“Grottes de Betharram”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

How beautiful nature is... it always give me a great feeling to see the wonders of nature, the beauty, it strength... the grottoes are special, never seen any like these... The guide gave us a great explanation... and at the end I was surprised by a collection of minerals and crystals.... the surprise was down into the caves we did a little boat trip and a train brought us back tot the surface... a special experience!!! I would like to do it again!!!

I have never seen such an amazing place! Beautifull and well guided. Very impressive. First part is a multi language walking tour, a very short boat ride and the last part in a train. Great tour for young and old!

“Fun and good for a wet day.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

We visited during our stay near Pau. It was a last minute choice and we were initially sceptical that we would end up being herded into a short and overpriced novelty but we were pleasantly surprised. For the 13 euros we had a tour of 1 h 20 with a jolly and interesting guide. We can understand french pretty well so had no issue with the main spiel but for those being given the English version were on the whole short-changed, being left behind and missing some of the jokes. The trip does involve quite a few steps (with handrails) and a fair amount of walking but is worth it as the setting is spectacular.

“Definitely go on a hot day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

Lovely grounds, well organized. Loved the silly french guide wearing a barret, he spoke ok english, and told the corniest jokes! Once inside the caves (a bit of a wait) it started cooling down. BRING A SWEATER!!! The caves are marvelous! Each area was well lit and very interesting as you wind down a path that goes deeper and deeper into the earth (1 km at deepest point) There is a little boat ride (1 minute?) but it is a nice diversion. At the end my toes started getting numb, and nose frozen...while taking a mini train ride, we were so anticipating the blast of heat as we came into the daylight and out of the caves...fabulous!
