“Fab caves”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

We visited the caves during a recent trip to Mallorca, there were seven in our group ranging from grandparents, a 17 year old and a 6 and 3 year old, so the whole range really.
The guided tour was interesting and our guide was friendly and seemed to enjoy her job. The light show was great, a lot less kitch then the boat trip at the caves of drach further down the coast.
Not the cheapest excursion but really enjoyable and a great opportunity to visit beautiful caves.

“Trip to the underworld”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Great caves connected by all kinds of tunnels and illuminated by humans. Definitely a fun day trip to take if you are in the area of Capdepera on the island of Mallorca. Rather large compared to other caves found everywhere on spanish, greek and italian islands and well organized in terms of tours, safety and maintenance, not cheap, but good value for what you will see. The tour guides are knowledgable and multilingual. The combination makes for a very interesting experience. However, if you suffer from asthma, have problem with blood pressure, diabetes, have weak knees or other health related conditions you may want to stay away from the caves. This is definitely not the advice by a medical doctor, but just common sense - you will be deep in the caves and it's hard to breathe there, no elevators either, so if you go down, it'll take them a while to get you out of there.

“Mesmerising ”
Reviewed 2 November 2013 via mobile

Truly staggering cave system with some beautiful stalagmite and stalactite formations. The tour guide was excellent and was truly proud of his job.

Our kids aged 4, 5 and 8 loved it as much as we did, and under 8's are free

Highly recommended

“Very pretty”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

The caves are very beautiful but I think that the ticket was a bit too expensive, 13-14 euros is quite a bit. They are easy to get to either by bus (including from local towns) or walking from Canyamel town center.
