We had a nice trip to the canyon. We were expecting the entrance fee to the cave to be included in the tour price but it is an extra 8 euros. I would add some stops or coffee breaks during the tour. Over all the tour is mor about connecting with nature and serene and not much about the cave.

The boat ride is 20 minutes each way.The climb to the cave is arduous.I would advise any over 60s to wait in the boat.The cave is a pleasant experience partially lit in coloured lights.The guide was pleasant and informative about Neolithic and Macedonian history.

It was the perfect trip. We left from the citadel and our guide gave us an idea of what to expect, some recommendations and some historical facts. He showed us the monasteries and told us some great stories about them. Be advised to bring cash so you can pay for the boat ride or any other activity.
