“Not for those who don't speak French”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

While the caves are impressive, we could not understand a single word of the commentary given by the tour guide because she spoke only in French. When we bought our tickets at the counter, we were told that the guides would speak in English only if there were enough English speakers on the tour. So as it turned out, there weren't enough English speakers on the tour I went on.

The number of English speakers on your tour being a hit-and-miss affair, I would advise those who speak only English to avoid these caves and go see some others elsewhere.

We were given a printed guide in English to read while on the tour, but it was hard to know which parts of the cave the printed guide was referring to so we mostly felt lost during the tour.

We also went on the animal safari, which I felt was a cop-out because the number of animals featured were small. But my husband liked that he got to see animals such as deer roaming around in the vast open fields. The mountainous terrain the animal safari was set on was pretty scenic too, but that was about it.

To top off our lacklustre experience here was that signage around the caves complex is very poor. We spent ages just trying to find the ticketing counter for the caves. We were also confused over what time the trams left for the various attractions, or even where they left from because there were no signs.

The restaurant outside the exit of the caves served a limited choice of mediocre fare but you had no choice, there being nowhere else to eat.

The only good thing was that it had a nice children's playground which my three-year-old child enjoyed.

“See only the cave! No extra”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

The caves are huge and beautiful ! I've seen a few similar caves in the U.S. and France and these are the best !
The other attractions are a reap off . The safari tour and the 4 D movie are a waist of your money and time!
I highly recomend the cave and that's it !!!

“Great natural wonder, pathetic begging guides”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Absolutely worth going to ( just the caves) coz all the rest is really poor entertainment and meant for young schoolkids. Avoid high season and be prepared at the end of the tour for a begging guide. Furthermore don't eat in the village ( expensive and poor quality), Oh yes, the caves are pretty cold !!

“Magnificent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I was Verry impressed with the enormous ancient caves, this is definitely a must-see for all who are a bit interested in nature. Had a fun guide, the caves were beautiful and intriguing.

At a sudden moment the guide puts out the lights in a gigantic underground hall, through which the river flows very loudly. This was terrifyingly beautiful, a moment I wont forget lightly.

“Waouw the best expérience in belgium”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

We decided with some friends to experience the night with the bears!!! It was the best choice of how to spend a grat moment and share a unique experience with friends and kids. After having done a private visit of the cave with a very professional guide, we crossed a field in the most beautiful valley in Belgium to reach our camp. The bears were as expected huge!!! The organisation was perfect. We choose the pierrade and the dinner was perfect! The service was outstanding, Simon taking care of us and the 10kids, helping us and making of our stay a unique experience. In the morning after having had a huge breakfast we made a tour of the reserve and went feeding the wolfes! Again a "once in your life experience"! I have only one advice do it!!!!
