Our tour guide Deb made for a very fun filled and interesting visit to the cave. It is by far the prettiest cave with fantastic stalactites and stalagmites and naturally occurring formations that resemble people and creatures. The suspended table is well worth seeing as I believe it is the only one in the world. Thanks Deb for a great... More

This is a must do for anyone who loves geological history, and for all who don't. The guides are well informed about the formation of the cave, and all the different types of features in the cave. This cave has something for everyone.

This cave is a wonderful place for a family visit. We followed clear signposts to find it, parked right near the impressive restaurant and gift shop and walked with our guide straight down the ramp and stairs into the cave(s) Well, actually it's a huge complex of multiple caves with a wide range of geologic features which were all well...

The caves worth visiting and OK for people who have mild claustrophobic fears The formations are close and skillfully brought to your attention Part... More
