We thoroughly enjoyed our tour which was guided by Augusto. We were visiting Italy from Boston, Massachusetts (USA). Augusto was very knowledgeable and communicated well with us in English. The cave tour was a great thing to do in a short period of time. The walkway inside the cave felt safe and well constructed. It was amazing to experience this beautiful, natural wonder!!

The cave is accessible to both little children and disabled people. Temperature inside is about 14°C in the summer. Along a relatively short and easy trail you can see an incredible variety of impressive geological shapes and phenomena, led by Cristian, a competent and passionate guide, who knows each and every hidden corner better than anybody else since he took part to the excavations from 1995 until 2011, when the site was inaugurated and opened to the public. Better to contact the personnel on site in advance to coordinate your guided visit. Possible drawback to be verified - no English spoken.

Visited in January with my family. I have been in many caves but never one with a full on raging river running through it, complete with white water rapids! The caves are run by volunteers so you have to make some allowances - the place looked closed when we turned up. After we found someone to assist us we then had to jump back in our cars and drive a few hundred meters down the hill to get close to the trail leading to the caves. The walk from the gates took about 10 mins with my 3yo. Our guide was very passionate about the caves and seemed quite knowledgeable but spoke no English whatsoever so one of our party had to act as translator for the rest of us. The access to and in the caves is first class, well lit smooth paths and metal walkways. Our guide informed us that the caves give a different feel depending on the time of year - we came after heavy rain and the river was raging - you could hear the rapids from some way off and sense the power of it beneath you - he said that in summer it was much calmer. The trail had a few smaller trails leading off it and the guide explained that you could walk down to beauty spots next to the river and picnic/bath in summer. My wife and kids really enjoyed it and said it was the best cave they had ever been in. My friend AKA our translator said he would be returning to do a rafting experience that the guide had mentioned - apparently they do adult only tours deeper into the caves as well where you can walk up the river several hundred meters. Cost was €4 per adult with kids going free - bargain.

When we arrived at a concrete building in the middle of nowhere to be offered iced tea and be told in almost non-existent English that the guide would be 30 minutes, we didn't realise this whole operation is run by volunteers from Falvaterra, passionate about their town and trying to build a socially responsible business. It was delightful to go from that hot place to the refreshing cool of the caves, and find they were kitted out with state of the art lighting and pathways. Elisa did a fab job of filling us in in great English on the history of the area, the mythology, and the remarkable discovery and exploration of the caves, and had us laughing plenty. €4/pp got us a personal guided tour of cathedral-like caves with some magnificent formations - if we were not going home we'd go back for the full on €30 pot holing exploration & boat ride.
