We absolutely loved visiting the underground city, it was so interesting. The only downfall was there is no information around so you’ll need a guide. We found a guide that worked there and could give us the tour in English. He had so much knowledge...More

It's really amazing that people were actually living and surviving in those dark and narrow spaces for a long period of time. It's so easy to get lost in those labyrinth. Awesome ventilation system as there were no uneasy, damp or musky smells down there

Amazed by the engineering of the ancient people and their simple lifestyle. I would definitely recommend a tour guide because otherwise you wouldnt know what you are looking at and you would just get lost in the numerous tunnels and pathways.

This underground city is welcomed diversion. It is always climate-controlled and gave the impression that I was Indiana Jones in a real- life adventure. There is a moderate amount of walking and I would recommend wearing comfortable shoes.
