Absolutely a must visit, well organized, fun little train to go to the first cave. Absolutely stunning caves with impressive views. Some caves are huge, others a bit small or low. But all are easy acces. We had a blast!! Must visit!

The guided boat ride through the underground caverns is a spectacular treat. The guides speak French of course but will also explain in English if requested. The entire Dordogne region is the most beautiful and fascinating region in France.

Thank you for your commentary. As you said all of our guides don't speak english that's why we are working on an application for translating the guide's speech to english people. See you soon.

The accessibility of the cave is fantastic and allows the visitor to get up close and personal with all the formations in the cave. A real treasure.

no. there are lots of steps some are very steep. with the dampness in the cave places are slippy so for me even carrying a baby could be tricky. there are also places where you need to duck your head.
