Not sure why we were put in one boat with two adults and two teenagers, but because of that the boat trip was quite inconvenient (the boats are rather unstable and difficult to steer through the narrow caves).

First of all the signs to get to the caves are limited to really small arrow signs with pictures of paddle boat so you really have to be alert to get there. The tour is in Hungarian language so it's really not for people not speaking Hungarian. With watching the movie at the beginning and the paddling the whole visit... More

It was a very interesting experience to paddle a boat in a cave. It started with an exhibition with 3D glass which was in Hungarian but there were tables with English translation so it was ok. Then a movie followed also in Hungarian ( I think we were only non Hungarian speaking visitors there) and then we moved to the... More

We visited the lake cave on 8/31/16 about 3:30pm. We got our tickets immediately and was sent to walk through the exhibition with a pair of 3D glasses. There is an additional fee to get headphone audio in English but we didnt need it. The exhibits have English translation. There is a movie to watch and since we were the... More

It was extremely interesting if you like caving. The rafting lasts for 5 maybe 10 minutes. You have to paddle yourself but boats are made to not topple so don't be scared (I was terrified cause I never paddled and I handled it somehow). Views are amazing but it is short trip after all. You don't have to prepare yourself... More

A total waste of time, expecting to see something of wonder, was hugely disappointed. Despite making the 'guide' (questionable) aware we were English we were excluded from any of his commentary, as his English was virtually non existent. and to top it off with a 3D video completely in Hungarian left us wondering why we were there. Then taken down... More

An underground lake in a cave system that can be explored in a boat - what else can I say? Arrive early to avoid long queuing.

We didn't go inside because the queue was enormous (on Thursday morning) and not moving at all. Another problem - you can't get enough change to pay for parking, actually you don't even know how long to pay for. I believe it's an amazing place but I don't think it's worth queueing for hours, maybe next time...

We had to wait about two hours to enter. Inside we followed a guide for a tour in the museum. The guide mostly spoked hungarian. Written information on english though. Down in the cave we entered a small boat and had a little trip by our own in the cave. Its not the biggest cave, but its beautiful. Price ok.

Loved visiting the renovated Lake Cave visitor center with my Dad after his 1st visit 40years ago. The air in the cave is crystal clear and the experience of the little boats in the cave is unique. As a guest from the nearby Hunguest Hotel I had priority entry ticket which meant I did not have to stay in the... More
