  • Very beautiful cave, immense, the guides are friendly and they are not merely to recite a text. In addition it goes up to the entrance of the cave on a small train and the view is magnificent.

  • A very nice and giant cave, careful not to be claustrophobic, because this is not indicated at the entrance and there is very low and very narrow passages where he almost need market 4-legged and has passages contrast with very high vacuum under the feet so pay attention to people with Vertigo also

  • We came a day after calling the day before to ensure hours of visits (the latter also sent us on their facebook page as unable to give us a response). Arrived at checkout we ask the tour from 02:30 and there, surprise, a group of 13/15 people who book a visit of an hour and a half (certainly not after our call of the night before), we were told that no other visits that the latter won't be insured in the afternoon. In this case, we had two choices, either be added to the Group and make a small visit, either return the next day (last day of the season) for a more complete tour from 02:30 as we wanted. We chose to turn back and return the next day (Luckily we came not from a distance, which was certainly not the case of the twenty people behind us that was not notified either). DAY 2: back to the cave, so far no worries the visit from 02:30 well taking place, we take our tickets €12 and well of course being young and healthy we climb on foot (a thought for seniors forced to pay €2 / pers extra for up and down in a small train and still do the last 100 / 150 m walk) (another bracket (when comparing the price of this cave for example at the abyss of padirac well known and quoted them, pls do not allow to charge the elevator up and down)... In short, the visit happens, the cave is still worth a minimum the detour but still surprised, after 01 h 45, visit is already finished... Surprise Yes and no, because at 2 p.m. He was supposed to be two starts the visit of 02 h and 02 h 30 visit but once upstairs we are together in a single and same group for a single visit. We would have of the suspect in the scam. In addition, unable to take pictures in the cave, we left our e-mail address to receive the photos that we are still waiting... A bad experience that we will not renew.

  • I did the hike of 3 hours with a passionate guide! It is one of the rare have that I could visit a cave with the least possible development, visit the flashlight, in short a cave remained in its "juice" for the hiking part! Beware, this cave is not accessible to all, a good physical condition is required!

  • The cave is not accessible to all. We climb a path by train. Then we have to follow a path of approximately of 200 metres to reach the cave. The road is not safe for children or tourists who come to tong for example. The visit of an hour or one hour 30 does not to be dazzled.

  • A cave fantastic, huge, undoubtedly the most beautiful Cave of Midi Pyrenees and Ariège. Very good reception, good organization. Narcotic.

  • Poor in concretions and colors. Little lit (for obscure reasons) and above all too expensive €11 the short visit is €62 for 4 adults & 3 children all of this gives the impression of a greedy exploitation of too poor vein.
