    El agua está fria pero les darán un wet suit y cuando vean los gusanos valdrá la pena

    Not a huge fan of small spaces but I was able to get through the cave trip & had fun! I didn't understand at first that I didn't have to crawl thru the small tunnels but once explained I was good.

    We went for the Black Labyrinth and it was worth the money, the guides were awesome, the caves and worms were beautiful:) And the hot shower, soup and bagel was a cherry on top 👍

    undfortunatly the office seems to be quite chaotic and unorganised sometimes. they resceduled our tour without us knowing until we got to the assembly point 30 Minute before the tour.

    Did the "Black Abyss" tour and have to admit it was pretty cool. Start with abseiling 35 meters, them zip lining before you jump off a cliff into cold black water. Definitely recommend this.

    Thoroughly recommend the Black Labyrinth tour. Guide was excellent and made everyone feel at ease. Toobing is great fun & the glowworms are amazing while floating down the stream in complete darkness.

    Black Abyss is hard going at times, but trust your guides and all the scary stuff is at the start.
