We did the short English tour due to having low expectations and not wanting to get stuck with a long 3 kilometers tour. However, after getting down the steps, we quickly realized we should have done the long tour. The place is simply amazing. The kids loved it and our English guide was great. I wish I could have taken... More

Huge caves, amazing place. A shame for the guide Serena that wasn't knowlegeable at all and seemed a bit fed up with the people in general.

Went down with limited expectations, but the long tour was worth the effort. Amazing formations and the white cave was stunning.

If you want a tour in English, check out the times before you get there, as we were only able to get on a tour in Italian (or would have had to wait about 4 hours!) Also would recommend the longer tour, as the best formations are towards the end of the trail - well worth the extra hike! They... More

it was amazing we went on a day trip and found these amazing caves. I have seen many around the world but these were by far the most people friendly and what a great structure. Just do it!!

A very good cave system with some great stalagmites and stalactites. Our guide spoke very good English. We took the 11:00 English tour and so did a lot of school kids. Very packed inside and noisy. Walking out, we had to wait a long time for other groups coming in. Be careful on the wet steps going down. My friend... More

We were blown away by the caves - what an amazing sight to see! We went on a hot day so the coolness inside was welcome and I actually needed a sweatshirt. Two of our group tend to be claustrophobic but had no issues here as most of the caves are quite large. As others state in their reviews, wear... More

The cave is stunning and the views are incredible. The cave's length is about 3 km so it would take about 1,5 - 2 hours to finish the complete tour. There is also a smaller 50 minutes tour, but I would recommend taking the complete one.

We got onto an English tour at 11 am. The guide was knowledgeable, but rather curt. We took the longer route, walking 3 kms. The lighting was very good, enhancing the caves. Pity we could not photograph any part of this...I suppose they cannot trust visitors not to use their flash. The walks are very safe.
