A group of us decided to go on a day trip to experience something new. We had never been caving before and so it fit the bill. Our guide Tim really made it a brilliant experience that we won't forget. We learnt so much and had a great laugh for the entire trip. I would highly recommend Backwest Adventures as their tour guide Tim was full of knowledge and had a great sense of humour. Will definitely be doing this again!

Having been in a few caves abroad, this was my first time in one, in Ireland, despite being Irish and living here (!) and I have to say I was really impressed- it was amazing down there. I could've kept going for longer, I loved exploring the caves and would definitely recommend doing this. Tim was a great guide too and knows his stuff- me and my friends had a brilliant time, Thanks Tim!

Had an absolutely brilliant caving experience with our guide Tim . He knew a lot about the area and the rocks and really looked after us - the cave itself was beautiful - I would recommend this to anyone.

My partner and I decided to go caving to experience something different. We were not too sure of what to expect, and we actually had an amazing time! Tim and Terry are very nice and very helpful. I would recommend doing this to anyone! We will certainly do this again!

Great day out with Terry and Tim. Did not know what to expect when going caving but my eyes have being opened up to a whole new world. It is amazing whats hidden away from us underground and the 2 boys are competent in explaining the rock formations and origins of the caves. Hail rain or shine I recommend doing this activity. I for 1 will be back. Cheers for the tour lads. See u soon
