This is a self guided cave by headlamp, great caving adventure, please keep in mind, its self guided, lots of stairs, ladders and quite a lot of phsical exertion required to navigate this cave

It is a medium-level adventure cave and love that we are able to offer this experience without a guide- however we issue you with a safety briefing, torches and helmets before you go. Thanks for the great review.

Thanks for the great review- glad you loved it as much as we do. Spot on about the age recommendation as younger kids could struggle physically as well as unable to verbalize their feelings. Calgardup Cave is also self guided by torch light- much easier...More

Loved this mistake! It had been suggested that I visit Mammoth Cave (which I'm sure is very worthwhile seeing) but owing to a slightly muddled memory I went to Giant's Cave instead. When I bought my ticket I was warned that there were ladders to...More

Glad you and your family enjoyed your experience. The way the cave ladders were installed means that once you commit to climbing them (start about half way through the cave) that you are only climbing up which is much safer than having to climb down...More

We have visited all of the caves and the Giants cave makes you feel what it would be like to discover one, no lighting torches only and some tight areas were fun. truly a cave in its natural state.
