This tour is definitely not for the faint of heart. If you are claustrophobic, scared if heights or the dark this is not for you. You will be doing a lot of crawling and squeezing through tight spaces. Also includes a 20' to 25' vertical rope climb up slippery rocks, having to use all body parts for leverage. Also a... More

It was too scary for us. After finding out about it, I knew that both of us could not handle it neither physically or emotionally. You got to be in excellent health & excellent shape in order to do it. And it is just not us. However, people, who use to all this climbing, told us how much they enjoyed... More

This is a really great tour, especially if you are looking to add a little adventure to you trip into the caverns. Although the trail is pretty strenuous, most people should be able to complete it (at least physically). The guides and other participants did a very good job in helping others out, good communication is key. The cost is... More

Not for those who are not in good shape, as there is a LOT of climbing, crawling, shimmying, squeezing, heights to be conquered, and dirt to be smudged. It IS for those who love adventure and are physically able to do so. Tour is 4 hours and price is... More

They tell you it's 'Extremely Strenuous' and for a change, it really is!!!! I've climbed mountains, kayaked, canoed, hiked, trekked, caved and this was the most challenging (and probably the BEST) undertaking of my life - and I'm in great shape in my 50's. After one of my pals washed out in the first 20 feet (too big to fit... More

The Hall of the White Giant Ranger-led Tour was awesome - tons of fun! One of the coolest things I've ever done. But first let me just say that this tour is definitely NOT for everyone. It is very strenuous and sure to leave you bruised and battered. The surfaces in the cave where you have to find a toehold... More
