“Interesting but for me was too long”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We took the 2 hour tour of the caves. It was nice and cool down 40metres after waiting in Sun of 30c up at the top. We were told the temperature in the caves is 12c which might be cold for some people but while you are active it is generally fine but you can feel it when you take a stop. I found that one hour would have been enough but maybe I have a low attention span!

“Interesting Tour Underground”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Really interesting tour underground with lots of interesting info provided by the guide.
Nice little side trip and fun to do something different after all the churches/museums you see on city trips. Highly recommend - North Caves (and fort) were a pleasant 15 minute walk from the city centre.

“Great tour with Joe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We hired bikes by the station and cycled here. We took the 2.00 English tour of the North caves/mines with Joe and really enjoyed it and found it very interesting. However I was a little disappointed that we did not see the evacuation areas that people sheltered in during the war but this seems to be part of the Zonneburg Cave tour.

“Well worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

We got the Rederij Stiphout boat and cave tour. About 3 hours in total. 2 hours is spent on caves between waiting for the next tour and the actual tour. Our guide for the caves was both knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend the trip to anyone visiting Maastricht. The only downside is the length of time in the caves only gives you a glimpse of the history down there.
