We finally did the White scar Cave tour, our first attempt was thwarted by flooding (August 2016). On that occasion, tour guide Tom took us as far as he could to see the raging underground river, and by chance Tom was leading the tour this...More

So if you are overweight, got a bad back or don’t like small spaces not for you! It’s a fascinating walk into a cave, you have to duck low in some places and the chap in front of me struggled due to a back injury...More

This was my 1st visit to the cave, it was interesting. You are informed on entry that there are sections where you'll need to bend yourself in 2 and they're not wrong, being just short of 6 foot I was crouching in the normal passage...More

Definitely an interesting visit for all ages. Not for the claustrophobic. It does involve a number of steps at one point. The formations in the rocks are amazing and the history of the caves is great.

Thank you. As you will have heard on the tour, the discoverer of the cave was Christopher Francis Drake Long. He displayed great determination by crawling through long, low, narrow passages to explore the cave. We can now enter via the tunnel dug by local...More

Never expected to enjoy going inside of a cave, but this place is very interesting. Our tour guide was well informed and kept our attention throughout the 80 minutes. My family are rather tall, so there were lots of places where we had to crouch...More
