Was good to see this grotto. Would have been better with more information in english. They do give you a written history in english which is helpful. Was worth a visit and glad I have seen it.

On a hot day a visit to these caves was a charming diversion. Quiet reception area that doubles as a cafe area while you wait for your tour, which is about 45 minutes long and our guide spoke really good English. Interesting geology, fairly unique...More

The tour in the Grottes takes approximately 40 minutes. For us the guide made all the difference. The visit does not require any special moves (no crawling in narrow spaces or walking through water etc.). It is a very accessible tour, suitable for young children....More

Must go especially for kids. Superb place to understand the cave formation, the tour guide was really good!

The Grottes de Thouzon are part of a larger grouping of caves in the region, but the cave tour here is informative and just long enough. It offered a nice reprieve from the summer heat (we visited in July). The tour (about $10 US per...More

We visited these caves while we were staying in Orange. They are quite small, the path inside being only about 340m long. There is however a guided tour and the girl taking ours was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. It is only about 13 degrees in...More

Caves are always fun, and especially on a very hot day! We were lucky enough to have a guide just for the two of us, which was much nicer than a tour in a big group. The cave itself is not huge, but has many...More

We found this site easily. It's not very touristy, but has a good sized carpark and cafe/ shop and loos. There is a fee to visit the Grottes and we had a very good guide who was bi-lingual. If possible, get the guided tour, as...More
