  • I enjoyed myself here. The place has beautiful views. The staff makes you feel comfortable. The place is historic. And the guides makes you feel like part of the experience. It was really fun it even felt like the tour ended too soon. I would definitely recommend it and we will be back soon.
  • An awesome place to visit. For the adults, the scenery and views are just amazing. The caves are the main attraction & well worth the entry fee that you pay. It's better to go in with the tour guide, cause they make the experience much more interesting. There is also a butterfly park & a dinosaur park which could appeal to the kids. There is vehicle access to the foot of the cave and then some steep steps to get to the cave entrance & viewing decks.
