Small-Group Budapest Caving Tour

Small-Group Budapest Caving Tour

Supervised by professional caving guides, this moderate 3.5-hour tour combines caving, climbing and crawling. Negotiating your way through Budapest’s subterranean cave system, you'll often have to climb walls and crawl through narrow passages, so be prepared for an adventure!

Caving in the Budapest caves does not require any special skills or prior experience – it’s a thrilling activity, suitable for guests of all abilities. Your guide will provide detailed instructions on the use of equipment (provided) and techniques for climbing.

After being fitted out with all your equipment, you will be ready for your caving experience across the 12-mile (20-km) multilevel Palvolgyi-Matyashegyi labyrinth system.

This tour is suitable for ages 13 and up to 50. Though you'll have to crawl, climb, scramble or creep many times during the tour, no caving experience is necessary.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2015

I came into this with very few expectations and found myself delighted by the experience. It was a true adventure that is not easily found many places. You find yourself crawling between rocks so close you can almost feel them on your chest and back at the same time; it was completely exhilarating. Laci (Lati?) was a phenomenal tour guide/ He was incredibly experienced and he imbued the entire tour with his energy and spirit. In fact at one point someone's headlamp died and couldn't be fixed, so he traded with them, thus being left in total darkness even while he led the tour. I would recommend this trip to anyone who likes adventure, doesn't mind getting a little dirty or small spaces.

A note about the negative reviews: they are pretty off base. Needing to take a bus to caves really shouldn't be a deal breaker. I would however recommend not having time specific plans after the tour, that way if it runs a little long you'll have no issues. (It's not a movie after all, the duration will be variable. If you're like me, you'll find yourself wishing for another hour in the caves anyways.)

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

We have such an awesome time in this caving tour. If you are looking for a fun, adventurous activity to do while in Budapest, I would highly recommend this. Crawling and climbing through the caves of Budapest was definitely a hight of our trip. We were in a group of about 10 people, with very helpful and knowledgable guides. There are some tight squeezes along the way, so make sure you are up to being in small spaces.
