FANTASTIC tour!!!! The meeting point is a bit ridiculous and almost led to me missing the tour since I don't have a phone to call with. BUT once we got going, it was so amazing. I'm claustrophobic but with a little bravery, I got it done and fell in love with the sport!

The tour was great, we was met at the main station. the tour lasted a long time, but it was an amazing experience. The guides were very informative and we learnt a lot about the geology of the caves. The guides shared their experiences with us which made it more personal. It was not too claustrophobic, so give it a go. Highly recommend and you are a

Definitely not what I was expecting but it was amazing nonetheless. This is a lot of crawling and squeezing through tight spaces so if you are claustrophobic this may not be for you. However, I didn't think I could do it but we had a great guide and I surprised myself, I loved it. Very unique.

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.)
