The cave is interesting however the tour is only done in french, which you aren't told until you have paid and are inside.

Cave itself is interesting but the tour is in French so standing there for 45 mins in the cold isnt that fun specially when cave is size of a tennis court so there isn't that much to look at. Could do tour in 5 mins.

It was an amazing experience though a bit tiring. There is a part of the cave that you visit on a boat and another one which are steps up and then down. Excellent guides explaining everything in different languages. Just breath taking!

Was excited to see the cave and pre-historic paintings. We were told the tour was in French. We asked for and were given the printed English guide. We read the entire guide prior to our tour, but boy what a shame. Our guide did not...More

The geological formations in the cave were very dramatiic and e well illuminated. Our only regret was no commentary in English. Otherwise good value
