I wouldn't take the boat into the caves, the best was to walk down the 650+ steps, and take in the views. The Caves themselves were expensive, and the group tour was very large, you were bolted onto the boat groups. It was facinating watching...More

After an enjoyable 45 minute boat thrip you arrive at the Grotto for a guided tour of the 500m of walkways. The grotto is stunning with a narrated tour and fantastic lighting.

Sadly the beauty of these caves was heavily outweighed by the sheer volume of people crammed in there, giving it the ambience of an inner-city supermarket at rush hour. It's one long queue before during and after. We had no autonomy and the 600 steps...More
