This really is an amazing trip! Be prepared you do go very very deep underground!! Amazingly the air is flowing down there so it feels quite fresh! I’m a little claustrophobic but it was fine, once you were down there! There are some amazing sights that must be seen.

Very uninterested tour guidewho simply almost read through a script. When we entered the large cave he simply went off to gossip with his colleagues. Pictures make the mine seem better than it actually is - big dissapointment.
