  • We had the most amazing cave tour here by Rich who was just awesome. He was knowledgeable, friendly and a funny which helped us relax into the tour as it went on. Could not recommend more highly and is definitely worth every single cent.
  • Great tour smaller groups amazing cave formations and glowworms great guides
  • Great fun. The guides are awesome characters and both careful and knowledgeable at the sane time. Good fun.
  • We were advised when we booked our accommodation that we should book the last tour of the day. I give you the same advice. The tour was brilliant. We were lucky enough to have Ross as our tour guide. He actually developed the cave! We had a lot of laughs and learnt a bit too. Very special tour.
