beginning of every hour, so don't arrive at 1.30 for example to avoid waiting Take care, don't go down if you are claustrophobic... More

Very nice caves. Worth the visit if you are in Dinant for the day. The caves are well maintained since more than 100 years now. Our guide was trilingual (FR/NL/EN) and gave us interesting facts about the caves, its history, the bats,etc. Pay attention to the banister : they are in "false" wood..."Art nouveau" style according to our guide.

Not only are these caves a geological masterpiece, but they also form a very interesting, covert part of WW2 history. The guide was very helpful and informative with his talk (Eng, Fre, Ned) and the staff in the ticket office were absolutely charming. A really great trip and good value for money. Not suitable for very small children or elderly... More

Well lit impressive caves, some of the best show caves we have visited. No evidence of damage from people taking souvenir stalactites which spoils many caves. Helpful guide asked what language we wanted the tour in.

I found it interesting, but it really wasn't so easy for me to be underground in a damp, relatively lit, underground series of chambers. I really didn't back out for my husband's sake, but it kinda creeped me out. By the time I got used to it, it was time to head up to the exit. By the way the... More
