Awesome cave and tour guide! Geoff is very entertaining and knowledgeable! Loved my pieces of jewellery I bought there as well. Definitely worth a visit, especially to see the glow worms.

Thanks. Glad you enjoyed. The nature of caves makes it harder for people with mobility problems but with care the majority are able to enjoy the beauty.
