    The ice cave is totally fascinating, the way there is mostly gravel. Unfortunately we didn't have a jeep but a larger bus that seemed rather unsuitable for this slope. Apart from that, the tour is highly recommended. The guide was very nice, explained everything in an interesting way and gave further tips.

    We had a very great experience with our guide Fabio and bus driver Ali. The glacier of snow and ash was great to see and we learned a lot of interesting facts. However, you don't really walk along the glacier, only for a very short time to get back from the cave to the parking lot. The ice cave itself was really impressive and amazing! Of course it's not huge - it's just nature, which is always changing. The path through the cave was never difficult and there was enough time for photos in the cave itself. The only exhausting thing was that a few people really had to take endless photos at every corner and you had to wait again and again for them and you just spent a lot of time waiting... We were definitely very happy that we had the privilege to be able to see this ice cave again. However, value for money in this excursion is not right.

    Maria was our guide tour and she was nice since the beginning of the tour. Weather conditions were not in our favor (rainny and foggy) but it didnt stop our tour. The equipment they lend us was ok and the super jeep too. We made it through 2 glacier caves but it took us around 20 minutes to walk them.
