Subject: very interested

After years of visiting your website, and checking out all your
amazing photos of the different expeditions, I'd like to get in
contact with the crew that organizes these trips.
I'd like to know when these expeditions are running and how I can get
in touch with the people that run it in order to join them, and be a
part of the whole experience. I am currently in Riyadh and would be
more than happy to hear from you as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Hello, Delayel!

We thank you so much for your very kind words about our Saudicaves website and we are delighted to know you have been following our stories and pictures for years.

Fortunately, many of the wonderful caves we have featured are still as pretty as when we first entered them. Sad to say, a few of the most beautiful caves have been vandalized. Stalactites were broken off and removed and graffiti was sprayed on the walls. It’s hard to believe, and we will soon do a special article on this sad subject. Several governmet organizations are supposedly working on putting gates on the most important caves, but so far no gates have appeared.

We are presently located in Mexico, but we have passed your request for visiting some of the caves to several of our contacts in KSA and we hope they will soon contact you and make arrangements for some wonderful adventures underground.

Please let us know your impressions of the caves and, of course, please tell us if you run into any obstacles or delays.

John and Susy Pint
