Well again, not to repeat what others have said but we also arrived late for the last tour of the day. The little cafe had great ice cream which we ate while we waited. The tour itself lasted maybe 30 mins or less but was entertaining and the cave was beautiful although I have to admit that I personally like... More

We arrived just as a tour was about to start but I wouldn't worry if you have to wait on a tour as there is a kafenion next to the ticket office with stunning views. The tour is very informative and the caves and the formations of stalagmites and stalactites simply stunning with great use of varied coloured lighting to... More

For me, it is a must go destination in Crete. The guided tour is very cheap. No reason or excuse to miss it.

I never visited a cave before but, find it really beautiful. The guided tour is very cheap, like five euros per person. No reason or excuse to miss it.

The facility was well organised with good parking, clean toilets and a good cafe. The tour itself was great, with a guide providing English and Greek information.. They may do other languages as well. The walkways are very good, just be careful not to slip in the metal ramps. The cave formations are incredible with stalactites and stalagmites very well...

I had not expected such a well organised and informative tour. It was really interesting and the cave formations were well lit. The cave is fitted with metal walkways making access good. As an added bonus it was wonderfully cool down there on a hot July day. The cafe was good. We only had drinks but the service was good.... More

We were recommended by our tour operator to visit this cave and were not disappointed. The tour itself lasts for 20-30 minutes and it is very informative. Inside of the caves is very beautiful and it is hard to imagine for how long they been forming there.
