Did the 3 hour wet and wild tour last Christmas and the family wanted more! Miles was our guide and he was great! There are three areas of hands and knee crawl with a good length of belly crawl. If you don't like to be dirty this might not be the tour for you. I am a larger person and... More

5 stars for the tour guide alone! Jessie was down to earth, very good at her job and up for a laugh. Really interesting tour around 3 caves. You will get dirty and a bit damp so dress accordingly.

My friends took me on the four hour tour for my birthday. It was a lot of fun. The guide was hilarious and incredibly knowledgeable. He was very patient too, and made everybody comfortable. The caves were beautiful and interesting. I loved the parts on the harness. One piece of advice: Definitely read and observe the guidelines on what to... More

These caves are amazing. My daughter and I were only able to do the self-guided tour, but we really enjoyed it and are excited to one day undertake one of the longer tours. Really neat and different thing to do. Wear pants and good water-proof shows and if you want one of the family tours though, make sure you book... More

Our party of 8 including kids ages 10 and up plus 76 yr old Grandma, did the family tour and enjoyed it very much. The worst part was the 20 -30 min walk up the steep paths to get to the cave. If it had been a hot day, water would be needed! Some of us have done caving in... More

This was by far the best tour I have ever been on. My friends and I decided to go for the 4 hour tour. Our tour guide, Miles, was supper funny and friendly, very knowledgable about the area and the caves. He took us on an amazing adventure as we crawled through tunnels, climbed walls and saw some extraordinary crystal... More

This is a good place to get a guided spelunking experience. There are many choices from exploring yourself to repelling into one of caves. Spend the money if you are able and take one of the tours. we took the 1.5 hr tour. You go thru a small suspension bridge and walk up 1/2 mile to the cave entrance. You... More

With my family group of adults and teenagers I visited the Horne Lake Caves, for the 'Family Cavern' tour. On the whole a good experience, and it was a great introduction for those young people who hadn't been caving before. The guides were good, knowledgeable and personable. As a senior, I really enjoyed the caving experience and had very little... More
