Worth a higher rating if the guide was not so annoying and arrogant

We were just in the neighborhood and decided to visit the caves. The tour was € 8,-- and lasted 30 minutes. The guide spoke in English but was very rude and arrogant. She told everybody: "I am the guide I am first you must stand still". I have never in my life experienced such a rude and arrogant guide. She... More

Firstly, nice little scenic drive up and short walk to the cave. Caves are ok but the guide does have a good sense of humour and knows a lot about the caves and wildlife in the area. Certainly worth taking the time to visit, have a little giggle and maybe learn something new. Beautiful countryside around this area.

Entrance is about 50 Kuna, so not too expensive. The price includes an english-speaking tour guide. You will also get helmets for your own safety. The caves are about 200-300 meters deep, have a quite interesting history and a few bats you get to see on the ceiling. Worth having a tour and getting to know one of more than... More

Features were interesting as far as caves go, but not as magnificent as others I've seen. Very nice diversion. Tour guide was good-humored.

We had an knowledgeable and passionate guide who led us through the caves for about an hour long tour. We enjoyed seeing all the stalagmites, stalactites, large chasms, sleeping bats, small rock pools, rock formations of all different colours some glittering in the light. Definitely worth a look if you are in the area.

the cave is nice, but much smaller and less interesting than many other caves in Europe and elsewhere. If you are in the vicinity for a few days it is an option, but certainly not more than that. The guidance in English was excellent. One should know it involves 500 m walk to the tickets booth and a steep climb... More

Nice and small Cave with a very friendly Guide who let me join the last Tour. Was Lucky, this week every Day is Open due to Kroatien family week, normally in Oktober it is just Open Fr-Sun . 60 Per Person is not too much.

The tour of the cave took about hour. Our guide did our tour in 2 languages fluently and was very knowledgeable about the area and the cave itself. Located in a beautiful little park, which would be good for a nice little picnic, should you plan your tour around lunch time.

Went with my son this morning at 11AM. Walked around for 45 minutes. All structures were boarded up and no one was around. Signage was weak and the ground were a bit run down. By they time we left, there must have been 20 people there all wondering why the place wasn't open. Turns out a local said that sometimes... More

You don't know what you're on when you go into those caves. The stairs keep winding and taking yu up (preferably) eventually coming out on the upper level. Quite nice!
