Haven't been there in over 50 years. Still amazing. Sorry there is not handicapped access so one of our family could not go. Tour guide was VERY young and obviously a scripted tour but the natural wonders made up for it.

Having visited with my parents 50 years ago, I had to return with my wife to share this outstanding experience with her. We had a great guide, and really enjoyed the grounds, and museams as well as the extraordinary cavern.
