    My best experiment in Andalousia! The visit was supposed to be with an audioguide but because of covid, Getyourguide employed local guides to make the guided visit. It began on August 12th at 10:30am and ended around 2pm. The guide, Mar was simply awesome: erudite, effective, she managed the covid rules changements nicely and made us at ease. We visited the place like royals and she generously shared informations and answers. No need to say: the place is gorgeous, even more than what I was expecting. Thank you Getyourguide and muchas gracias Mar.

I went with my friend and we both enjoyed the experience.You have to walk quite a bit to get there (uphill) but there are a lot of places where you can sit and pause..but it is definetly worth it.Awesome view and many caves to check out.Every cave is different.

At first I was a little tired and didn't want to continue, but in the end I continued and it was worth the very nice visits, the very nice monitors, the truth is that I would repeat.
