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.
My highlight in Budapest, something different but totally worth doing. It says the duration but I thought that included the getting there and back but it doesnt. It was a full afternoon for us, make sure you have good shoes for grip but not shoes you care for too much as its a little slippery in places and muddy. I never noticed till after but I bruise like a peach and quite a few little bruises on my arms from climbing through, wear long sleeves but light thin stuff if you want a little extra protection, but it didn't bother me or ruin my experience in anyway. Loved it!
Superb Superb Superb!! Its an amazing and unique experience, one of its kind for sure. Thrilling and exhilarating !
This was such a fun trip. It was a great opportunity to see more of the Buda side and our guide was fantastic! I definitely recommend this trip!
Tip: make sure you have 4 bus tickets per person before the excursion and plan to do the Budapest baths the day after! It and #39;s a great combination!!!
Lazlo was hysterical and an experienced caver - this was by far our best experience in a two week European trip. Extremely challenging for the lay person and we both had such an incredible sense of personal accomplishment - sore for days. Do not skip this - AMAZING time and people up to 250 lbs. can
This is one of the most amazing tours I have done anywhere! Highly recommend. The guide was very knowledgeable and made sure we were all safe and knew exactly what to do. It is a highly physical activity so expect tight spaces and lots of crawling/squeezing/sliding/climbing. You will get dirty so plan on a change of clothes or going back to your hotel after to shower. I would say wear shorts, a tshirt and boots/tennis shoes as you do get coveralls and all the activity keeps you warm even though the caves themselves are cooler.
Two things to note: While this says 3.5 hrs for a tour by the time you get there and finish the whole thing it turns into more of a 5-6 hr activity. You need to plan your day around it. They also end the tour at the caves, leaving you to find your way back on your own so make sure you have a map and some bus tickets handy for after the tour. Great value for the money but they really should charge a bit more to get a bus or something to take you to and away from the site.
Super cool experience, exploring the caves. We had a very experience and engaging tour guide that made this very worthwhile. Do wear shoes with good grip and that you dont mind getting muddy!
Not for the closterphobic! That said, this was an experience of a lifetime. I was scared to death the entire time ya know, one way in one way out kinda thing but it was worth every minute. When we are talking tight spaces, I am talking about doing a superman pose through some passages. Our tour guide was excellent and even though I was more focused on how to get myself through a hole, the part of the tour that I was listening to was very interesting. This was one of my top experiences of my entire trip and I would definitely recommend it.
It and #39;s really exciting. And the guide intriduced clearly. You must experience this in Budapest.
This was the highlight of my trip. It was a little challenging in places, but with amazing guidance from our tour guide, we all managed to get through it. For those of you that are worried, there is always support if you need it and there are even times when you can go an easier way walking around, rather than crawling through. One of the best things I have done in my life!!!!
Such a fun adventure! Our guide made us feel capable and confident even when squeezing ourselves into what looked like impossible spaces, and kept us laughing the entire time. Cannot go to Budapest and miss out on this experience!
So much better than expected!! Tour guides amazing! Really fun and challenging experience.
the caving tour was a great experience - be prepared to crouch and crawl a lot, there are very few walking parts! our guide was very funny but also comforting and gave a great inside on the geological backstory of the cave system. all in all very highly recommended, but be aware of the slight physical challenge :
Thrilling experience!! One of the best things I've ever done. Highlyyyy recommended. Agnes is by far the best tour guide EVER, fun, enlightening, happy, full of energy with a beautiful singing voice you'll love this.
Recommendations to Viator: 1. Provide more info about the tour. Crawling with no lights in tiny wholes, getting dirty and sweaty etc was not in the description. 2. Please also advise your Customers to bring along second shoes, shirt and a small towel.
Brilliant caving experience. Highly recommended for your first caving tour.
