Exceptional. To do ABSOLUTELY! A huge thank you to Augustin who was incredibly helpful in guiding us on this guided tour, reserved in French but which turned out to be with a Spanish guide, who spoke English, with an Andalusian accent. Not easy… But Augustin, allowed us to appreciate this getaway even more with his culinary advice, his translations, his anecdotes, etc… The landscapes are breathtaking. The colors are unreal. The cave is really a marvel (and very practical when it's 40 degrees). We really recommend you. We were lucky to be a small group of 6 people, plus our guide and our French guide, so very intimate and almost privileged. Truly exceptional. Thanks again to you Augustin, looking forward to seeing you again one day on a visit somewhere in the world! A big thank you from two conquered Rochelaise.

The tour was great. We liked it very much. Miguel was a very committed guide who accompanied us on the tour with expertise but also wit and charm. Despite low water, the Roo Tinto is well worth seeing. The abandoned and active mines and the landscape are also impressive.

Superb excursion with Miguel as a guide who knew how to welcome us and accompany us as it was necessary during this day. The caves are splendid, unfortunately photos are forbidden there. I recommend this excursion!

A very varied and interesting tour - the Gruta de las Maravillas in particular was incredibly impressive. Catherine guided us through the day wonderfully and entertainingly.

The mines were interesting to see but the Cave of Wonders was amazing!
