This was great fun, was bit worried when arrived and everyone else in the group was at least half my age (i'm 50) , but made no difference, the guide was great (sorry can't remember his name) told lots of stories and made the whole experience really fun,

Fantastic but exhausting. Edith was great! Great information and humor. It is fairly physically strenuous so make sure you're in shape enough to pull your body through extremely small openings. Would have been nice to have water to drink but couldn't take anything on the tour.

Edith was an excellent guide, very kind, patient, helpful, knowledgeable, great sense of humour, and her English was excellent. The tour itself was an interesting experience, although if you're looking for an impressive display of beautiful limestone stalactites and stalagmites, this isn't the tour for you. This is very much a 'sport' caving tour, with lots of crawling, creeping, and sliding on your butt. Gloves are highly recommended, as well as knee pads, if you're sensitive. Also note that the distance is incorrect. It isn't 20 KM. It's less than 2 KM round trip. We pointed that out to Edith, so it may be corrected now.

We were a group of no more than 8-9 people, all young adults 21-29 years old. Our guide was quite a pro and funny. It was quite a once in lifetime experience to do caving for around 3 hours under the city of Budapest.
I recommend this activity if you are up to for some sports-like challenge.

Seriously limited by one of the participants who was afraid of everything.

What a fun adventure in Budapest!! Our caving group was very small, just five of us total. Our guide, Edith was very friendly, and super well informed about the cave system she is actually a geologist. When we arrived, she offered helped us get our gear, which includes the caving suit and a helmet. WEAR OLD SNEAKERS! Your shoes will get muddy and smelly from the cave system, and even with two washes they are still a little funky. Bring shoes you can just throw out afterwards. You spend about 2 hours inside the actual cave, climbing and sliding and exploring. Edith has facts about every room and lets you spend enough time to take as many photos and videos as you want. If you are claustrophobic, I wouldn't recommend this tour as there are a lot of spaces that are small that you have to go through in some locations, there are alternative ways to get around, but not everywhere. Our group had great energy, and we were all laughing and joking along the way, and helping each other if we ever needed it. It is a unique thing to do in Budapest, and I would 100 do it again!

Although quite physically demanding, my family and I loved this tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and took great care with our safety. I highly recommend this if you want to do something different in Budapest.

Outstanding, really enjoyed the tour. Learned a bit about geology, this history of the caves, even movies filmed in Budapest a surprising list that I hadn't suspected! The guides were charming, helpful, experienced and extremely competent.
