Our Guide George was amazing. He told us interesting stories and history about this man mad cave. The best part of the tour was experiencing complete darkness. Worth visiting if you are in the area

We went on the the tour by scooter (step), which is great because you get to see a lot more of the caves than you do by walking. The tour was interesting and our guide Paul was very knowledgeable and funny, yet it lacked something for me. Partly because the caves are man-made (although very impressive), partly because the drawings... More

My wife and I visited the caves in early November. Our guide was knowledgeable, experienced, funny, and professional. We only were able to explore a small portion of the caves, but they are amazing. You can still see tooling marks in the stone... and lots of old (and some not so old) writings on the walls. Absolutely worth checking out!

Well worth a visit. The history is fascinating. Massive inside so no problems with access or claustrophobia. Combined with a tour of the fort it is a great way of spending a few hours. The view from the cafe over the city is great.

The caves have an interesting history, told well by the guide, who also knew how to engage children. So it’s nice for children as well, even young ones. The history ranges from Mosasaur finds to the Second World War. It’s an easy walk and one can only have respect for the way the caves were man-made. The caves are set... More

My wife, son(5 yrs) and I purchased the cave tour online. The tour is provided in both Dutch and English. Our tour was done in English and had 12 people in it. The tour length was about an hour and we traveled approximately 1Km inside the tunnels. The temperature inside the tunnels is always 11C. So bring warm clothes. We... More

The caves are actually far more interesting than I expected. From Jews escaping persecution in WW2 to French Explosive fu*k ups, to 80s parties, dinosaur stories to 17th Century graffiti - this place has a lot to see. Also Dominic with a K has a great knowledge of the tunnels and a passion for what he does. Also its worth... More
