We were lucky with the weather. The cable cars were very enjoyable for the whole family providing great views. Both cave tours were enjoyable. Staff were polite, friendly and knowledgeable. I’ll be coming back when my youngest is older and can walk.

The view from the top was amazing. Definitely worth bringing your family, or your wife or girlfriend here. It wasn’t too busy when we went on the Saturday lunch time. At least once, come and visit, support the local :)
