I really loved this tour the guide was amazing letting you know all about the surrounding area and the cave itself. This was not the most stunning cave I have ever seen but it did not distract from the fun of getting dressed up in bright orange jumpsuits and hard hats and climbing through very small places. This tour would only have been better if they also supplied knee pad as I came out covered in bruises (being tall didnt help).

This turned out to be one of our favorite tours during our recent stay! However, everyone should be fully aware of what this entails. We read other reviews and thought there would be a LITTLE crawling on all fours........but there was A LOT! In fact bring knee pads if you have them. It was very dark and wet and part of what we liked is that we were scared we wouldn't make it through the small crawl spaces. But our tour guide was great and always encouraged us. This was definitely a "once in a lifetime" adventure.

Awesome adventure! The guide was fantastic. Be aware that this tour requires some crawling and bending over.

fun! Not hard but had to crawl on hands and knees for 2-3 meters a few times.

This tour was okay. It was definitely interesting to go into the lava tube and see the many different textures of the walls/floor/ceiling throughout the tunnels. The helmets were a lifesaver many many times. Be prepared to crouch, bend, crawl, and roll to get through some spots in this tour.

Good experience, though we made the mistake of doing this just a few hours after we landed and it's certainly a fairly strenuous activity. Be prepared to crawl on lots of tiny rocks with sharp edges for parts of it. Deducted a star because the guide went way too fast and we were left trying to find him most of the time (and it wasn't just jet-lagged us because the entire group was going the same speed as us). He would dart far ahead and wait for us to catch up, say a few things, then dart again. Maybe that's supposed to be the "fun" of caving....but I wanted a guide to stay closer so we wouldn't go down a wrong way.
