    Beautiful caves. Charming boat ride in the negro river flowing inside, real peculiarity of these caves that perhaps, at some points, affected by the passage of man. We chose the grand tour, the baby on his first visit to a cave he had a blast. Recommended.

    True spectacle of nature. Friendly and helpful staff. About 1 hour and 40 minute tour. Striking down the stretch by boat. By lovely

    Very impressive and unique caves due to the river flowing within navigable. I dare not compare them to other caves, fine for other specialties but I recommend the visit to find out what nature was spectacular even in Perth. Some advice: book a tour by asking about the turnout (when the group comes complete with 30 people, the last of the row does not hear anything, of course!), bring a light jacket, enjoy the picnic area and dining outside, the route is feasible with the stroller (and disabled) but there are still areas with steps. Guide and staff friendly and helpful.

  • Cool place. Don't go it you don't like close in spaces
  • Very good and interesting and impressive, but would have been better with some English information
  • The best
  • Very nice place and suggestive, I visit it all the years when I switch to Abiola and, during the summer, the shows that organize inside are very interesting and very beautiful artistically. During spring there is risk of encountering students while summer people (but not too much). The visit more beautiful I made it to March where it was just me, my wife and another relative with the Guide ... Overall is very well organized and the guides are very prepared!

  • Nothing to brag about. Few concretions, plenty of rock and an especially obnoxious lighting to more colors that made Zoot the cave itself. The boat ride is short and we see little.
