Fantastic experience. Very cheap and a good afternoons worth of entertainment. The cave system was much larger than expected and the stalactite was very impressive. The tour guide was fabulous and she really helped tell the story of the cave and the stalactites discovery well. The eco walk/shop/cafe were also great additions to the ticket.
