Funny guide, don't miss it if you're in Maastricht

Walking in the dark of empty caves it's not really appealing unless you have a guide cracking jokes all the time and give you a very useful insight to this humid place.

We visited the lime stone caves' English tour at 12:30 at "Grotten Nord", the North entry to the caves. It was a very interesting tour which made me feel like I was inside an ancient pyramid. Our fun guide, Dominic, was very good and explained well the history of the caves.

We did a combined boat trip with the caves. The cave tour was really interesting with a knowledgeable and friendly guide, Pieter. The stories associated with the caves are fascinating and the scale of the caves is awesome.

I've been there for the 3rd time, this time in the high season. I was happy that my friend had booked the tickets online, otherwise we would be up for a wait, despite 2 tours departing at the same time! Our tour guide was George and he delivered great explanation for the caves and some modern technology supporting them. Underground... More

We have taken the combination guided trip to the cave and the castle. Our guide Paul did a very good job in explaining the history of the castle and keeping it interesting. The caves -north entrance- was also very interesting but was rather short.

This was a great start to our trip around the Netherlands. The one hour tour made me feel like I was stepping inside a pyramid or ancient ruin. With interesting artistic pieces etched into the walls and a fascinating history explained by our fun guide, these man made caves are a great experience to enjoy! The highlight for me was... More

I've been living in Maastricht for 3 years and last weekend I finally visited the caves. It's definitively a must see in Maastricht! Our guide, Jelena, was great! She told us about the origin of the caves, the drawings that can be seen on the walls, the dinosaurs that were found around the location... She also let us walk through... More

For Maastricht, this is a must do tour. The caves have been around for 2000 years, so there is extensive history. As they are man made, there is plenty of space for walking. Light jacket recommended

We went to the Sint Pietersberg and its lime stone caves with our 6 and 8 year olds and we all loved it. We went for he English tour at 12:30 at "Grotten North", the North entry to the caves. It was very informative and fun. Our guide was very knowledgeable and really shared loads of bits of interesting facts... More
