This is a great cave, the history is very interesting, we went on a rainy day so no crowd - we had a private tour. It has lots of steps they make you wear a hard hat, just in case you bump your head in the low spots, though no crawling or anything too difficult. We saw numerous bats and... More

This is a GREAT tour! These caves are where Dr. No was filmed. Wear sensible shoes it is dark at times and uneven.

Went to the cave with my partner. The staff were courteous, and the guide was very informative. She sounded a bit rehearsed, but that is expected since they have to give the same information to different people several times daily. I would recommend this to anyone who likes history and subtle adventure.

If you are on the adventurous side then this is a tour for you! Not only will it be an adventure but it will walk away with a better understanding of Jamaica's history and the role the caves played in it. Our tour guide was awesome, knowledgeable and very very nice..ask for Kevon Campbell! He made the 45 mins tour... More

If you're looking to spend a couple of hours to break up the day, this is an ideal local trip. It's not going to be for everyone and I would not recommend for anyone unsteady on foot as some of the caves are low and steps steep so not for the elderly in my opinion. If you're intimidated by bats... More

We popped in after a visit to a local school. No queue and a very informative guide. The history of the caves is intriguing- I won't spoil your visit by sharing it all here. We saw bats and a snake too!

Our tour Guide ‘Chedd’ was very informative giving us the history of caves and it was quite educational and interesting learning everything that had gone on in the caves prior to being a tourist attraction. It can get hot inside the caves and the stairs are steep and narrow in places as the caves takes you down about 45 feet... More

This was my first time experiencing the caves and it was very educational and interesting. The tour guide was great. It was small but I really enjoyed it. Must be able to walk up and down stairs.

Went on this tour with a group of colleagues. This was a remarkable experience. Very informative tour. The way the rocks formed natural images is so amazing. Our tour guide Tafari did an awesome job. He is very knowledgeable and made the tour an entertaining and educational one. I will definitely recommend this tour to my guests.
