We visited in September 2014, just after the latest cave flooding so everything was shiny and fresh. The electronic talking guide is available in lots of languages and helped a lot as our tour guide spoke little English. The tour is quite long and sometimes...More

A fabulous underground experience going back 5 million years BUT beware, there are 300 steps up and down throughout the visit. Exhausting, but well worth it.

Wonderful and enormous caves, a masterpiece by Mother Nature, millions of years in the making. Terrific refuge from sweltering summer heat too, as it is 16°C inside (it was 38 outside)(!) Only downside is the tourguide language: high-speed-french only.

This certainly rates as one of the very best underground experiences you will find in France. The visit starts with a video presentation explaining how geologists believe these caverns were formed. The guide on this occasion only spoke French but I am reliably informed English...More
