The cave is actually pretty small, but interesting for the kids to see and beautifully clear water. Well organized (although we went at what was probably a non-peak time). Souvenir shop has lots of

The boat trip and the commentary by the student were interesting. For the price you pay the trip is quite short. It was also a shame that the boat did not turn to allow all people to take good fotos. Corona measures are in place with face masks and hand sanitizer. For people with a mobility issue - please take into account that before getting to the sight you have to climb a set of stairs or walk up a steep hill. Inside the sight there are again a fairly large number of stairs to climb down and back up again - see their webpage.

A lovely boat ride, animated by a young and dynamic guide. Only wish it lasted a bit longer! Do not miss the trouts!

Boat trip along an underground lake. Interesting to see but it doesn't last long. There is a commentary from the guide but we couldn't hear much due to a whining child who never shut up. Take a tip and board the boat last; that way you will be sat next to the guide and will hear the commentary better. They could really do with speakers along the boat.

The Lake itself is of some interest if you like this kind of thing but the tour is very short, consisting of being rowed from one end to the other and back again, and lasts only about 25 minutes in total. Our guide was clearly bored with the routine and made little effort to answer the questions asked by visitors in anything more than a perfunctory manner. Until the end of the trip when he made it very clear that tips were expected... A bit of a tourist trap really, with gift shop etc to suck up even more of your money.
