    Highly recommended. Our English speaking guide was excellent! He had so much knowledge and the recreation of the caves and their art is incredible. Great audio guides too. We weren’t sure whether to visit but we’re so glad we did. Followed by a beautiful walk around the town. A great day out. Cx
