We queued for more than 2 hours just to get in. There were toilets of a kind (holes in the floor- we have not mastered these yet!!!!) so waited. After finally getting in, we waited again to be taken round, despite being with lots of...More

The cave system is quite big, with good infrastructure for tourists. Not much physical exertion required, except going up down normal stairs. There is a small ferry ride which adds to the experience, and the rock formations add to the ambience. Keep a light jacket...More

This is an amazing place to visit, the sights are phenomenal! The tour guide was friendly, funny and helpful. The train and boat ride was pretty cool as well. The only pet peeve I'd say is that if you're an English tourist, the narration voice...More

Parking tricky. Spent ages queuing in multiple places. Queuing not ideal with young(ish) children. Caves were visually very interesting and kept children interested for a while. Children enjoyed train at end best. A little over priced.

This place hasn't changed since it opened and it's all the better for it. The toilets smell like the French school trip hotel when you were 16. The whole place is dusty, ragged and slightly disorganised BUT the caves are seriously impressive. They. Are. Huge....More

We arrived, well signed and good parking, but the toilets by the car park are disgusting. About an hour's queue. A bit confusing, do you take the flag signalling your language, we did and got marshalled with a few other English speakers and eventually tagged...More

We had a great guide, he was such fun, wore a beret and was simply made for this job, from Morocco I think he said. This is a super place to visit, you trek along the caves and then have a lovely boat and train...More
