Spectacular caves but poor guide

I really enjoyed the caves which were beautifully lit and contained spectacular stalagmites and stalactites as well as very unusual triangular calcite deposits. The accompanying... read more

We are a family of 5 - on our visit to Gouffre de Proumeyssac we decided to try the extra's - a pure waste- the caves were lovely but the commentary on the tour was very poor- we got the headsets (extra cost) and they were very basic english speaking commentary, the guides spoke very quickly in French and we...

I really enjoyed the caves which were beautifully lit and contained spectacular stalagmites and stalactites as well as very unusual triangular calcite deposits. The accompanying music also added to the atmosphere. However, whilst the caves are well worth viewing beware of expecting to understand the guide in French if you are a non native speaker. I went with two modern... More

The cave may be spectacular but the guide was totally disappointing. Audio was not offered . The guide spoke so quickly and in a style of French that was not understood. We had two members of our group who teach and speak French and they could not understand him. There were signs up saying no photos but everyone was. This... More

A unique visit to the wonderful magic that is underground. The cave have been well preserved and set out in an informative guided way. The guides are very knowledgable and able to answer questions clearly. The sites are spectacular and the added touch of the light and sound show makes a great impression.

One of the most beautiful naturally occurring caverns in the world. It is wonder to the eyes. Difficult to describe. A must see if you are in the area

A very well set up and beautiful tour. You enter as a group of about 20 people, or in a lift as about eight of you (which is slightly more expensive). The cave is dark and cold - advise a cardi. The lights go out and then begins a beautiful light display and small walking tour of these extraordinary caves.... More

We visited the caves on a quiet Sunday off season. We were able to book the basket and it was like coming down in the tardis. The light show was very good and we invested in the headphones which did not overload with information. The tour was interesting and the cave fascinating and beautiful. Best attraction by far for me.

We did enjoy our visit to what is a very attractive natural site. However it is not particularly suited to young children. The darkness during periods of the sound and light show (which older children and adults will enjoy a lot) can be alarming to younger children. It is also quite a slow walk around which means it will fail... More

Had a great time in this cave. Great interactive science activities for kids to do while waiting above ground for our slot for the tour. Lovely cafe to have a drink too. The Cave tour was interesting and well organised. The formations in the cave were amazing and we all loved climbing out through the narrow slippery passageway ....
