Rainy public holiday so went underground. Great tour that starts on the hour. Guide spoke perfect English. Accessible by public transport. Number 29 bus within a 100m. 40 minute tour very informative. Didn't do the other cave where you have to crawl through.

A rather short (20 minutes one way, 300 meters) but very fun tour. The guide was great and catered for both Hungarians and foreigners (in english). Would recommend if you have not been caving before. Very accessible to everyone as well.

Fun cave with paved walk ways. We had 9 kids ages 16-2 and they did fine. Lots of cave popcorn but no bacon. I got the combo ticket for my older boys to do the other cave another day. I thought the price was ok....More

Well, i have to admit that one reason to visit the cave was the fact that it was 36 degrees celsius on the outside and the travel guide promised 12 degrees in the cave ;) So in any case the warning that you should wear...More

Not sure why this experience is not rated higher. The cave tour was spoken in English and the guide, a cave enthusiast, was terrific. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and her personalized attention.

Not here for sure ... but I recollect there were other caves around Budapest which gives you a more authentic caving experience - not sure if you can actually dig for minerals there though! Check out PÁLVÖLGYI CAVES
