Toured the caves today, and it was fascinating! I hesitated to go because I am a bit claustrophobic, and I'm terrified of bats! Determined to go anyway, and I am so very glad I... read more

Very nice tour, very educational and nice to see and tourguide Paul has a funny and clear way to tell things, they are actually mineshafts carved out in limestones. A good experience as a tourist in my own country.

I was amazed at how hard the work must have been for those working in the quarries. This was before mining machines. Just getting the stone out was a feat. The guide was extremely good. He had a very good sense of humour.

These man made caves are incredible, some 420KMs of tunnels. Tourists are only allowed in about 2km, but there is more than enough history and theatre (thanks to our excellent guide) to keep one happy. Warning! make sure you have a jacket or jumper, the caves are cold and damp and anyone without a second layer is likely to get... More

We did combitour with both fort and the caves. For people who have visited other mines in Valkenburg, don' t miss this! These caves definitely have their own unique history and whole lot of stories and are definitely worth to see! You are only allowed to tour with the guide but not all the tours are the same. Our guide... More

These 'caves' are actually old sandstone mines which were dug out over many years and form a huge network which covers a lot of the St Pietersberg hill. Note that there seem to be two separate tours which go to different parts of the tunnels. We took the tour of the North caves, which you can do in combination with... More

We went to a conference event in the caves which wasn't great because it was too cramped and getting the food was difficult as people struggled to move around. Most left quite early it seemed. That said the complex is really impressive and I would quite like to go back and see it without the crowds and the music.

Our English speaking guide for the 2pm caves tour "Kitty" was great, she took us deep under ground to explore various tunnels. The exploring was fun (some optional walking in the dark) with a lot of local knowledge and a bit of humour. Thank you Kitty for a great excursion. Tours in English are held at 12.30pm and 2pm last... More

Hour long tour, quite fascinating but not great if you not comfortable in the dark. Guide very knowledgeable but is a bit samey after a while. Quite a steep walk up to the meeting point with the guide.

Both the caves and the Fort are well worth seeing- if you get them together it costs €9.95 and you get a guided tour. This was very good and with a good amount of humour included!
