NOT AT ALL OF WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE...

NOT AT ALL OF WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE!! it was a group of 4 people, and the guide couldnt even give the 2 of us attention. Was just busy guiding and touring 2 super ignorant and noisy tourists. Also, a total rip off in terms of what you see. Save your money, and dont buy this.

First off Viator gave us the wrong...

First off Viator gave us the wrong tour time and we were an hour and a half early. The ride to the cave was fabulous. Buddy our tour guide was knowledgeable but we literally walked into a small whole cramped with tons of other people, took pictures, and it was done. Not at all what we thought.
