I don't know how I found myself in a cave in Maastricht when I am terrified of the dark and fairly claustrophobic, but I'd still recommend the experience! Our guide was fantastic, we learned some neat city history. and it was just a different experience than any other walking tour. There is a lot of neat artwork in the cave... More

Much better than what they advertise! It is a really cool experience, the caves are super impressive and full of interesting stories around Nazis and Rembrandt's painting... Won't tell anymore because don't want to spoil you experience, but really worth a visit! There is a small chalet on top of the "mountain" where you can have a brink/bite before going... More

It's a must see in Maastricht. The tour guide was an incredibly fun person ( I forgot his name now, but very good English and sense of humor). Temperatures are at a constant 10 degrees with a humidity of 90%, bring a sweater. Parking is very convenient and free. The old drawings inside the cave are very impressive. When the... More

800 year old sandstone mine which has hosted some interesting historical events.We got the opportunity to walk down one corridor in complete darkness. Eerie but tranquil. Same temperature year round at 11 degrees Celsius. Justyna (Timberlake) was our guide and she did a great job. A+

This was a good walk from the center of the city through parks and up a hill. (perhaps 30 minute walk) The tour was interesting and afterwards, eating in the cafe overlooking Maastricht was a nice way to end the day.

Not far from downtown, we walked there in 25 minutes. Good English speaking tour guide for only 6EUR all in per person. It's an interesting and different kind of caves from others I've seen and has a good story behind it and lots to see inside. Above which there is a very nice cafe with a good view over the... More

These spacious limestone mines are worth seeing but it all gets a bit same after a while and despite the enthusiastic guides it all goes on a bit too long. The pictures the guides stop off at are not too well done. There is little to see down here. The area where the French tried to blow up the caves... More

If you are in Maastricht go to the caves we go twice a month.this is such a beatifull place you cant see this anywhere. This is where the People stayed in the war. But go with a guid because maybe you will not find your way out. It is very dark inside and 12 degrees.

It was worth going for the tour alone, the tour guide was an incredibly fun person (i forgot his name now but very good english and sense of humour.) It's interesting to hear about how these caves were used etc too, the caves themselves are just holes in rock don't expect too much but i would totally recommend it. The... More

Very memorable experience. The guide Ed was 1st class, explained everything in good english. I did the 2pm tour. The adventure part where they removed the lights was fun. Very impressive to understand how much excavation was done to remove so much lime stone. Definitely worth a visit. Tickets price was very reasonable. Tour was meant to be an hour... More
