We took the "Dripstone Trail" tour at Blanchard Springs Caverns. Enjoyed it very much. This is a perfect activity for all alike, from young to even my 89 year old father-n-law. The tour guide did a wonderful job of explaining everything. They have a video before you enter the caverns that tells you about the caverns. The trail was very... More

There are 2 tours of the cave. We took them both and both were excellent. The guides were very knowledgeable.

You will NEVER regret your visit to this wonderful place. This is a must see but take the lesser tour if you have trouble walking. Even then it is somewhat difficult.

After visiting many caves in the past year this one was the easiest to navigate. We had a very knowledgeable guide making the tour a fun learning adventure. This cave was awe inspiring.

We took one of the guided tours. Toni, our guide, was awesome! Funny and very knowledgeable. They have lights that they turn on when you are in different parts of the cavern so it makes it very easy to see and take some very neat pictures. We would love to try the longer tour if we are every that way... More

My boyfriend and I went on the wild cave tour on Saturday, September 13, 2014, and it was the highlight of our trip. We drove up from Hot Springs, which was a 3 hour drive. It was absolutely worth it! Our tour guide, Aaron, was amazing! He made the tour really exciting and fun, even though we were spelunking for... More

We were here in September. The Caverns are located in a pristine, uncommercialized area. How refreshing!! My husband and I took the Dripstone Tour, which took us about .4 of mile into the upper cavern. The Cavern was amazing in it's beauty. Words cannot adequately describe it's beauty. Dale, our tour guide, was wonderful. He was extremely knowledgeable and his... More

The tour was pretty much what I had expected. Didn't hold the attention of my 6 year old kids too long though. It's definitely worth checking out if you are in the area.

We went last Saturday, Aug 30, 2014, on Labor Day weekend, and there were quite a few people when we arrived for the 11:50 Discovery Trail Tour, which started promptly. I believe there were 2 Dripstone Tours (1 hour each) at 11.20 and 11.40 respectively on that day. It took us about 2.5 hour to get from Little Rock to... More

Not commercialized. Guides were knowledgeable and had a contagious love for the cave! Included a good amount of knowledge about the ecosystem and the history of the cavern. Well done.
