Agree with the others comments. It's a rip off (tour of 45min) ! We complained to the manager and she answer "it's a busy tourism place". Don't go there you can see caves and glowworms in way better place !



It is the less expensive and fastest cave tour of all available I think. 45 min tour was enough for me as I don't feel well in caves. Too much people tho. Nice caves and funny worms glowing.



Same complaint from us was the amount of people in the groups, guide was below average. Very disappointing with the price and the way they treat you like cows in a herd. Poorly run won't recommend.
