The Cave of the Lakes is a good stop on the way from Northern to Central Peloponnese.
The cave is well lit and you can take plenty of pictures,

The caves are interesting and was good to see them. Unfortunately you can't take photos. We paid 9 euro per person for an 'English speaking guided tour', was not worth it because the guide spoke very limited English, and only told us what was written on the information pamphlet anyway.

We have visited the cave in October,although it was after the summer the lakes were very impresive. This cave is a very special one. It lies in a very high position. The stalagmites and stalactites are very unusual and the reflection in the lakes creates a spectacular picture.
Unfortunately there was no guided tour in English, but we received printed explanations in English.
Comparing this cave to Perama cave, which is much bigger, but with many stairs and you view the same all the time,this one is much unique. If you'll visit this cave, you can give up the Perama.

This could have been a great place to visit, but the price of 27 euro for two adults and two older persons is a bit on the steep side for what is on offer. The "guide" called us forward with another couple and preceeded to steam ahead at full pace with the commentary in Greek. I asked politely if she could guide us in English and she said "no". And that was that. (Now before you start, I wasn't expecting her to speakj fluent English or indeed any other language, but the many attractions that I have been to over the years in many different countries, do cater for the tourists - this one does not, they just take our money).

This is all such a shame because the caves are fantastic. Just read the paper guidance notes before you go in and take a small torch so you can then read them at each designated point. Being left to our own in the caves was a little unnnerving, as the guide oomed off with the other couple, but we had fun anyway - oh, and you can't take photgraphs - but when the guide has run off, there's no-one to stop you is there?

(Just as a side note, the photos on this page are not of the caves, but of the monastery at Mega Sileo - a good place to visit)
