you visit the cave onboard a small electrical train... superb rock formations: stalactites and stalacmites, waterpools where the roof is reflected in the calm water ... cheap and less crowded than other places

A train into the depths. A good guide who will keep you informed in English if you let him know. An extensive system which takes about an hour and a half for the full trip. Some amazing sites. There is a lot of walking and many steps so beware.

The subterranean trip takes about 1 hour 40 minutes; it's a guided tour and the guide we had (there are at least two, leading groups around at any one time) was clearly a most amusing fellow but spoke French with the local dialect that defeated us almost entirely. So, we trudged around in the darkness, bumping into sharp-elbowed crones jostling for views of the stalagmites and stalagtites and crystalline growths and amazing galleries illuminated mainly in dim orange light but some in almost pitch dark. There is a quaint little train to take you from the shop-ticket office into the mountain and a lift or steps up into the galleries. The natural displays are quite wonderful and worth all the shuffling and jostling and proximity of 30 strangers huddling together to listen to a guide who can be heard by perhaps 15 at the front and understood by fewer. It was for us a surprise to find the grottes just by the side of the road near the river and we are glad we did.

We visited out of season in September with our young son. The train ride into the caves was very enjoyable but the caves themselves are magnificent. Stalagmites and stalactites everywhere, truly stunning! The tour guide was friendly and although the tour was conducted in French, he made an effort to give us a quick summary in English. To be honest, just looking around you is enjoyable enough. Highly recommended!

Extensive cave with really impressive formations. Nice touch with the electric train, adding to the overall experience for your four year old! Shame about lack of English but you can read up about it separately as your attention is certainly taken up by what you are seeing. We went first thing and didn't spend much time queuing.
