A fantastic adventure exploring the caves, rappelling down waterfalls and seeing glowworms. It was my first time caving and I had a great time. Our guides (Iain and Kenny) were very knowledgeable and fun. All equipment is provided (bring socks!) and photos are included. Thanks for a great experience :)

We had a great experience at the Troll cave. Great value for money, just scary enough for the kids, they have talked about nothing else since. Lots of photos which are included in the price, emailed promptly following tour. Peter the guide was great.

First off, if you're considering this just for the tubing, you may want to look at other options. There is tubing, but it is only a small part (that's the only reason for 4 stars instead of five--the title is a little misleading). But if you want a caving experience but aren't comfortable with climbing/abseiling, this is the one for you! There's sliding through mud, a couple of slight squeezes but not too bad. If you haven't worn a wet suit before, be careful putting it on or you'll lose the skin off your knuckles. Also, when the wet suit and boots are full of water (e.g. when you're hoping back up the hill at the end), it adds a LOT of weight, so bear that in mind when deciding whether you're fit enough.
