My family with two children (aged 8 and 10) loved this. The tour was in Greek, but our guide made a good effort to relate a lot of info in English (some of this was done on the return trip when the Greek tourists had moved ahead). The caves, stalactites, lakes etc were all very beautiful. Well worth doing. Even... More

The cave is great, beautiful and compact. Easy to visit (no stairs). Taking photos is prohibited even without flash. It kind of ruined our experience. We would really like to take few photos.

A nice place which is around 15 kilometers far from kalavryta. The road to the cave is charming and the cave itself is interesting.

One of the best caves I have ever been. The nature has been very generous in this terittory. It is unbelievable what you see inside especially if it was a rainy season. The human intervention is the best I have seen ever in Greek spileology.

The cave was really beautiful and despite we visited it on November, there was water in the three lakes (there are ten more lakes at the closed part of the cave). On the other hand, the guide was running, not giving us time to admire the cave and he seemed too bored to answer our questions. It’s a shame, especially... More

Entrance ticket is reasonable, waiting few minutes for a group of visitors to gather, then you start with the local guide (included). It takes around 30 min and it's really worth, it's safe even for the children.

Fantastic!! Nature has created a magnificent spectacle. Very well presented excellent english speaking guid. Even with temps in the high thirties you need a jumper in the cave it is cold but welcome in the heat. One of the highlights of our 6000 mile tour.
