Good tour. Good stories associated with the caves too. Professional guide that was very helpful. Wouldn't say that elderly or physically challenged people should attempt as there are places where you're required to just about crawl.
We had a fabulous experience. The facility is world class. The information is clear and accurate. The trip down into the caves was an exhilarating experience for our kids. The boat ride was a big surprise as we did not know about it. It's such a great family outing and must be visited at least once.also I was quite far along pregnant, the cave is quite accessable.
