Surely one of the best cave visits on the the Vezere, and undoubtedly the biggest. Be prepared for some serious theatre as you walk through the virtual pitch black to a platform looking down over the cave and watch in wonder as a small metal...More

Brilliant trip, worth the white-road-rafting it took to get there... (it's quite a way from anywhere major). We booked online after reading the need to do so online. Made for a bit of a panic getting there on time but actually I think a) we...More

The enormous cave and all the features in it are amazing, and took our breath away. So why didn't I give five stars? Very simple. They have a rule that you cannot take photographs. Very frustrating. As others have said, the French speaking people get...More

This is a must see in the Dordogne area! The Gouffre de Proumeyssac is a cave consisting of a single large space, the crystal Cathedral. You can take the regular tour where you walk into the cave thru a new entrance dug in the rock...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...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...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...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....More
