  • Rating: 4 “The caves were stunning, amazing.”

    Reviewed by Harriet from Handcross, United Kingdom on October 28th, 2012 So glad we made it to the caves before they shut for the winter. The stalagtites and stalagmites were amazing and so beautiful when the guide lit them with the torches we carried. The walk up to them was a killer even with a cable car ride in the middle! Legs still haven't recovered! Well worth a visit.

  • Rating: 4 “Definitely recommended”

    Reviewed by Sabine from Georgensgmünd, Germany on May 22nd, 2012 The tour guide was very friendly and took care of the travelers very well. The bus driver was also very careful when driving. I'm a very nervous traveler, and even I didn't have any worries during the ride. Thank you. It was a beautiful excursion.
