Absolutely beautiful. There are a few tight spots to get through. Also a lot of walking, but well worth it.

Great guide and interesting/beautiful sights - just be aware that the although the tour itself is 1.5 hour, there is a lot of waiting even after the advertised start time. Really more like 2 hours so plan accordingly.

This was a nice, 1 to 1.5 hour tour/hike through some caverns to the waterfall. I think because of the volume of people they guide through here, and because space in the caverns is pretty tight, they have to run the tours on a pretty...More

Very nicely done. I'd you are interested in caves/caverns take a tour. If you are taller than 5 feet 5 inches be prepared to duck down a bit of the tour.More
