My husband and I took the Wild Cave Tour at Mammoth in June 2015 and it was excellent. I've done several of the "normal" tours at the park and this one... which I appreciated so much more! Our main guide was a woman named Tory. As background, I am in my early 30s, female, 5'5" and slender. I run 3-6... More

My girlfriend and I were both a little worried about doing the Wild Cave tour after reading some reviews and viewing some of the pictures of the holes you crawl through, but we were pleasantly surprised. The tour guides were very good at making you feel safe and calm. We're both in our mid 20's, had not had any caving... More

If you go make sure to ride the gingerbread man coaster before you do anything else. It goes 0-60 in .3 seconds. All else was very well, however the site promised virtual fish tours, which were no where to be found... Disappointing.. But not a deal breaker.

We has an awesome experience with the Wild Cave Tour. Our guides were Rose and Jacky. They were both very knowledgeable and made us feel very much at ease with the cave. The tour lasted a full 6.5 hours and was a lot of fun. While not really strenuous it did require a bit of stamina and strength. Most of... More

My girlfriend (58) and I (52) took this tour/experience in the park. It was SPECTACULAR, but be warned, they rangers take things VERY seriously. Be sure to have over the ankle boots with a DEEP tread. One guy almost didn't get to go because his tread was too worn. Fortunately, he had a spare pair of boots in his car.... More

I am 51 and finally went on the Wild Cave Tour after 2 years of attempts and cancelations due to a frozen shoulder or business travel. I was not passing it up this year again, my shoulder had finally unfrozen and it was labor day weekend. A ticket magically became available on Saturday night. I arrived an hour early since... More

My wife and I are both 51, we went on this tour yesterday, along with our 18 year old son. We expected to be sore, and boy are we. Most muscles are sore today, but most annoying are the numerous cuts, scrapes and bruises. Our elbows and forearms took the brunt, and were we wishing we had elbow pads. That... More

Be prepared to crawl, climb and squeeze through tight passages. Very important is to take hiking boots that cover the ankle. The tour guide will check it before he will let you come on the tour. T-shirt and comfortable shorts are perfect to wear. It is easier to crawl and stretch wearing those; and the temperature in caves is always... More

The absolute best way to see nitty gritty guts of this breath-taking world heritage sight. My sister, Athena, and I went on the trip together for the fourth of July weekend and we couldn't stop smiling the entire 6 hours. Yes, we were sore the next morning, and there were points that made me wonder if I had updated my... More
