A vast abundance of stalactites and stalagmites to see in a vast cathedral of caves. Fun trip through caves on a train which gives you lots of information and time to get out and take photographs during the journey. Try to ensure that you see the video beforehand as it all makes much more sense then!

Really good trip. Very informative & knowledgeable guide. Good value for money. Would definitely recommend it. We drove there by ourselves and just paid when we got there. Far better value than doing a planned trip.

Worth a visit if the weathers not to good. Some of it is quite impressive. I feel we have better more natural caves in the UK.

Was surprised to find a vast underground system of caves. The visitor center does a good job of providing a historical perspective. Then board electric trams heading through the cave system. Be prepared for water dropping from the ceiling. Very much worth a visit.

The cave itself is good but I prefer caves in a more natural state and the changes made to accommodate the train for me spoiled it. Having said that it's accessible to all and the guide is informative.

Going against other reviews, I could not either recommend or return to this attraction. The operation is very slick and must be an incredible money making machine. Although to be fair the cost of the operation cannot be cheap in either its establishment costs or ongoing maintenance. You are given a short video, then put on the mini trains for... More

This attraction was good value for money and well run. Reason for review is to publically and specifically mention our guide Hyacinth who was so enthusiatic and knowledgeable you can really tell she is passionate about these caves and considering she does this day in day out so personable, thank you.
