Plenty of free parking on site, 6 euros per adult to get in and very quiet when we went so ended up with a private tour. Short walk underground to the boats and the tour was only about 10 mins but the guide was fun, singing to us with the great acoustics in the cave. Really enjoyed it, beautiful clear water and something a little different to see

A nice little boat ride around these interesting caves with a knowledgeable, singing guide who offered to take photos of everyone with their phones. Only lasted about 10 minutes or so, but long enough to experience the beauty of the caves and only 6 euros

If you come to Kefalonia you MUST do the Melissani Cave, if you do nothing else! The water is crystal clear, try to go as close to midday as possible for some great photo opportunities!

Worth the 6 euro entrance for the 10 minute or so trip. Intersting to hear where the water comes from - we did visit the sink holes the previous day so nice to connect the journey. lovely blue clear water. wish we could swim!

The Cave itself was worth a visit, and is beautiful, however as an experience it was not good. The guy on the boat whizzed around the cave as fast as he could. He gave a brief narrative about the cave, but it was BRIEF !! He was more interested in taking a couple of photos for us, but then menacingly mentioning tips. (I did not give one, as I only tip for good service and could have taken a selfie if I had so desired.) it is definitely a tourist trap at 12 euros for less than 10 minutes, not really giving you time to take in the beauty of the cave. I found the man to be unfriendly, unhelpful and quite rude, despite the fact that they advertise trips with friendly knowledgeable guides. It is worth a visit, but just be prepared for the aggressive nature of the guides. Maybe I was unlucky with mine who knows, but they all seemed uninterested and more concerned with arguing about whose boat was next. This is my opinion, but just being honest about my experience to try to prepare others for theirs. The cave would get 4/5 but sadly the guy would get a 0/5 so making it an average of 2/5.
