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.
This was fantastic! Never would have imagined that caving would be so much fun or popular in Budapest. Our guide in the caves was a lot of fun, exceptionally knowledgeable about the caves and geology in general, and made the experience nearly painless. Besides all of the cool 'rooms' and formations, one of the strangest and neatest experiences is when they have everyone turn out their headlamps and become still/silent. Woah. The caves are quite extensive and I would happily come back for another tour!
Only 2 minor comments:
- Meeting up in the city center/ train station makes sense if you are near that, but it was out of our way compared to where you actually start the caving. Would be nice for them to just give instructions of how to meet at their offices
- This is a long experience! Would be nice to have a small snack or beverage choice at some point along the tour in or out of the caves
It was a treat to go caving in Budapest. Many parts were tight and required some physical work to get through making the experience more fun. I completely recommend the experience to anyone.
This was a really fun and interesting thing to do. We had a wonderful guide who told us all about the caves we were in. This was the first time I'd ever done something like this and wondered at times how I was going to fit through the gaps in the rocks. I didn't need to worry though, the guide was super helpful. I'd recommend this trip to anyone as long as you're able to get down on your hands and knees, and sometimes your stomach, to get through the caving system. Have a go. You might surprise yourself!!
This was great. I had been caving in the past and this was one of the best ones I've crawled around in. The female tour guide made it fun. She had a fun sense of humor. I would defiantly recommend this.
It was a great break from sightseeing and doing the usual touristy stuff. A must do if you want to try out caving but didn't know anyone to go with.
