Ancient volcanoes still heat the thermal waters which formed these underground caverns below the present city of Tapolca. First you will receive a guide led tour of the geologic history of the region with some jungle gym type experiences (crawling) for kids first and then...More

Before jumping into the boat there is a presentation and a very nice video explaining the formation of the cave. It's very interesting, however it's presented just in Hungarian. There are signs in English and German that explains the basics, but there is no subtitles...More

Definetely recommend to visit. There is a long line that you have to wait to buy the ticket so it is better to go early in the morning after that is crowded. The tour is guided but in Hungarian, no option for English, you can...More

About 2 hours the trip itself, but if it's very crowdy you are assigned to fix time slot during the day when your trip starts. Handicapped and accompanying people get privileged time slot.

Hi, maybe take a ferry from Siofok to Balatonfured and then by bus to Topolca. But not sure how often does the ferry go during the winter.
