  • My favorite part of the tour were the big map and the paints on the walls and the guide was really friendly and he also waits for everyone. A nice tour and I would do it again.

  • I visited sone years ago and it was great to come back. The tour is interesting! Bring a coat and a flashlight! I recommend combining the visit in the cave with a boat trip from Maastricht.
  • A nice adventure .. when you take the cruise trip from the centrum the ticket can include the cave tour as well which is about 1 hour .. nice guides .. a piece of history .. be prepared for a short upward trek (around 5-10 mins) to get to the starting point. The series of tunnels/caves are really big and have a high ceiling so not claustrophobic and won't get you dusty. Air quality is also decent inside.
