I highly recommend this tour. A fantastic cave interestingly highlighted with smart lights making a beautiful show to see. It is true that for non french speakers, a little more effort should be done for them to equally appreciate the guided tour.

We first visited Lacave back in 2014 so as we were travelling with a friend, we decided to revisit. It was as good if not better than we remembered before. First there's the excitement of the train from entrance to the caves, then the oddity...More

We enjoyed the caves, but there is only so much looking at stalactites and stalagmites we can cope with. It's about 2 hours long, the tour is obviously given in French (except for the request for a tip!!) but audio headsets in various languages are...More

As mentioned before. This one is worth visiting. Visit takes more than hour and may become tiresome. Views are great however very repetitive - like every cave. Lines occur but they’re not so terrible.

Beautiful and pleasant place to see. If you like walking and to learn about stalactites and stalagmites, there is quite a lot to see there. Firstly you get a small train in the way down and then a nice and gentle guide will show you...More

It was exciting to go 100 meters below and have a boat ride while viewing a wonder of nature! The explanations were very informative and the guides were careful looking out for us.

The train journey sounds great but your are packed in tighter than sardines and the route/tunnel is very narrow. Once in the cave it is a lot more spacious and a guide will take you round. Really good if you are passing but don't make...More

no. there are lots of steps some are very steep. with the dampness in the cave places are slippy so for me even carrying a baby could be tricky. there are also places where you need to duck your head.
