We loved it. Very educational and the cave was awesome. Best part was when they turned the lights off and when we saw the glow worms. You have never seen true pitch black until you have been in a cave. I enjoyed the guide to...More

Our tour into the cave was amazing. It was deep underground, and a little bit of heaven for the incredible glow worms we were able to see. The whole family loved this experience. Wrap up warm, wear good shoes, and you'll have the best time.

Great tour. Well controlled and a great guide for a truly unique and fascinating experience. Recommended for anyone not too claustrophobic, but with a love of geology.

We had planned on hiking to some falls this day but it was raining so the car was a good alternative. You buy your ticket at a visitor center then either walk or drive to the cave. It is pretty chilling in the cave so...More

Our guide (Dave) was calm - always good, in a cave - enthusiastic and knowledgeable. There were 31 people in our group but we were all able to hear and see the wonders in the depths of the cave. The glow worms glowed; the cave...More

Remember it will be mid winter at the time you plan to visit and the caves are in the hills and so the weather likely to be cold. I suggest you go to the website of the caves to determine whether they will be open.
