I'm not one who normally gives negative reviews but in this case had to endure a 45 minutes lecture in Hungarian at the start. The guy could speak English but everything was said in Hungarian - I know it's Hungary but there exist headphones or...More

The caves are absolutely worth the stop. Just tell them you only speak English and skip the tour - watch some 3d videos and proceed directly to the caves. Note that when sitting on the boat, you need to be able to fold forward to...More

Ancient volcanoes still heat the thermal waters which formed these underground caverns below the present city of Tapolca. First you will receive a guide led tour of the geologic history of the region with some jungle gym type experiences (crawling) for kids first and then...More

Before jumping into the boat there is a presentation and a very nice video explaining the formation of the cave. It's very interesting, however it's presented just in Hungarian. There are signs in English and German that explains the basics, but there is no subtitles...More

About 2 hours the trip itself, but if it's very crowdy you are assigned to fix time slot during the day when your trip starts. Handicapped and accompanying people get privileged time slot.
