Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An interesting and fun adventure, we enjoyed our private caving day visiting two local caves here in Wales.
Our guide was very experienced and knowledgeable and we were looked after from start to finish with good instruction and excellent equipment provided.

My friend and I had the BEST time in the caves today, we did the full day of caving with our brilliant guide Lisa after being super well taken of during the booking process by Marcus. Lisa is super knowledgeable, made sure we both felt safe and challenged and was sensitive to what we each felt comfortable with. We come out feeling super proud of ourselves and just having had so much fun. Would highly recommend to anyone. Thank you!

We had a great half day caving. Our instructor, Ollie, was excellent and struck a great balance between encouraging everyone to keep going and being sensitive to nervous cavers. Our two boys, 11 and 8, had a fantastic time. None of us dared the Drainpipe in Goatchurch Cavern though!

Excellent experience, Marcus returned phone calls and email enquiries promptly. Andy the instructor was informative and friendly, providing encouragement and paced the experience to all ages. Andy ensured everyone in the family had a really excellent experience and challenged us all . Highly recommend this company.

The full caving day is an amazing experience. Our instructor, Ollie, was very knowledgeable and willing to adjust to our physical level and desire to be challenged. The day starts with Goatchurch Cavern, which is a beginner's cave with plenty of fun for the more advanced caver as well. The afternoon trip is to Swildon’s hole, the longest cave in the Mendips and still under exploration.
I will have to do this again. I highly recommend a day of adventure with Learn to Cave.

Our second caving experience in the Mendips with Marcus. He's a great caving guide, and it's a pleasure to spend a day underground with him! We all felt safe in his capable hands. I highly recommend Learn to Cave.

AMAZING group trip with the instructors at Learn to Cave at Goat Church Cavern. We were given really helpful information beforehand and felt really well prepared for the trip. When we arrived the instructors were really friendly and fun and helped put everyone at ease.
They led us in three groups with different levels of mobility, health, age and confidence and everyone had an incredible time. My group had a fun and very interactive instructor who had so much knowledge about the cave.
We did so much more than we thought we would feel able to and really loved the caves! 100% recommend!
