  • A truly great experience! The caves are the most spectacular we’ve ever seen. The deeper you descend, the more awesome it gets. Tour guide David is knowledgeable as well as entertaining.  more »
  • Stupendously, jaw-droppingly, gob-smackingly amazing! English tour was perfect, really informative. Such amazing calcite formations that have be seen to be believed. I want to go back!  more »
  • Totally fascinating although would be worth getting headphones as the guide is only in French. Luckily we had a brilliant translator in the group! Archery and visiting the hole was fab. Cafe and shop were worth a visit too.
  • Beautiful cave which you can reach by descending over no less than 700 steps! Inside a magic and ancient world awaits you where stalagmites grow over thousands of years in the immense chambers formed by the river Ceze. At the end of the tour. (that takes about an hour) there's a musical surprise for you in last chamber...
