I'm glad we visited. I'm quite claustrophobic but found it fine. Wish we had got the English translator. You go in a group and have a French guide. Each stop the guide talked for... read more

Great day out (11 year old and 8 year old). Well-run, informative stalactite/stalagmite chamber experience, and - with an imaginative but short son-et-lumiere - quite-spectacular. Digital audio guide definitely worth the Euro 0.9 extra. There was even a salle picque nique, which seemed eminently fair. Plus bits and pieces of a playground too, to keep younger kids occupied for a... More

What a fantastic place to visit. We visited with our two boys (6 & 9), and all of us were impressed. A magnificent natural wonder and a very well run attraction. Well priced and the audio tour was excellent and very informative. Some areas could be difficult to get through if you have back or mobility problems but this is... More

After having picked up around a dozen leaflets about various caves local to our campsite we chose this due to proximity and nothing else - it was a very good choice. We paid for the walking tour which was reasonably priced - we had to wait only 10 minutes for our allocated start time. We paid 90c for the translation... More

There are a number of such locations to visit in this are. We picked this one by chance. On arrival you see two prices. One for a walking visit, one using the lift. If you are of a weak disposition, do not take the latter!. You will descend in an open sided lift suspended in mid air on cables. Not... More

We have spent one morning In here. You can watch 4 special structures made by nature in 65.000.000 years. Outside there is a nice play ground area for children.

This is a must see if you are in the area. It was a great experience which was very well done, not just another cave with a few lights. We descend into the cavern via an illuminated path and finally reached a balcony. At this point the cavern is in total darkness then the show behind. Slowly the cavern are... More

The Gouffre is pretty nice and the park around it is really nice. I didn't give it five points because when you're in there, you're basically a herded sheep. There were two or three groups going on at once and it was a bit annoying waiting for the groups to get their lecture. But the cave is pretty impressive...

We were on a family holiday nearby and wanted to see some sites, but with a 6 year old and a 2 year old with short attention spans, needed fairly short trips! The cave is a sink-hole - one big cavern that contains a multitude of stalactites & stalagmites. You can either walk-in or pay extra to descend in a... More

There are lots of caves to visit in the Dordogne, especially near to Sarlat. We decided on this one because it was very close and there aren't any restrictions on opening times or numbers. It was very easy to find and the booking staff were great; there are two options, the standard where you walk in (around €10) or the... More
