I ended up on this tour because the people organising it didn’t put me on the correct one. Even though I did ask again before boarding the bus. Anyway, this cost more money than the tour I had booked. And I really don’t know what the payment is for. You basically sit in a van for hours and hours and look at a cave, which you have to pay more money for. It’s such an expensive trip for not much.
The last stop is very nice, but that’s it. The food place wasn’t good either.
The guide and the driver were great but I would not waste my money on this tour.

It was, of course, President Mikheil Saakashvili who came up with the brilliant idea of re-opening these caves and marketing them as Prometheus. He had a lot of these glitter projects to kick-start tourism in Georgia. Open again since 2011, visitors can visit 6 of the 22 halls, about 1,800m of the total 11km that make up all connected caves.
I found the caves mildly interesting (OK, so I am a spoiled traveler) and the visit hugely frustrating : after buying your ticket, you have to wait 20/30 minutes until they gather enough people to proceed. Once they have their required number (40 to 50) you snake SLOWLY down and up some 700 stairs, occasionally stopping for the guide to give an explanation in Georgian, then Russian, then English. It is just a painful experience.

The place was beautiful and absolutely worth seeing. The management of the place however is quite terrible. First of all, the tour is mandatory. The woman giving our tour, had a very unclear voice and almost no one could hear her. Second of all, they take in so many people at once that you won’t really be able to take pictures or observe much of the place. Third, if you book a boat ride, you’ll have the wait about 45 minutes for the boat as they take in so much people, yet the boat Carries about 10 people or less. On top of that, the staff is rude and I haven’t experienced any rudeness in Georgia besides this. They don’t really give information and seem like the genuinely can’t be bothered.

I have been to many caves in the U.S. way better than this one. They take way too many people per tour (40+). Many people are not mobile enough to navigate the numerous stairs very well, and there are a lot! The cave is not at all interesting, and there is a TON of walking upstairs and downstairs. Each stop, you have to wait for the huge group of people to arrive so the guide can begin speaking. There is more walking up and down stairs between the 3 or 4 rooms than anything else. I believe it is 1420 meters long. For those of us in the U.S. that is 15 football fields, but going up and down many, many staircases & not seeing anything spectacular. The guide did give the tour in English, but since there were no other English speakers, it was hard to hear because people started talking.

Loved it. The caves are huge, stalagmites and stalactites are very different and beautiful, the lightening adds to the effect. And the sound of underground river just makes everything right. We abandon the organized tour very quickly and enjoyed exploring the place on our own

In Georgia people will say, we have it, so you should visit it. Well.. the cave was good, but not that good. I appreciated the chance to go, but the group size was nearly 100. Easy to get lost, cannot see the guide, but that is ok. But when it was time to explain something, there were only like five English speakers in a sea of Russian tourists that ask 1000s of questions leaving little time for the rest of us to understand the cave's history. The groups need to be better organized. But the cave itself is not bad. Worth a go.

You have to go with a guided group through these caves which is a shame. The group we were in was too large, it took ages to walk from viewpoint to viewpoint. Also, the guide only said a few words when the group had stopped and it was in English but not understandable - the speaker system was no good and the guide wasn't clearly spoken. It's a shame because the caves are really spectacular.

We had planned to go on the optional boat ride through the caves but there wasn't enough water in the river when we were there.

This cave is massive and the stalagmites and stalactites are huge. We’ve seen smaller ones in the US but this was amazing. By the way the colours you see in the pics are just lighting and that also made a lot brighter on android phones. In reality the caves and the inside is cream or brown. At certain points they play music and highlight certain areas with different coloured lights in a light hue.

Really interesting caves. Huge caverns that are well lit with some nice displays. It is incredibly busy though so I would suggest going as early as possible. The tour we did was packed - at least 50 people - which made it difficult to hear the guide at times (she did the tour in 3 languages and a lot of people started talking once their language was finished). Smaller tours would make the experience far better.

This was a very big stalactite/stalagmite cave. We’ve visited many of these in various countries and this was probably the largest and longest we’ve seen. The place is well organized with guided tours. Our guide did a combination Russian/Georgian/English tour which was a bit tedious but not too bad. The tour is mostly walking with a short boat ride at the end. I’d recommend skipping the boat part as it’s short and doesn’t really add anything to the experience. Overall this was a nice excursion.
