This is a well organised attraction. I was worried we would have to queue but it was all straightforward and we were allocated a boat within 10 minutes of getting our tickets. The caves are fabulous, you spend part of your time walking, but mostly on boats which are propelled by the muscle power of your guide. Our guide spoke... More

The caves themselves are really good. The journey lasts over an hour with two changes of boat. Lots of interesting rock formations. However, above ground things are not so well organised. There is one cash desk as the woman has to record every booking on paper so the queue is very long. The service in the cafe is awful. We... More

I highly recommend this tour of the underground caves, they are stunning. You access the caves via a footpath where a guide meets you. Visitors are invited to board a boat and the guide pulls you through the caves on an underground river. The trip I went on lasted approximately 90 minutes. Unfortunately my guide did not speak English but... More

Despite a bit of a slow start to the tour (a coach trip turned up just after we'd paid and they were pushed through, much to our annoyance) it was a great hour or so. The caves are really incredible and we all found the hour long journey great. There are A LOT of steps involved if you go down... More

We turned up on Sunday at the reception area at around 12:30 to find the ticket office, and washroom facilities closed and locked. There was a visible sign inside informing potential customers that the next boat would be at 14:00. So we thought we'd go and have a drink / snack at the on site bar - this too was... More

I totally agree with most of what Musician Teddington has to say., except that our experience of the trip was slightly different. We were a party of 24, and we were told by our tour guide we had the choice of going down steps and up a ramp ... or down a ramp and up steps! Puzzling! However, all was... More

Being short is an advantage on this underground voyage in a sturdy aluminium boat! It's quiet and cool underground and a good activity on a very hot day. Not as many coloured lights illuminating the stalactites and stalagmites as I was expecting, but some awesome formations along the route, imaginatively named. The guide moves the boat along by grabbing on... More

This is a great place to take the kids. Imagine descending into the typical limestone cave but instead of having to walk from room to room being towed along on a 45-min long aluminum boat ride! The guide pulls the boat along a cable strung overhead pointing out formations and the cave's history and telling jokes while you sit back... More
