What an amazing sight. We did the walking tour and saw the Cage being lowered. Looked amazing. Wish we had done that, but probably not a good idea with a small baby. The... read more

The cave is, without question, magnificent. Its rock and crystal formations are spectacular, the air has that deliciously cold fresh cave feel, and the sound of the dripping water -- an ever-present reminder that nature hasn't finished, that this is only a work in progress -- plinks and plonks with delightful little echoes. These features have been present in this... More

Really impressive and beautiful cave. Our party had all rented headsets and the commentary that I did hear was extremely interesting but my experience was spoilt by faulty headset that only worked intermittently. Another person in our party also had a faulty headset. I complained about the headset and was just given my 1 euro back - hardly the point.... More

This was an excellent visit for a wet and gloomy day outside. We thought we may as well go for the whole experience - descend into the cave in the nacelle (a small cage, which would be tight for its 11 maximum occupants!), although you can walk down for about 9 euros less. The nacelle gives you a good view... More

What an amazing sight. We did the walking tour and saw the Cage being lowered. Looked amazing. Wish we had done that, but probably not a good idea with a small baby. The tour was in French, however the tour guide did speak English. For an extra €0.90 you can get an audio tour which was brilliant. Our 8 and... More

Great day out (11 year old and 8 year old). Well-run, informative stalactite/stalagmite chamber experience, and - with an imaginative but short son-et-lumiere - quite-spectacular. Digital audio guide definitely worth the Euro 0.9 extra. There was even a salle picque nique, which seemed eminently fair. Plus bits and pieces of a playground too, to keep younger kids occupied for a... More

What a fantastic place to visit. We visited with our two boys (6 & 9), and all of us were impressed. A magnificent natural wonder and a very well run attraction. Well priced and the audio tour was excellent and very informative. Some areas could be difficult to get through if you have back or mobility problems but this is... More

After having picked up around a dozen leaflets about various caves local to our campsite we chose this due to proximity and nothing else - it was a very good choice. We paid for the walking tour which was reasonably priced - we had to wait only 10 minutes for our allocated start time. We paid 90c for the translation... More

There are a number of such locations to visit in this are. We picked this one by chance. On arrival you see two prices. One for a walking visit, one using the lift. If you are of a weak disposition, do not take the latter!. You will descend in an open sided lift suspended in mid air on cables. Not... More

I'm glad we visited. I'm quite claustrophobic but found it fine. Wish we had got the English translator. You go in a group and have a French guide. Each stop the guide talked for some time. It would have been far more interesting especially for the kids if we'd had the headset. It is spectacular. We had to wait 40... More

We have spent one morning In here. You can watch 4 special structures made by nature in 65.000.000 years. Outside there is a nice play ground area for children.
