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.

I don't like crowds - but you can't avoid them here! Large tour groups all the time. Worth seeing and commentary very helpful. But I was glad to get outside at the end of the hour's tour

We only did the normal tour which was very interesting with some spectacular rock formations, if we'd had more time I probably would have opted for the adventure tour so as to get even more of the caves

Some very interesting caves and pretty spectacular chambers. Guided historic tour lasts an hour and is good value for money. Certainly worth a visit.

The caves look nothing from outside but once in you will be amazed by the natural formation. you have the option to go on the adventure trail which goes 1km into the caves but you will need to be unafraid of tight spaces as there is a bit of a tight squeeze as you go through. If you do not want to do that the normal trail is still a brilliant experience

On arrival for the scheduled tour, told that it is full due to coach parties. No warninbg for people arriving to book. Very poor experience and wasted morning!
