    A rather short (20 minutes one way, 300 meters) but very fun tour. The guide was great and catered for both Hungarians and foreigners (in english). Would recommend if you have not been caving before. ...  more »

    I find the visit of a cave is simply part of the Budapest residence and that is why we opted for the Szemlö Cave. Individually and alone it is not possible through the cave system to go. Only hourly tours (Hungarian/English) are possible and we had to take some latency into account. It's a pity that it was not possible to buy drinks and snacks while waiting. The tour itself was very interesting and you get that cool cave system explained in detail 12 degrees. I should like to mention that the cave just as for children is very interesting. Our daughter (10 years) was fascinated. By the way, parking did not exist unfortunately and you have to look whether you get one on the street in front of one of the numerous plots (for the person travelling with their own car). A recommended and if there are still drinks and snacks from me I give you full marks.

    An interesting visit, nice that showcases the beauty of the basement. It's perfect for novices like me: visit is easy, explanations (in English) clear and the tour lasting about 45 minutes. The more experienced cavers may find their happiness elsewhere.

    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.

    Great guides. Well developed path ways and worth a visit for only 1300 entrance.

    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.

    Good program on too hot or bad weather days. The cave is beautiful. The guided tour automatically in English when needed.
