Owner description: Though damaged through shortsighted tourism schemes in the 1960s, these caves are still worth a visit for their eerie dark tunnels and stunning limestone formations.

We did the standard tour, and the guide was very helpful. The information was interesting and the caves are beautiful.

These caves are very well organised and presented. There is some slight damage but it doesn't detract from the beauty of the various chambers. There are two tours - standard and adventure. The adventure one involves some scrambling through narrow orifices but these are very well described when you get there in case you can't decide which one to go for. I did the standard one and the guide was very informative and interesting and you got time to wander round each hall as well. The food was good.

Worth a visit, interesting tour lasting about an hour, but with no confined spaces.The guide was informative, but a word of warning he said that in peak season the tour groups can be quite large.

The Cango caves is good for an afternoon out, we only did the standard tour as the adventure one was sold out, it was a nice walk and was very informative.
