  • We were on Monday morning, at the beginning of October, in the cave. We servants the only and were given a private tour. That is another advantage of the low season. You can further we see that they decorated are on quite a lot of visitors per day. Normally go there 50 people in a group. They start every 15 minutes. It is over a kilometre walk and it is made so that most staircases go down. To run good and spacious. This is, I think, the largest and most extensive cave that I have seen. Nice explanation and get some special things like blind shrimp and a B&B under the ground. At the end you go with a little train back again. All in all, highly recommended!!

  • One of the nicest places to see stalactites etc. (mentioned by France press) . People speak French, English and German at the cash register. Tour is in English or French. The 1h tour is very nice and should be definitely done if you are interested. The outside is not so big and diverse. But she car parc and shop is nice.
  • Nice cave! You are allowed to make pictures as long as this is without flash! It is just bad the guide doesn't speak English. This is the 21st century, come on. -2 star for non English guide. The leaflet in your native language is a bit boring to read.
  • One hour underground with good shop and café/ restaurant. Our guide gave information in both French and English. 40 minutes interpretation trail, partially accessible to baby buggies worth following. Well worth visiting, remember to download the voucher for an entry reduction!
  • Lots of nice cave formations. Train for transportation.. not for kids.
  • Good cave well worth a visit
