An impressive site on a very wet day. We only had to wait 20 minutes for the next tour. The headphones for English commentary at 90 cents were worth it if you don't have a good understanding of French. Very spectacular stalagmites and stalactites with 4 very big structures among the hundreds of others. The additional cost for a gondola... More

I was expecting just another cave (have seen lots in the UK) so was surprised to see such an impressive geological display. It is worth booking online in advance (day before to avoid queues). Not sure I'd bother with the basket into the cave as double the price of normal ticket (but maybe once in a lifetime chance). There are... More

This is run as a very slick operation, with tours every 20 mins. The cave is great in terms of size and number of stalagmites and stalactites, but I didn't like the staging of the dramatic lighting. We had to wait two hours to get in but it was peak season in August.

Enjoyed the cave which would have 5 stars however 2 things annoy me. First the French audio commentary was so loud it was almost impossible to hear the English commentary from the ear buds. (Even with the volume on full) Second like many there is no photography. I can understand that they would not want flash. But a blanket ban... More

Having an interest in science i was really looking forward to seeing the Stalagtites inside the cave. We tried booking online as many reviews had suggested that in summer Hols but was not able to do so as an English mobile number (adding 44 at the start) did not work so I emailed and got a text back. The audio... More

Unusually it is one huge cave which you walk straight into (or you can travel in by being dropped down from the top by a cage - for twice the price!). Once it it is fascinating, you are guided round the caves and told all the stories (if you do not speak French then there is an audio guide -... More

Took our boys (8/10yrs) and it was a fun activity. Thanks to Trip Advisor reviewers, paid extra for the dramatic entrance down the gondola. It was straight out of Phantom of the Opera. We had a blast and the earphones on English were great. Super activity!

We live not far from here & it is where I always take visiting guests who all love it. It is not pre-historic but a cave,but WHAT a cave!!! Best advice I can give is to go in by the NAUCELLE which I know is a lot more expensive but really fabulous & you get a real sense of what... More

This cave does not have any prehistoric art but is about marvelling at the cavern and rock formations. It was relatively more commercialised than other caves we visited, both in terms of facilities (there's a children's play area, larger gift shop etc) and the style of tour (they play music at the beginning, show items being calcified etc). However, for... More
