Such an educational visit. We definitely learned a lot. It is a great attraction for everyone. We were led through the caves and allowed to take pictures at certain points.

It's really a beautiful place. A lot of stairs to climb up and some can be steep and times there is a hand rail to hold on to. Can be hot inside but they do have fans throughout the cave, would recommend this place

We had a fun tour of the caves, with a local guide. It was informative and entertaining. We did not know that slaves hid out in the caves when they ran away from the plantation.

We went here with a bus tour. What a disappointment. It seems that all this place wanted to do is slam people into the cave like sardines. We had to wait several times along the guided path in the cave as we caught up with...More

Far to expensive. Just pay at the location itself. About $10-12. Enjoy. Definitely worth seeing

I completely understand, I can be claustrophobic at times as well. I really enjoyed the caves and didn't feel claustrophobic inside at all until they switched the lights off. I'm sure you could ask them not to, but I didn't... More

Stairs are a bit narrow but not too difficult to climb. When I went with my wife, the group that came with us had a bunch of elderly people and they were able to all make it. The cave tour takes about 25 minutes from what I... More
