Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and used easy to understand language to explain the different formations. The cave was beautifully lit and the light show at the end was a highlight.

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.
