Caves I've been to before are often either one large cavern, or there are too many people. The Caves at Thauzon are none of these. We joined a group of about 12 in total for a 45 minute tour. Entry is only with a guided...More

Was good to see this grotto. Would have been better with more information in english. They do give you a written history in english which is helpful. Was worth a visit and glad I have seen it.

On a hot day a visit to these caves was a charming diversion. Quiet reception area that doubles as a cafe area while you wait for your tour, which is about 45 minutes long and our guide spoke really good English. Interesting geology, fairly unique...More

The Grottes de Thouzon are part of a larger grouping of caves in the region, but the cave tour here is informative and just long enough. It offered a nice reprieve from the summer heat (we visited in July). The tour (about $10 US per...More

We visited these caves while we were staying in Orange. They are quite small, the path inside being only about 340m long. There is however a guided tour and the girl taking ours was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. It is only about 13 degrees in...More
