We took the longer tour and found it interesting and informative. The ranger was very interesting and didn't rush us. She did a great job explaining the features of the cave. The group was small enough for us all to be able to see and take pictures as desired. A definite "must" if you're visiting the park.

We were up in Great Basin National Park during winter which is one of the slower months as some of the roads to the higher up locations are closed off. Luckily the cave tours stay open year round as caves are always at the same temperature. The cave tour was so much fun. We had a smaller group of 4... More

The 90 minute tour is only $10 and is very informative. We went in January so there was only 10 of us on the tour together. The caves are cool. Bring a light jacket. Not for big people. You do have to duck down a few times and go sideways down a narrow passage.

We went way out of our way on a trip to Colorado last fall, just to go to this national park and take the cave tour (we love caves). And it was so much more than we expected! The scenery here in Northern Nevada is spectacular, the wide flat valleys and one range of hills after another. We were here... More

Really enjoyed doing this. Ended up taking the shorter tour, and didn't leave disappointed at all. Tour guide was quite knowledgeable, and very patient in allowing for photography, so be sure to bring your camera. Really would've liked to have taken the longer tour; perhaps when I return the next time!

This National Park is far away from most everything. So if you are willing to invest the time, this cave tour is essential. You can call a few days in advance and make reservations and I HIGHLY recommend that. The phone number is found at www.nps.gov/grba. Otherwise you might not get same day tickets at the time you want.

This is (I think) the smallest national park, but worth the visit. The caves are beautiful, you do have to be on a guided tour. I have done both day and night tours, both are worth the time. Hiking is great around the park, lots of wildlife.

Take the longer tour if you can, the last room was amazing. Bring a flashlight too. You can light up formations as you walk instead of depending on the limited lighting in the caves. It was a lot of fun and a great thing to do on a rainy day.

You have to take a guided tour, for obvious reasons, so check at the visitor's center to see when the next tour is. Interesting formations. Wear a jacket!
