My family and I recently had a super time on the Cave tour. Christopher is a great guide and a pleasure to listen to. We appreciated his knowledge and the passion that he has for his work. After spending approximately 60 minutes enjoying the fantastic views and nature, we headed back via the 175 steps. Great exercise!! We would definitely recommend this as an activity, especially if you have energetic boys who love outdoor activities.

Our family absolutely loved this experience. Our guide, Christopher, was so knowledgeable and really engaged our children (aged 11, 9 and 5) on their individual levels. The views were spectacular and walk was manageable for us all. I would highly recommend a visit.

My partner and I had a private tour with Peter. He explained the Origins of Man really clearly and the caves were fascinating. Great to see them with someone involved in their exploration. Fantastic to hold some of the tools worked locally and have their 'manufacture' explained to us. The two hours flew by.

Wow, what a treat it is to encounter a person who is not only an expert in his field, but communicates and shares his knowledge in such an engaging way that both teens and adults are all ears and practically makes us want to pick up studying archeology! Dr. Peter Nilssen is that kind of person. We were lucky enough to have him guide us on the cave tour, and enjoyed every minute of it. The walk is also in dramatic and beautiful scenery, and makes for a nice experience in itself. There were both young kids, teens and adults in our group, and we were all entertained. Would definitely recommend this tour to anybody with an interest for history, and learning to see the landscape and how it can reveal signs of history if you know what to look for!
