We visited as a family of four with 3yo and 7yo children and took a self-guided tour having followed the explanation in French at reception (she would have given it again in English but we declined). The first large cavern had a short animation explaining how the rocks were formed and the caves then excavated for building materials. It was a really charming and beautifully produced animation - which could hold its own as a short film. It held the kids' attention too. Being projected onto the contours of the cave made it very special. The rest of the cave system had a similar feel - filled with ingenious sculptures lit with fibre-optics, and more beautiful animations - all related directly to the history of the caves from dinosaurs to grueling 19th Century stone-cutting. The tour took 60mins at a slow stroll, and we had a picnic under a tree outside afterwards. A great way to spend an morning, or tie-in with a trip to the brilliant Doue Zoo.
