    A little small, but quite interesting. The guide was good fun. French wax his native language but his English was still good and he told some good jokes. The caves are smaller than we expected.

    An utterly fascinating and truly privileged insight into what has been formed by something that we take for granted - water! Exceptionally knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide (who's English was extremely good) followed by a most interesting view of what the area used look like! Very good restaurant, serving good food and wine all reasonably priced!

    Really worth seeing and visiting with a very nice guide Elizabeth who speaks English and French and makes a joke from time to time
