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!

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

Set up well with guide in different languages, marvellous formations in the cave. A shame you are taken in a group because I would have liked to spend more time in some areas although reasons understandable; nice relaxing outside areas including free car park with walks through woodland.

We took the basket to the bottom of the cave, we were the entertainment for the people who had all walked down. There were just the two of us and the guide who was great, giving us a running narration in good English. The trip down in the basket was well worth the extra 8 euros. Free parking. Tickets at...

Lured here by the gondola descent. A bit expensive but definitely the best way to see the cavern, never done anything like that before, friendly guides.

This cave was incredible. We were able to get very close to the stalactites and stalagmites which was incredible, the sound and light show I liked however I had an English headset describing the parts of the cave and its history. We were also told how they are making pottery covered in the calcium deposits which leaves a glittery hard... More
