I have been here before with My Husband many years ago but we thought we woud take our children to see this. I had forgotten how beautiful it was. Our guide was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. I had my 7 year old daughter and 4 year old son and both seamed to enjoy the walk through... More

We enjoyed our visit to the caves - they are definitely worth a visit, especially with kids (if they don't mind some small spaces). Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable, explaining the formation of the cave and its features clearly. This place certainly isn't for the claustrophobic, as in some places the ceiling is very low and the passage... More

Our youngest (6) handled it just fine, but it may be a challenge for the older set. Caves were flooded only a few days ago - strangle to be in a channel that was recently under water!

The caves are definitely worth a look, they are not the most exciting caves I have ever been in, but the History and the Guide made up for this! It was fun following the path of the stream/river underground ( you walk above it on a metal scaffold) There is a lot of bending and crouching, plus lots of steps,... More

Our third visit and a great place to visit on a miserable day. The waterfalls are also more impressive on a wet day. Good facilities with a café and gift shop. The guide was informative and amusing. Allow two hours for a visit. The Cave can be very low so a gorilla walk is required and there are also a... More

We visited one rainy afternoon with our 7 and 10 year old kids. We didn't really know what to expect and worried it would be claustrophobic but we didn't need to be. Yes, it is cramped in places with 2 low areas that we had to stoop our way through (we were very grateful for the helmets we were provided... More

The tour itself was very enjoyable and the tour guide certainly new his stuff. The caves are beautiful and the stories behind them are very interesting. The only downside to the day was the rude and miserable man working on the front desk. Both myself and my friend were paying by card (as were alot of people as cash does... More

Thank you for your visit, and for your review. It is good to know that you enjoyed seeing the cave. There have been days this summer when card processing in the area has been slowed by technical problems beyond our control. This has affected other places, not just us. To help speed visitors into the cave, the cashier has been... More

We ( mum,dad,son 23 and daughter 20) spent a wonderful afternoon here yesterday. The caves are beautiful and mysterious with lots of strange rock formations, waterfalls and rushing streams. Our extremely knowledgable guide, Darren, an experienced caver himself, put bags of enthusiasm and many amusing anecdotes into his delivery. We were lucky to go there on a miserable day with...

I am only 4ft 10 and even I had to crouch in parts. You are given hard hats to wear and you really do need them. Last did this 20 years ago and it was great to do it again

Visit the cave yesterday with a group of friends. I think this is the 4th time we have been in total. I first visited in a school trip, and still come back now I'm 30. Its an enjoyable visit each time, and I think the price is reasonable. There are two "Low" sections, which as a 6ft tall guy is... More
