“Not very inspiring”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Not very inspiring this. The lighting makes a rather dull rock formation look pretty. Please note, the tour is very arduous and not for people with health problems or taking young children. Health and Safety seems to have been completely ignored with very dangerous areas not safeguarded. It passes an hour or so but not something I'd rave about. Most people will find the low rock ceiling annoying as you have to walk huncvhed over for a lot of the time.

“Worth a look”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Loved the optical illusion even though I'd seen it before. disliked the very large group with a guide trying to speak in at least three languages. Her English was not the best so i didnt get as much of the background info as I did on my first trip here in a purely english speaking group a few years ago

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

A guided tour takes you down into the caves and along quite a stretch of lava tunnel. Interesting rock/lava formations and the concert hall was quite a surprise. Very good guide.

“very average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

Took time to visit the caves and to be honest we should have saved our money and kept going. Firstly we could not make out what the guide was saying, the microphone system didnt help but as soon as she spoke english she went back as quick to Spanish. Caves themselves are quite good in places but not particulary special. There were other sights in Lanzarote which were either free or half the price and were 100 times more spectacular.

“Never a dull moment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

The lady guide informes the tourist in several languages at the same time which makes it a little confusing but if you block that out snd just feast your eases on all the beaty surrounding you its a nice site to visit.All the thing to do asn see are also very suitable for children and fun to do.
