The tour guide was very friendly and helpful. The caves were a little chilly so wear a jacket. Great Sunday adventure. My 16 month son didn't enjoyed being carried in a carrier so I wouldn't recommend bringing children under 3.

Man made and very small. Very steep climb up hills and stairs to get there. Not recommended. No English tour

One expects to see much more, but there are only 2 levels that are open to the public. Also, the place is filled with spiders.

A fun little tour, but was smaller and shorten than expected. A nice way to kill some time, especially with inclement weather.
