What you'll do

We created this tour to show a very unique place for those who are ready to make efforts off the beaten track! We will visit a natural labyrinth system – a 3 dimensional playground, where we will often have to clamber up steep walls and creep through narrow passages. Prepare yourself for something active!
- We will meet up near the cave (30-45 minutes from the city by bus, still in the residential Budapest)
- You can change your clothes at the changing room, and we will give you the necessary equipment.
- We will spend 2,5-3 hours under the ground. We will discover a small part of a 30 km long multi-level labyrinth system. As the cave is practically a maze with a network of passages, we can always find the path which fits your level of fitness. In means that we can do a relatively easy tour (still challenging), or an „adrenaline-pumping” tour - it’s up to you!
- The tour is very interactive with a friendly atmosphere and English-speaking expert hosts.
- It’s a perfect occasion to meet new people and maybe make new frindships - as there will be situations where cooperation makes your way easier.
- After the tour you can chill at the moody beer terrace of the cave.
Other things to note
This is NOT an outdoor experience, it doesn't depend on the weather. Age limit: 10-55 years. No prior experience of caving needed. It is an active tour so we don't suggest it to very overweight people

We’re passionate about caving. We all started caving as a child, and this passion followed us for a lifetime. We have acquired our caving guide qualification more than 15 years ago and have been guiding caving tours since then. We are fans of speleology, so besides the adventurous part of the tour, we will give you an explanation on the geology of the cave and hills around: genesis, minerals and fossil remains.

Where you'll be

Myriads of tourists hike the Buda hills for the jaw-dropping scenery lying at their feet. But did you know that straight under your feet, there’s a very unique world hidden inside the mountain? The same thermal springs that supply our famous spas created more than 200 caves under the Buda side of the town. Pál-völgyi cave – the aim of our visit - is the longest of them and is on the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Rated 4.97 out of 5 from 487 reviews.

This was a really great experience that I will recommend everyone. The host was very good at telling stories and explaining the cave’s structures while making sure everyone felt safe and comfortable during the whole experience. I would definitely want to try this again some day.

Very tiring, but worth it. Since I’m the only person that was present, he decided to bring me down to the lowest point of the cave rather than doing the standard tour.

This was a great experience as a first time visitor to Budapest! So neat to learn about the cave system and all of its nooks and crannies. Not for anyone who's claustrophobic or afraid of the dark. I definitely would recommend to anyone looking for something out of the box.

Ein einmaliges, fantastisches Erlebnis! Wir haben nach Abstimmung die etwas anspruchsvollereTour mit Szilard gemacht und sie war super! Er konnte uns mit viel Fachkenntniss und sehr gutem Englisch ein sehr sicheres Gefühl vermitteln. Die Tour sollte man sich, wenn man auf Abenteuer steht, wirklich nicht entgehen lassen. Es hat aber auch etwas Mut gekostet und für Menschen mit Klaustrophobie definitiv nicht zu empfehlen, da es schon mal etwas enger werden kann. Alles in allem war es aber super schön, hat mega viel Spaß gemacht und war eine ganz besondere Erfahrung. Ich werde die Tour beim nächsten Besuch definitiv wiederholen!

We had an amazing time in the caves today, was a great memory to make and wonderful experience, the guide Evi was just great. She explained everything well and we felt very comfortable and happy with her as our tour guide. If we’re back in Budapest, we will be back to the caves :) 20 points out of 10

Diese Tour war das absolute Highlight einer an Highlights reichen Woche in Budapest!!! Ich wusste nicht, dass man beim durch Höhlenkriechen, also Adventure-Tour, soviel Spaß haben kann :-))) Am Anfang hatte ich noch ein leichtes Bauchgrummeln, weil es mein erstes Mal war, aber unser Guide Silasz vermittelte schnell das Gefühl, dass er für Sicherheit sorgen könnte. Bevor die eigentliche Tour begann, wurde in der Gruppe abgestimmt, wie schwierig sie sein sollte und die Devise "gegenseitig helfen" ausgegeben. Nach den ersten zwei gelungenen Parcours herrschte nur noch die reine Freude. Allerdings kommt man beim Höhlenerforschen ganz schön ins Schwitzen und es werden Muskelgruppen beansprucht die sonst nie beansprucht werden. Silasz ist neben Caver auch noch intimer Kenner der Horror/Fantasy-Filme der letzten 50 Jahre, also erwartet bei ihm immer ein paar Jump-Scares und Filmzitate ;-) Unbedingt empfehlenswert!
