These are very extensive caves, well lit, with a good path for the guided groups. The guide repeats his spiel in several languages very quickly. There is a musical light show at one of the stops on the tour. We took in the caves as part of a bike tour starting in Arta. The whole tour was very pleasant.

A very enjoyable visit to these caves. The tour takes about an hour and a short trip on the boat good. A band plays for 10 minutes. It cost about 15 euro a head to get in but worth it. Would go back again.

Nice caves, not so busy as the more popular, but very nice for sure. No concert on a boat, but small music and light show.

Most people on Majorca visit the caves of drach, which we have & enjoyed it. But this time we decided to visit here too. We will be back - no magnificent entrance, just a small gate but behind that gate a wonderful experience is waiting. The groups taken round are small, which is great & the knowledge of the guides...

We drove to these caves and at first I thought 12 euros each to go in was expensive, but I was wrong. It was wonderful and worth every cent!

The cave is big in size, interesting structures and formation, unfortunately and due to primitive explorations at the early stages, lots of carbon residue formed at the surface of the stony structure that gave it slightly dull appearance. The guides are good and speaks many languages, but didn't sound enthusiastic and didn't answer all questions. Having said all of the... More

A great way to spend a few hours in the cool! Was a fascinating tour. Hell is the best bit. We took a nice walk to the caves from Canyamel beach, following the rocky shoreline, and through the trees. Tip - you may want to take a jumper.

This 250 million old caves will take your breath away. Guided tour with loads of information a bit of a light show. Well worth it

The caves at Arta are spectacular and well worth a visit no question , we have more fun however looking round the town of Arta a traditional working town that is adapting beautifully to tourism with cafes and bars in interesting old properties , very cosmopolitan which is a curious thing in such a lovely traditional town, we love it.
