Prototype cave full of lakes at different levels. You can only see five hundred meters but worth it. It's better for you to visit in the early spring when snows melt and lakes are full of water. It's very impressive that season.

The caves are truly spectacular - better than any others I have visited. Unfortunately, the 'guide' oozed boredom from every fibre of her being. Very little information was offered and questions were met with, at best, cursory (indeed curt) responses. I heard another guide with...More

Amazing cave with fantastic limestone formation, curtains, staligmites/ tites etc.( and bats!) We went in September only us, and one other Russian couple. Guide could speak a little English but only to script. We paid as part of the 'City Pass' to Kalavytra so good...More

Fabulous stalactite formations like nothing I've ever seen before. Yes it's expensive but in my opinion worth it. Our young guide Chris was very well informed and spoke excellent English. Was a little sceptical about visiting after reading some negative reviews but so glad we...More
