We did not have time to visit all the caves and this one was recommended. The cave is very large and it took quite a long time to get round. The cave is full of stalactites and stalagmites in many interesting formations. The guide did an excellent job and it is really spooky when they turn the lights out. You... More

We visited the caves with our two little kids , it was a challenge to go down 42 meters on stairs with little kids and come up, but worth the effort because you will never see such a great wonder of nature. Staff is friendly and helpful, well recommend, except the cafe in the location, everything over priced ! We... More

Had no idea there were any caves in the area, let alone one as beautiful and astonishing as this one. Quite mind blowing. Tom the guide was a great source of information. Could have spent weeks in there and not seen everything. The restaurant and amenities are also top class,

Nice way to see the underworld. Pristine caves leisurely explored under the professional guidance of Rikki. All aspects of stalagmites and stalactites explained. Ants and tights joke may need further explanation. Fun time had.

We visited last weekend, and really enjoyed the experience. Rusty was our tour guide, and he was great - very pleasant, and knowledgable. The cave itself is a really fantastic place to visit, beautiful and very peaceful. Highly recommended.

As a nature lover, I love the huge chamber of the cave. But the tour was overcrowded and it kinda spoilt the atmosphere. They were talking loud and above the voice of the guide. So I did not get to hear any commentary from the guide. Too many kids in the group and irresponsible parents that slowed down the whole... More

We came here and discovered a beautiful place. The guide, Krusty, was really nice and entertaining. Awesome pictures. The only thing I can regret is that photos could only be made on plateforms. It helps to have a better walking experience, so you move faster with the group, but it is more tricky to have the best pictures.

This living cave is a wonder. I think every cave is so different but this one has been so well preserved with little damage. It is so very beautiful. Be careful though it is a deep cave and the steps can get very narrow and watch you head! Don't take a lot to carry. Young kids will have to be... More
