The weather was awful the day we decided to go but that didn't deter us or affect the day at all. Overall a good experience, very interesting and beautiful! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Worth the visit.

A very attractive cavern with good access. The young women who guided my group was doing her very first tour (with a colleague as back up). She managed very well.
