  • Great little trip out to the caves. The tour guide knew her stuff and made it fun and interactive for all. Included in our tour were small families and myself a single traveler. So good for all. Thanks for the great coffee and fantastic service!
  • Most amazing experience. Our tour guide was marvelous and very informative. Loved the caves,it my second time time. They need to have kids free tours as the kids running around and being very noisy for the whole tour was very annoying and ruined it a fair bit.Parents should be controlling them but I guess they only care about themselves. Well worth the visit.
