We all were fascinated by the beauty and history of this underground wonderland. Our tour guide, Ricki, did a great job recounting the stories of the past. Would have loved to have seen the other caves but time was not on our side this trip.

The caves are well worth a visit. You need to wear walking shoes and be prepared for some safe climbing up and down steps. I’m not young and have a dicky knee but manage the hour long tour with just a bit of puffing and...More

Not suitable if unsteady on feet due to steps although there is handrails. No seating. Tour takes 55 mins I think. I would speak to staff first.
