We've done this trip a few times now but our favourite has to be the Christmas one. They put on a panto in the caves which was fab the year we went, there's also loads of decorations and a Santas grotto where Santa comes and joins you on the boat and gives presents and poses for photos. We couldn't rate... More

Words don't describe how good and informative this tour is. We were coerced into this visit ( our second over the years) by a guy i think they called Elvis while we were wandering around the bclm. Then the tour, Phil the captain is a credit to the tour and makes it a good laugh, enjoyable and informative.

This trip is really worth going on - it's informative and really interesting. The only thing that spoiled it for us was the crying of the two very young children sitting nearby who were presumably frightened in the tunnels. My advice would be to avoid the trip if you have very young children.

First time for us with our 7month old and 5 year old on the santa canel trip. Kids seemed to really like it, could be better like most things , the panto was a good idea but maybe a more christmas theme would have been more entertaining!! Santa came on the boat for presents and photos and was very good... More

We decided to book the sants trip to be a little bit different from the norm and me and my partner have always wanted to go on a trip just never found the time. I had heard good word already from other parents but was amazed at what we actually got for the price. It was beautiful. The hard helmets... More

Well the centre is very nice and new, the tunnels were illuminated very festively. All in all it was lovely for the children they really enjoyed meeting Santa in a cave. The panto was a bit... forced but on the whole added to the experience
