  • Pour le bonheur des yeux !

    " Parfait ! Spectaculaire ! Une visite à faire et à ne surtout pas manquer. Nous avons adoré. Le must de la visite étant l'aller-retour en barque ! "

  • Recommandé à 100%

    " Visite très intéressante ! Les audioguides sont très pratiques et permettent d’aller à son rythme. Les bateliers sont très sympathiques et agréables. Possibilité de prendre l’ascenseur ou les escaliers très pratique. Attention si il a plu récemment, la grotte est très humide et de l’eau y tombe abondamment (les escaliers peuvent être très glissants donc prenez de bonnes chaussures). N’oubliez pas de prendre un gilet ou une polaire en plus car la température diminue rapidement. Nous recommandons à 100%. "
