    Amazing and fun tour guide
    Gilbert was an amazing and funny tour guide. His tour was very interesting, and he kept everyones attention. Even tho the tour was almost two hours, it didn't feel like that. The highlight of the experience was walking through a part of the tunnels in the dark.

    Frank was the best!
    Frank was amazing! I am from Texas with my Dutch family and it was a fantastic trip! Frank stopped and explained things beautifully from the history of the stone to the ways it was used in war. Frank if you’re reading this, thanks for answering my questions about the axels on the wheels creating the markings and keep making everyone’s journey special!

    Great tour by Arno
    We had a great tour by Arno. He had loads of historical facts and was great at telling them. We could ask questions and he asked us questions to test our knowledge as well. The “darkness” experience was also cool where we couldn’t see a thing. His enthusiasm was great!

    Interesting
    Interesting tour. Knowledgable and friendly guide. This tour is actually not suited for small children, a good part of the tour is talking, that is not for children. Defenately not for those who don't understand english. Ofcourse they would get bored and ruin the tour for the rest a little bit. That was too bad, the tour itself was interesting. Probably not a good idea to let children carry the torches either.

    There are 2 North Cave tours- only one includes the vault...
    Arriving by train, its a 30-minute, 1.7 mile walk to the fort and cave ticket office. Its worth it since its a lovely town with plenty to see along the way. just plan for it. Buy a package deal along with tour of the fort. Make sure you know which cave tour you are getting. The one with the Vault is 1:40 minutes and we did not know that there was a tour without the vault that we bought.

    Great caves at Maastricht
    Great trip to Maastricht to see Andre Rieu, fulfilled my dream. The whole weekend from start to finish was everything I wanted. A visit to the caves was unexpected but very interesting, Michael our guide was exceptional. He had amazing knowledge and a great personality. Would definitely recommend the caves to anyone visiting the area.

    Great way to learn about Maastricht!
    We took two guided tours in English - one of Fort Sint Pieter and one of the tunnels under the fort. They were both great tours and our guide, Wim, was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. He gave us a good overview of the history of Maastricht and the area and explained what the fort was used for. In the tunnels he was also extremely good at teaching us about how the tunnels were formed and used over the centuries. Highly recommend both of these tours!

    North caves tour including vault
    I did the longer caves guided tour in English with Jack and it was very interesting, well organised, and unlike anything I had ever seen before. I recommend this if you are visiting Maastricht. Bring a jumper, as it is much cooler in the caves than outside in the summer.

    Great!
    We have already walked around the Sint Pietersberg and the Caestert Plateau and the ENCI quarry several times. Wonderful adventure. Now going underground as well. We chose the Zonneberg caves. We are shown around by an enthusiastic man named Charles. He jokes a lot so it is never boring listening to him. Learned a lot about the history of Maastricht. It's a pity that only basic guided tours are given after the autumn holidays. Because of this we miss the storage facility of the Nachtwacht. We also missed some photo opportunities. Despite that, we were still able to quickly take some photos, partly for our geocaching account. Nice experience!

    Definitely worth the tour
    Typically we don’t love doing group tours as we like to explore ourselves but this was well worth doing. Eric, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and charming. He explained the history and the wall carvings in great detail and it is clear he has a lot of passion for his job. This visit is a must on a bucket list of Maastricht.

The cave tour we had with Ruud was definitely great! The paintings were a suprise but the whole cave system itself was amazing! It is a must-see in the city.

We did the English fort and cave tours. Our guide was Willy and he made the experience exceptional. We learned so much and in a very fun way. Willy kept our attention, was very friendly, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. The fort and cave are unique and interesting. Highly recommend this experience.

We had a nice, informative and fun cave tour with Willy at the North entrance. I Loved how he let us feel how it is to be walking in total darkness.

Weather outside was rainy so we decided to take a tour around caves. We had amazing guide (Paul) who had so interesting, funny and educational stories. Really enjoyed this tour and recommend to others. Maybe not the best choice if you’re claustrophobic or afraid of dark, otherwise worthy of title - best to do activity in the city.

Had a fantastic tour of both the fort and the northern 'caves'. The fort was very interesting and the guide Ed was brilliant, very informative and funny. The northern limestone mines are very interesting and well worth a visit.
