It was an amazing experience though a bit tiring. There is a part of the cave that you visit on a boat and another one which are steps up and then down. Excellent guides explaining everything in different languages. Just breath taking!

The geological formations in the cave were very dramatiic and e well illuminated. Our only regret was no commentary in English. Otherwise good value
