Lovely cave, although the boat trip around it is relatively short. The boatmen are happy to take photographs, and are knowledgeable about the cave's history. Queues can be lengthy, although we timed it about right, going in the mid afternoon. Recommended.

Beautiful site, a must see. Lines were short because it was off-peak. The locals informed me that the lines can get very long in the summer.

For the price paid for a short boat ride, I’m scoring this low. Some of the photos I took were amazing, but that’s about it. The oarsman had a sense of humour too.

There's a slope down to the boats and you'll need to hold them tight getting on and off the boat, but yes I'd say the experience is toddler friendly.
