Both and adults enjoyed the tour. The caves are well managed and the guides are knowledgable. My kids especially loved the fairy land cave. Well worth a visit.

Fun and eye opening experience, really not too much walking involved either. The whole place is beautiful and the guides are well informed and explain the history of the caves in a way that's easily understandable for anyone. Do not wear your best clothing and shoes it will get dirty. Plakkies are also not advisable as the caves are slippery, wet, somewhat dark, and muddy majority of the time I would think. Overall an experience and outing I would highly recommend to anyone.
It was a lovely experience. We unfortunately went when it was rainy and there was a lot of mud and water puddles which made it rather messy and hard to maneuver here and there. All in all a wonderful experience and the guide was excellent and informative. There is also a wonderful view from the restaurant deck.
