During your 1 hour visit, a passionate tour guide unveils the genius of Lady Nature who for over millions of years shaped this magical world. This tour will lead young and old into a universe where imagination has no limit: piles of plates, forests of giant palmtrees, drapes, ...
On this guided tour, 121 meters deep, a light&sound show highlightens the grandour of the environment, an emotional wave and everlasting souvenir before returning effortlessly with the elevator.
