Visited here with my family and girlfriend. Had a tour with Gerald. It was absolutely fantastic. Gerald was brilliant, interactive and a great story teller. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would highly recommend to anyone. Considering going back in summer after Gerald’s recommendations.

Yes, the last 3 bridges were opened when I was there in September. The only place still closed is the entrance to the small cave.
