The presentation here was probably the best out of all the caves we visited. You might say a cave is a cave but the information displayed above ground as to what is below was, in my opinion, better than the other caves in the area.

Very very rude staff, 3 years old son touched to cave by mistake when he lost his balance, but staff told us to leave as he touched their property (it was little mistake). Very rude service. Not welcoming. And little cave, not worth to visit.

After all the advertising, and considering the entry fees charged, we were all pretty excited to experience the cave. Very disappointed. Caves are dry caves, so basically just two limestone caverns, one with water in the bottom. The caves are part of a series of...More

Yes a five year old will be fine as long as you hold their hand on the steps that are deep.
