Caves were beautiful! 20 minute boat ride that takes 6 people per boat on a 20minute ride. The guide did not speak English so we didn't have any explanation of the cave, but it was still beautiful and unique.

The small boat tours of the cave system are very cool. Make sure you get an audio translator. We didn't know about them until after the tour and our boatman only spoke Greek, so we missed a lot.

We've visited caves but this one is quite impressive as it's huge (+/- 1.2km). The place itself it's worth a visit, my teens loved it. However, we had no explanation nor info leaflets. Nothing. The guy on the boat spoke no English nor any other...More

This was a highlight of our Greece trip. We were mesmerized by the whole experience. If possible, try to get the front seat on the boat but watch your head :)

Although I have seen a lot of caves I found the Diros cave very impressive. The boat trip was very pleasant. The lights inside the cave were excellently set so the magnificent shapes of stalagmites and stalactites made a fantastic scenic!.
