Went on the evening session. Quite exciting walking through the forest at night! Great first time caving as an adult. Fantastic experience and will definitely be doing it again! Marcus knows his stuff and let's you explore yourself, while making sure you are not out of your depth. Some bits were definitely challenging, but that just made the whole experience... More

We did the evening caving session as a couple, heading into a pitch black cave with no sunlight was definitely sureal. Marcus made the session challenging while keeping us safe and letting us explore the cave ourself. You could instantly tell he was highly expirence and his knowledge kept us intrigued. Highly recommend!

We took a group of guys on a caving trip down Swildon's hole as part of a stag do. Despite thinking we were going to make both sumps, it turned out to be rather more challenging than expected! Neil was a great instructor; clocked everyone's ability before we had gone ten yards and tailored the trip to suit. Would recommend... More

Great experience for all of the family! I wanted to do something different for my birthday this year; a shared, new experience. Marcus from learn to cave was very quick to respond and sort out my short notice booking. Our guide Andy was friendly, kept the kids engaged (ages 5 to 9) and made it an overall fantastic experience. I... More

My friend and I went caving with Marcus today, and had a fab time. Marcus is lovely, and makes you feel very safe, but challenged. The level of difficulty can be tailored around your experience and bravery. The cave (Swildon's Hole) was exciting, and provided some abseiling opportunities, and lots of scrambling! I would definitely recommend!

10 out of 10!!! ....I could be selfishly reluctant to write a review on account that I would want to book Marcus again all for myself! ;) But no, credit where credit is due - He's an absolute gem; thoroughly lovely guy and the most experienced and trusted cave guide I could ever have hoped for. Definitely will be going... More

I arranged a day of caving with Marcus for my brother's stag. Everyone complimented the experience afterwards. He tailored our experience to make it challenging whilst making sure we were aware of the risks at all time; it is an adventure sport after all. Most importantly it was great fun. I thoroughly recommend Learn to Cave.

Had an excellent time caving with Marcus! He is an extremely experienced guide and I felt that he gave us enough challenging moments to make sure that we had achieved something while making sure we weren't out of our depth (pun intended). He's also extremely funny and upbeat which helps when you're descending into the Earth!

It was my first time caving and the experience was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone Marcus was a brilliant guide with exceptional knowledge of the caves and at no point did I feel unsafe. I will definitely be doing it again.
