A great hours tour to see the beauty of this cave. We had a great guide that had us in stitches! The stairs are a bit hectic so I wouldn't recommend it for those with limited mobility

One doesn’t expect such a big cave. My son is 8 and loved the experience! Get there on the hour to join the tour - worth it!
