Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The caves seem to have been closed for a while. The road leading upto is not maintained with evidence of land slides. Google maps incorrectly shows this as open.

We were told at the hotel that this Cave has been closed since more than two years, and despite the promises by the minister of Civilisation that staff will be employed, so far the cave remains closed. Visitors do not in advance know that it is closed, they go there and realise that the cave is closed.. The minister seems not to care less..

I was very very very disappointed when I was about to get there and knew by surprise that the cave is under construction !
Seriously like now? It was my top place to go and visit in there, but now I'm back to Athens with anger and disappointment..

I had not previewed the reviews on Trip Advisor so had not realised that the Cave is closed so when we turned up earlier today (0900) we found the gate locked and a notice in Greek only. We had difficulty turning the car around on the narrow road & hill but at the visitor centre found another notice on the road sign saying the cave was closed for safety reasons with no indication of a date for re-opening.

The cave is closed for technical reasons and no one knows when it will be reopened again, but the information center is still open. It was nice to learn about the findings from the cave.

We were very disappointed that the Theopetra cave was closed due to technical problems. (kind of ironic??) However we did visit the museum. It is very small and not even signed; we just happened to ask for it at the right place. There was NO admission and the people would not even take a donation! The museum was very small but well done with good explanations for the exhibits, It was mind blowing to realize that this cave housed people from 130,000 years ago! Hopefully the cave will be opened again soon.

There is a sign in paper in Greek at the bottom of the hill that we think says its closed. We got to the top where its difficult to turn round and then looked online and seems to have been closed since end of June for safety reasons? Can anyone expand?

It is very special to look at things which up to 130'ooo years old!
One can hardly believe it. Not understanding that much about history nor about archeology both of us were still very thrilled to the age of the item we were seeing

This is an extremely interesting cave to see--- the history is amazing and well worth listening to. To see the footprints of a child from thousands of years ago is very thoughtful--- don't forget to visit the museum of the cave at the bottom of the mountain
