  • We chose the English tour of the North Caves. I took the tour two times, one last year and the other one, this year, but this time it was with a turn. We had the pleasure to have Ed as the guide...

  • This a unique experience and a must do in Maastricht. These caves are built to extract limestone in old ages. The tunnels extend for a vast area in the hill. The guide was very informative about the history about the place. We booked the English language tour. There were 16 people for the tour. Tour takes just over an hour and was very interesting. Ticket was 9.50 per person and was well worth it.
  • Very amazing experience. Loved the history behind the caves. I was super impressed to know the complexity behind the formation of caves. I will highly recommend to visit this place if you are around.
  • Thank you Ruud for the captivating tour full of historical insights and fun facts. It's definitely a must see for any visitor that is looking for a new experience ☺️
  • Very nice and informative tour. Very good for families,especially for rainy day! The guide was very clear and easy to follow
  • Amazing experience. Very interesting, lots of history, wonderful guide (thanks Martha). Should definitely give it a visit, if not only for the view possible from the restaurant.
