Must visit. You walk with tortoises. Learnt a lot from the guide.Grande caverne is included; one can see the caves from near and the path used is better especially for elderly people.

Nice place to visit. The guide was sympathetic and made the visit interesting. Lots of walking and the cavern is great to visit. However not recommended with babies. We had an awesome time there. Would also recommend the restaurant.
