It's a long walk if you don't get a taxi! It's worth it. It's an amazing cave with beautiful rock formations. I wasn't too sure that the light show was needed.

Spectacular caves with stalactites and stalagmites, lit up by changing colours. Not much to do apart from walking round for a bit, but as part of the reserve day ticket, worth popping in if up there for other things too

Visited the caves and they are stunning. Like a beautiful cathedral. The lighting is very well done and music as you wonder round all adding to the experience. Very spacious inside so no tight spaces. Enjoyable for all ages. A must do visit if you go to Gibraltar.

The cave was okay but there was no guide unless you had your own and it was really like walking up and down some steps with a bit of colour.

Not at all what I expected. We had entry included in our Cable car ticket. Its quite a walk from the top of the cable car, but worth the effort. The lighting gives the stalectights/mights a mysterious feeling. It was beautifully cool in there too and we went on a scorching hot day, so it was a lovely respite.

This was the most beautiful cave I ever saw. Lights were set to pronounce its beauty changing from green to blue, etc. We took many pictures here. It is for sure worth a visit.
