I dragged my hubby here but he loved it! We were the only 2 on our tour and our guide gave us a fantastic personalized tour. It is out in the middle of nowhere, no phone service, and everyone told us the gps took us the wrong way, but it was a fun morning tour. Would be great for kids... More

We learned so much from our guide Benjamin on a late Friday afternoon tour. He wad so knowledgeable and friendly and really went the extra mile to point out all the amazing things to see underground. Not sure who had a better time, the kids or the parents! We are already talking about going back to do the longer adventure... More

This review will focus primarily on the "Middle Earth Expedition." (The Caverns also offer a much shorter walking tour.) First of all, the company does a good job of describing this outing on their website. They provide all the information that you will need to make a decision about whether this is for you or not, what you should bring... More

Very interesting caverns and off the beaten track. The pleasant, scenic drive to get there is half the fun. Well run tours that are very informative, entertaining and educational. Nice grounds too for relaxing.

Our group of 6 boys and 2 adults signed up for the Mammoth Cave Expedition. I wimped out and took the regular tour. The boys spent about 45 minutes getting changed into their coveralls and knee pads and getting briefed on what to expect. The boys were 11 and 12 years old. They LOVED their tour and had no problems... More

I have been to all the caves and this one take the prize! Has quite a few chambers, the most in the entire county and very informative and funny staff. You will get history AND comedy involved in this tour. This is must for anyone interested in caving. They also have some fun looking excursions that I would like to... More
