Really interesting to learn about the history of these man-made caves under a hill. Lots of memorable drawings on the walls, and the ww2 art vaults were a highlight. Be sure to keep up with the guides, as it's pitch black down there without a...More

我的英文程度並不是特別好,行前導遊Edwin特別確認了大家的英文程度。並且用簡單易懂的英文單字向我們解說,說的徐緩清楚,讓大家有發問的空間,也很熱心地回答我們的提問。還體驗了全黑環境的感覺,令人印象深刻。非常開心能遇到Edwin L! My English is not very well. Thanks Edwin use simple words to explain, let me can realize what he says. And the no-light experience is interesting, Thank you Edwin L!

The caves look inviting and there seems to be lots of them based on what we could discern from the viewing platform. I wish we'd had time to walk down to explore them, but didn't.

This is a must do activity, Unless one is claustrophobic. Could enjoy it more because of our guide ; he knew how to entertain and keep us in good humour

Very impressive. We did the combined tour of the fort and caves. Ed on the Cave tour and Dory on the fort tour were both great guides. Well worth the $10.20 fee.

The website has three options (plus a combined tour) - the North Caves, Zonneberg Caves and Casemates. Which would you recommend? Is the fact that we're using public transport from Maastricht city center a factor in deciding?
