An interesting cave complex with 11 'rooms' on a guided tour. The tour starts with a short train ride to the first room. Although there is an elevator which avoids the first steep flight of steps, there are lots and lots of steps, often uneven, to climb. Definitely not for anyone with mobility problems. The guide only spoke French. We... More

Nicely done, the tour guide was helpful where possible with language. The non-French paper guides were inconsistent, we had Spanish and English and they didn't agree with each other on what they said. However, even though I have seen a few caves in my time, there was still much to marvel at including an impressive 'dark' room.

The cave was beautiful and I'd of given it a 5 if the tour guide would of at least acknowledged we were none French speaking. So ye we walked around looking at this beautiful cave but had no clue what we were looking at.

We visited the Grottes De La cave today on our way between Rocamadour (excellent place to visit) & Sarlat. Our caves brochure indicated the tour commenced at 1400 hours, but after the ticket office opened then the start of the tour on the electric train didnt start until 1435 hours. Grottes De LaCave is a good example, especially relevant if... More

This tour is a must do if you're in Le Cave. The fascinating calcite formations are beautiful! We visited in October, the off season, but even so there were two full tour buses lined up as we exited. The tour is about an hour long walk through the various chambers. Our guide only spoke French but there is an translation... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the caves. The tour route was a bit long for our two little ones, but they managed.... Overall, a lovely attraction.
