  • Not sure why this experience is not rated higher. The cave tour was spoken in English and the guide, a cave enthusiast, was terrific. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and her personalized attention.  more »

  • Entry fee is currently 1300ft for an adult. The cave has mostly been developed, so the walk is very easy and flat. You'll probably feel drops of water landing on your head from time to time. There are 'cauliflower' formations everywhere. Try to avoid entering with a large group of school kids.
  • The cave is 2 km long itself but the tour shows only a small part. The tour guide was knowledgeable and able to present the cave in both Hungarian and English. There is a small interactive section at the entrance and a projection room suitable for children and adults alike. Throughout the year the cave holds events such as weddings, children's events and wall climbing.
  • Beautiful cave to visit, the guide talks Hungarian on the way there and talks English on the way back so everybody can understand. There is also a small exhibition near the entrance area, also possibility to sit and a unisex bathroom.
  • Short excursion - for the small ones are more than enough. Worth buying combined ticket for Palvolgyi cave also (not recommend for small kids).
  • Good program on too hot or bad weather days. The cave is beautiful. The guided tour automatically in English when needed.
