We had a wonderful, and truly memorable time, crawling through cave. We want to go again.
Excellent, fun way to try caving. Led by an experienced, friendly instructor. We tried several aspects of caving; crawling through VERY narrow passages, getting wet and muddy (part of the fun!) and abseiling. If you're looking for a safe potholing "taster" I would thoroughly recommend this!
