We managed to get in 15 minutes before the official opening time and had a Group of 6 so including the guide we had 7 people in the cave at once. It was a wonderful experience learning about the history from our guide. He was very knowledgeable and then om our way back we popped into a small village to have a wonderful walk around and a beer. Before heading back I asked if he could drop me off at El Campello which the guide was more than happy to do after dropping the others back into Alicante. Wonderful experience and would definitely recommend to others!

An excellent trip - lovely caves and a good insight into a local town. The guide was full of useful tips and local info, well beyond the scope of the tour. I can highly recommend the company. Also, the communication was excellent before the trip. All the questions answered immediately with helpful guidance and further recommendations.

This was an amazing tour. I did it with my teenage kids and we chose e bikes,we all had such fun! Manu was an EXCELLENT guide, really engaging and informative. This was the best thing we did on our holiday. Highly recommend (and the ebikes are great fun fir easily bored teens!)

Our guide was excellent, slipping easily between Spanish and English for explanations. a group drink at the end (not sure if this is a regular occuramce) was a very good way to know those in the same group (we had another couple and a lady).

Excellente personne qui nous à bien tout expliquer
