“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Our English speaking guide was excellent and knowledgeable. Amazing place with so much history. It is not for anyone who is claustrophobic.

“What fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

It was amazing to go through the mining tunnels; to hear about the history of the country; and to see the art on the walls. I thought there would be bats based on the ticket booth decor, but there weren't and I was relieved.

Dear regina w,

Thank you for writing this review! You were a bit early for the bats! They are normally always there in winter time :)

“Ask about the art hidden during WWII”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We had an excellent guide. His knowledge of history of the time was tremendous. Ask him a question he could answer it.

“St. Pietersberg Caves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Very interesting experience. We had a great guide who really brought this sight to life. You are walking in a cave so the ground is a bit rough but no problem for almost any traveler who is not disabled. Remember to check ahead of time because not all tours are in English.

“Made our Maastricht visit complete”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

This was a really great activity to do in Maastricht. We went on the english tour-- which was funny, informative and interesting. We learned interesting history and scientific facts and even got to try to walk in the caves in the pitch black dark. I won't ever forget the random facts or amazing coal drawings from the tour. I highly recommend taking the time to go. Its a nice 30 minute walk from the city center.
