    OK the guide (Benjamin) is fine. But for the rest it's pathetic! We thought to visit a real cave with a beautiful mega'tron etc... In fact it is a rest of cave collapsed without interest. I do not recommend! Especially considering the price! 6.90 euros!

    A ripoff! Fortunately, the guides are nice! At the end, it becomes trapped in the shop to entice visitors to buy a souvenir!

    On the road for the tour with beautiful helmets, a bit dangerous departure along the road. A person who we explain the history of the cave really very pleasant and Nice. Very disappointed at the end of the visit that this is so small... I expected a lot longer.

    It's a nice to do. Our children loved. The visit may seem short, but is very nice and sufficient for children. The guide knows very well the place and its history. On the practical side, it is not possible to come in a stroller or with crutches because access is sometimes very low and narrow. Provide sneakers as you walk sometimes in the water (there is a cave not a park)

    A good guide that drives fine, narrow passages not recommended for the claustrophobic... And the small rooms of the size of a dime where two... The negative point that removed 2 stars: imagine the room with 40 people... Suffocate in much too crowded, we market on... The guide forced to repeat 2 times so that everyone can enjoy the visit.

    Without the friendly guide, the visit could be completed in five minutes, we can't speak of a real cave, but rather a string of 3 tiny rooms through sources. The end in the shop is not of the most glorious. I would not recommend.
