The caves are the highlight of the area (with the train to Diakofto). It is safe for kids. The dstance is 500 m inside the Caves and the visit lasts 30-40 m. The guided tour is very good. There is also a cafe outside.Better to combine for ticket with Kalavryta pass if in the area. A must.

Great umderground cave with a lot of underground lakes and rivers. The price of entrance is around 5€. The staff is very polite and they explain everything about the cave. The tour is around 30 minutes. It's a pity that the photos are prohibited but is right not to shoot photos with flash because of the bats that they are... More

The tour was in Greek, but our guide made a good effort to relate a lot of info in English (some of this was done on the return trip when the Greek tourists had moved ahead). The caves, stalactites, lakes etc were all very beautiful. Well worth doing. Even... More

The cave is great, beautiful and compact. Easy to visit (no stairs). Taking photos is prohibited even without flash. It kind of ruined our experience. We would really like to take few photos.

A nice place which is around 15 kilometers far from kalavryta. The road to the cave is charming and the cave itself is interesting.

One of the best caves I have ever been. The nature has been very generous in this terittory. It is unbelievable what you see inside especially if it was a rainy season. The human intervention is the best I have seen ever in Greek spileology.

The cave was really beautiful and despite we visited it on November, there was water in the three lakes (there are ten more lakes at the closed part of the cave). On the other hand, the guide was running, not giving us time to admire the cave and he seemed too bored to answer our questions. It’s a shame, especially... More
