6 times and counting. Different every time. My son and I loved it each time. Having served on a rescue team I enjoied the guides and wound up taking up the rear of each group. Some tight spots and some narrow spots but overall it was a breeze. If you do not like the dark or being closed in this... More

When you make you reservation read the fine print. As they go to great lengths to say on their website, Mammoth Cave and the National Park System may deny you access to the tour at their discretion. It happened to a member of our party. Then having denied access, Mammoth Cave and the National Park System refused to provide a... More

My wife and I ( the "prissy" one from the previous review) were on the same tour as the previous reviewer cheesewizz with our guides Kevin and Chris and thought it was a great tour.

I went on the Wild Cave Tour for the third time on November 8th and brought my friend along to experience a fun challenge. We did not get the same experience I had on my previous tours and we did not get what we paid for. Normally I have a 5 star experience. Our group full with 14 cavers and... More

My husband and I took a 2 month road trip across the country and this was the best part! I had never heard of this cave until a friend told us about it in the middle of our trip, so we took a detour to check it out and I'm so glad we did! One of the most fun, memorable... More

Took wife and kids, aging 10 to 16 for a day tour (4 hours) engaging in the "Wild Cave Tour". The tour takes you 265+ feet below the surface to an amazing world, rarely seen outside of television. This is a tour that takes you approx. 5 miles, up and down staircases, and nice walking paths. Note, not for folks... 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

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
