We had the famous Laci as our guide and he was every bit as good as the reviews. The tour was the best value for money, we felt that we were in safe hands right from the beginning. The tour had just enough to push our limitations and there was enough expertise from our excellent guid Laci to ensure our safety and fun. The equipment was first class, the caves are still in relatively untouched condition but what makes the whole tour is the fun and informative communication from Laci. We were not only on a tour but an educational experience. He was also able to seperate the rowdy young backpackers from the people genuinely interested in the historical value of the tour. There was 22 who met at the meeting point and we were separated into 3 groups of 6 which was perfect, I wore sport shorts and a t-shirt under the overalls and glad I did, it got a bit hot and sweaty down there, I had a warm change of cloths in the lockers they provided. We were ready with our two bus tickets from the beginning but many had to go and get them which wasted a lot of our time. I took my hungarian gf and she was amazed at what herbicide had to offer. I took a small video camera and it worked a treat, I was able to easily put it Into the top overall pocket. Thanks again Laci.

This tour was one of the highlights from my Budapest trip. They outfit you with a jumpsuit, helmet, and headlamp and you can leave your stuff in a locker while you're caving. Definitely recommend it!
