The small boat tours of the cave system are very cool. Make sure you get an audio translator. We didn't know about them until after the tour and our boatman only spoke Greek, so we missed a lot.

We've visited caves but this one is quite impressive as it's huge (+/- 1.2km). The place itself it's worth a visit, my teens loved it. However, we had no explanation nor info leaflets. Nothing. The guy on the boat spoke no English nor any other...More

This was a highlight of our Greece trip. We were mesmerized by the whole experience. If possible, try to get the front seat on the boat but watch your head :)

Although I have seen a lot of caves I found the Diros cave very impressive. The boat trip was very pleasant. The lights inside the cave were excellently set so the magnificent shapes of stalagmites and stalactites made a fantastic scenic!.

The boat trip through the caves is to me one of the most impressive natural monuments I've seen. Entrance fee was 13 Europe p.p. I found it worth it. In small boat you're trough 1.2 km of caves and tunnels. Very impressive.

I did like the cave. First with the boat and then a short walk back. It would be nice if the Guide could speak english.
