Caves themselves were fantastic but £28 euros per person for the caves only is way overpriced. The guide seemed to want us in and out as quickly as possible as she raced ahead of everyone and began her various chats before most of us had...More

Must see and do in Slovenia. A little bit crowdy but if you prepare for that it's ok. It's good to book tickets in advance online not to wait in a long line. Definitely worth 5 stars

Your father can opt out of the walking part by taking the train back to the exit,the staff will arrange it for you.I am 77 and found the Walk steep but manageable if you take it steady. It is well worth seeing.

The caves are huge however they are quite dark and there is a point on the tour where the guide switches the lights off for 7 seconds plunging into total darkness

I would contact the caves - the staff were really good. But I would agree with the other answer that parts of the cave might not be fully accessible.
