    Their pub: "one of the 3 most beautiful caves of France"? For to have visited some, Clamouse, ladies, the madeleine... as well as several Aven, I was going to be difficult. It's true. In my humble opinion, it is actually really good in both by all of its concretions, in addition to the indispensable stalagmites and stalagtites, it is possible to observe and beautiful draperies, several superb drives among other things that I did not know "the Pearl"; but also by its length a little + 1 km under 40 to 50 m deep. We had a guide very interesting, friendly and humorous. And the smaller for children, the return is by train. They love. The parking lot is large and shady, very important in the Gard in the month of August. There is a snack bar and picnic areas shaded also. We had preferred this option. I recommend this tour by booking by phone no waiting

    We had a good day. We arrived in the morning to do the 2 hiking trails accessible free before the Sun not too hot. It was nice. Then peak picnic in well laid out with tables and shelter space. Then visit the cave we booked for 1:15. Guide friendly but annoyed by the large group and children number. People are disrespectful, because do not listen to his comment. 1-hour tour is done, a little to no race but very well. Then return by train. A counselor.

    Nice Cave but not really something for small children. Not too long tour which at set times. Well organized. The little train nothing afterwards, that is to the visitors from the top of the mountain a bit to bring down.

    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!
