Our guide turned up exactly on time. He was a really lovely man and very friendly. Our trip was everything I expected. The caves are amazing and definitely worth the trip. Would definitely recommend the trip and your company to others.

I expected more from this experience. Save your money and just get a taxi to the caves. This was not a private tour. Our guide dropped us off at the base of the caves and said to meet back at the car in an hour. That is not a private tour. Once we climbed the 270 odd steps to the entrance, we were surrounded from the front to the back of the caves with rubbish everywhere. If this is supposed to be a temple people worship in, then why do they trash it? Absolutely disgusting.
