The cave is interesting and beautiful. The stalactite formations are very unusual because they don't just grow down, but create amazing patterns of delicate crystals. The tour was done in French, which was difficult for the English speakers. We were handed a sheet of paper,...More

An interesting cave with stunning stalactite and stalagmite formations and you are surrounded on every side by unique formations - even horizontal ones! Our guide Elizabeth was funny and really brought it to life in both French and English

Me and my children really appreciated that the guide took time to give us explanations in English, it was very kind of her. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the excavation of the cave and its geology. Not too long for children, but...More

Most places in the Vezere and Dordogne valleys focus (for caves at least) on pre history and cave art and dwellers. Grand Roc, though, shows a completely different set of views in that it displays magnificent stalactites and stalagmites. We have seen a number of...More

There is always the danger that if you've seen one cave with stalactites you've seen them all. Not having visited any similar caves I found it incredible. Tour guide was very helpful and fluent n both French and English. Recommended.

lots of small stalegmites and stalegtites as you walk through a small (watch your head) cave. tour guide in spoke English and French which doubled the length of time inside. It was small and boring and over priced.

After having been to visit the monumental spectacle of the Gouffre de Padirac, this cave is at completely the other end of the size scale. It is truly a wonder of miniature stalactites, stalagmites and crystals growing in all directions. If you are expecting a...More

Very interesting cave, not formed like so many others with a river or other large water flow, but rather the steady drip drip of water into an open space. Some very interesting takes on the usual stalactite / stalagmite story, and one massive piece which...More

Stunning beautiful crystal cave. Like being in the center of a geode. We had a excellent guide that spoke English. She tried to accommodate us, but the cave rules are she has to give the tour in French if there any French people on the...More
