Really enjoyed the tour. Pleased we arrived early and went on the first visit of the day. The staff were very friendly, communicative and informative about all aspects of the mine past and present. The presence of art as an exhibition was unexpected. The atmosphere and lighting excellent. We did it as a birthday outing and it was a great start to the day, despite a storm and rain above, the mine was comfortable and pleasant. Would recommend it, Thank you!

Lovely collection point with a great tour guide which explains things along the way. Journey there was great with stunning views of many cliffs and caves on a speed boat with a side attraction of some dolphins. Strongly recommend.

a very informative and interesting tour. Alex was a great guide, with a nice balance of commentary between triva and fact.

Really nice course, well maintained and challenging. Can definitely be recommended.

The meeting point was actually the reception not where the app tells you
