Beware if you are an American.

The cashier and a supervisor denied us entry because one of us was a US citizen and even though both of us had our fully vaccinated Pfizer card and they assured us prior to visiting that we would be welcomed. Even had official documents showing we were there on official business. After an hour drive to get there, left feeling completely discriminated against.

A unique experience!

This is an attraction that one must see! The detailed information during the guided tour in the visitor center is already worth it but the real fun is the boating. Highly recommended!
This attraction is very popular and has limited capacity, be prepared for booking in advance.

Short but unique experience

Foreign visitors should be aware that the guided tour is only in Hungarian. (Rumor has it that there’s audio guide in English, but I’m not sure since I’m Hungarian and didn’t need translation).

The tour guide was knowledgeable, funny and attentive. The information was neither too much nor too little.

The boat ride was fun, the water crystal clear, the path quite adventurous. Not recommended for claustrophobic people. :-)

A mini boat ride
Sep 2019
It was a one hour visit to a smal cave with a short boat ride at the bottom. We waited a little for our boat and we paddled on our own around a short circle and bumped against the walls and other boats. A very funny experiece. Worth a visit specially for young families.

We visited here with our 5 year old. There is audio tour headsets available for non Hungarian speakers and all the information throughout the walk through museum is in English and German as well as Hungarian. Really interesting and the little boat ride through the caves amazing!!

Don't waste your time.

Decided to stop at the Tapolca caves, wished we did not. Paid for our cave tickets which included their "museum". OY! I am being generous calling it a "museum", it feels like they needed to add something to the tour to extend your time and this was it. Dusty mannequins portraying primitive people with a few other items found in the cave. This thing made the Pirates of the Caribbean ride look like a visit to the Guggenheim! Then there was the cave tour itself. We were told to get into very small tin boats and go through the cave. We were NOT expecting that. And, there we were two of us trying to row a boat through a cave. No tour, no guide, it felt like an uneventful ride. If you have other options to visit then please give this one a skip. Was totally disappointed.

Excellent tour

I recently had the chance to visit this place and take a guided tour. Bence is an excellent employee with a good sense of humour. It was fascinating to see how the world was millions of years ago and how small and insignificant a human life is compared to millions of years of history.

The boat trip is definitely a plus, good fun and really not dangerous so don’t be afraid to try.

Nice, but short

The excurtion itself lasts like 15 minutes including picturing stops ( you can't stop for too long because the others can't go forward until you do). The cave is beautiful and the water is so clean and cool - very nice

The cave looks more like a rebuilt tourist attraction, nothing interesting to see in the cave (8 minutes tour) it could be interesting the first part if you speak Hungarian since the small guide tour in the museum it's only made for those speaking the language.

If you are looking to explore a cave I suggest to look to other nearby solutions , not worth the trip.

On the other hand the small lake inside the city centre is quite nice
