Have done the basic tour before. This time we were disappointed with the English guide. Unfortunately she was very difficult to understand and we ended up missing half the tour as we simply could not understand her. Make sure you ask if the guide speaks...More

Caving trips for all levels but we took the easiest which was challenging enough. Very friendly staff who were really encouraging. Afterwards? GREAT tapas and a welcome beer in the on site bar. No tourist prices here! Great value for money!

Nice way to spend about an hour, be sure to wear good gripped shoes and trousers or shorts as there is a few parts of the caves where you have to crouch down low and go into tight places, I would say that if you...More

We visited the caves while on holiday, very average, I wouldn't recommend it. I didn't think it was worth the money. The plus side is the guide could speak English so she was explaining in Spanish to the group then translating in English. You need...More
