This was a great tour for groups with younger kids. You have to climb down a number of stairs initially. However, that is the only strenuous part of the tour.

Beware this tour is not available everyday. We really needed an on your own tour as I'm 8 months pregnant only to get there & be told its only offered Saturday. That would be fine if their website said that but it doesn't, very frustrating.

This is a good tour for some background history on the cave and miners. There isn't any spectacular cave features on this tour. You will have to climb stairs in and out of the cave. If you are looking for dramatic cave scenery, try the Frozen Niagara Tour. Tickets sell out quickly for that one.

While on a three week trip with our 4 year old grandson we stooped by Mammoth Cave. Reluctantly we went on this tour all id can say is "WOW" even with a 4 year old.

This is a great tour for those short on time but who want to get a feel for the caves. You get to see a large room and other highlights to whet your appetite for another tour if you have the time.
