Fabulous tour but there was a reference made to it being a "bit dark in places". Nothing prepared this claustrophobe for virtually all of the tour being by paraffin lamp and at one point in complete blackout.

Great friendly tour through a network of man made caves; atmosphere, ghost stories and plenty of historical detail on our hour (plus!) walking tour! Great value. Dress warm, wear flat shoes.
