We went on a great 1 hr tour with our very entertaining and knowledgeable guide, Jay. The caves were of varying sizes and were very interesting. The Cathedral Cave was wonderful complete with music. All in all well worth the money!

Capricorn caves have been a really good place to visit. The caves itself spectacular. Our guide was not only a good story teller but even willing to give us some good advises for our follow on tour.
