A fantastic experience. Our guide, Brigitte speaks all the languages that are offered fluently, which meant that extremely interesting conversations were possible without any hurdles. Not only what she had to say about Mallorca, the customs, traditions, values and legends was interesting but also her as a person. She told me about Mallorca with enthusiasm and a lot of love, which sweeps you away. We learned a lot today and it was a wonderful trip. Thanks so much!

The stalactites and stalagmites are very nice and lit in interesting ways. The explanations are in multiple languages, short, and to the point. There are also a couple of movies and a recorded musical concert with videos projected on the cave walls. The cave is pretty small and the tour takes less than an hour in total. The temperatures are 18-20 degrees.

Wonderful experience both the caves with amazing lighting and the shows. Definitely recommend. Take into account that when you arrive and present your voucher you’ll be assigned a specific entry time, in my face I had to wait 30 minutes for my group to enter

Great value for money. Extremely enjoyable experience. Friendly and warm guides showing you around

Amazing caves and short enough that it was convenient to take our 9 month old
