It is done as a tour lasting am hour. There are some excellent structures to see, and a lot of them together. You are also treated to two light shows.

This is a spectacularly large cave which has been turned into a significant tourist attraction though its light show etc. Before we visited we understood that this was VERY accessible of the disabled and less abled - but the reality is that there are lots of steps and some awkward places to squeeze through

The underground cave (Cathedrale de Cristal) is a fascinating place to discover. We were able to hire headphones so that we could listen to the tour in English. The tour started with a sound and light 'show', and continued by descending the stairs to the floor of the cave, where one can marvel at the wonderful sights which nature has created over millions of years.

Free parking is available opposite the venue. I would thoroughly recommend this venue. The only negative aspect for us was that the staff insisted that we leave ID as a 'deposit' for the headphones. One has to leave a passport, driving licence or bank card. I'm never comfortable leaving such items, and would prefer to leave a financial deposit, so be warned!

This cave shows you the result of geology. the lights are nice placed and there is a short 'light and music show' to experience the way it was discovered.
The tour was only in french, however there were audioguides but i think they contained rather a shorter version of what the guide was telling.
there are stairs, but also accessible with an elevator

We booked via the phone for a later slot... 5pm...but actually did 4.40pm tour. Were relieved as previous tours seemed quite heavy on people. We arrived at 4.20pm and were offered tour straight away but Due to previous comments and need of audio sets decided to wait 20mins. Audio ok. Gave enough info, but frustrating not to have the guides input. No photos allowed but I stepped back and made use of having a guide and taking pictures discretely. There are plenty of sneaky opportunities!
