The kind of place to take the family visitors and intellectually curious, here mother nature is on display and anyone can read and understand the amazing caverns where mother nature is at its best. A must see experience.

I went on a tour on a Sunday in January. I had lived in the area for 30 years but never visited the caves. Wish I’d gone sooner as it was very informative and fun. I had no idea the caves covered such an expanse...More

I didn't realise how good this place was until I visited a cave in Malta. What an experience! Made better by a super guide whose enthusiasm for history (if you can call the 2nd World War history) made me want to find out more. There's...More

We visited the caves after reading up on them online. It’s reasonably priced, and quite informative if you like history. You get given a lamp to take round as it gets dark at points, and at one point you can take all the lamps away...More
