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!

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.
