Don´t trust them or their reservation-system. We send them an email about opening hours, and they replied within a few hours. We then replied their e-mail and made a reservation. When we arrived at the caves, the said we had no reservation. They claimed, they had not recied our email, and that is a lie. I think someone judst deleted... More

Three accompanied tours are available, we did the mid level which was a little challenging in place, but amazing fun scrambling through and under rock formations. ( only do level.1 if you suffer from any form of claustrophobia!) The guided tour is interesting and very informative,but these are not 'decorative' caves, it's more about the climbing and squeezing through small... More

Have done the basic tour before. This time we were disappointed with the English guide. Unfortunately she was very difficult to understand and we ended up missing half the tour as we simply could not understand her. Make sure you ask if the guide speaks the language you require well

Caving trips for all levels but we took the easiest which was challenging enough. Very friendly staff who were really encouraging. Afterwards? GREAT tapas and a welcome beer in the on site bar. No tourist prices here! Great value for money!

Wasn't sure what to expect, but all the family loved it (7yr old & 14yr old boys) normally it's quite hard finding activities that both boys enjoy, this ticked the box big time!! We did the basic route, had to wear hard hats with Miner's torches and there was a little bit of crawling and climbing, not too much, don't... More

Very interesting guide who spoke English, German and Spanish. This is my second visit. It requires some scrambling around and you will get your clothes dusty. Not suitable for people with mobility problems but if you can walk, clamber over rocks, duck low down, you will be fine. A good half day out.

We just went into the caves. We have 3 children of age 6 (twins) and 7. If your children like climb, this is really fun. It takes approximately 1 hour in the cave. And the guide is explaining in spanish ánd english. It is not cheap for a family (€15 for adult and €10,50 for children).

We did the 3h tour in a group of five people (friends/family) and it was amazing! We were provided with overcoats, helmets with a light and shoes to wear in the caves. The first visit was to a smaller cave followed by a rest and then the big cave system. We absolutely loved the raw nature of the visit -... More

Nice way to spend about an hour, be sure to wear good gripped shoes and trousers or shorts as there is a few parts of the caves where you have to crouch down low and go into tight places, I would say that if you are a larger person this may not be possible. The rocks can be quite slippery... More
