The tours are conducted by a fellow in a suit and hat of the period most talked about, the 'gangster' period of St Paul. He talks about the caves of course, and the formation, but everyone wants to know what went on when it was a speakeasy and the tours don't disappoint.

We opted for the traditional tour and really enjoyed it. The cave is full of gangster stories and a surprisingly rich history. A solid choice for 40 minutes of fun for a relatively small price with the pay off of a being a quintessential St. Paul attraction. Snoopy's sad state out front was the only drawback. It looks like a... More

Best lattes at coffee prices! Friendly cute coffee shop! But be mindful of the cave tours! ! The line gets long! But, they are quick to keep things moving. This cozy shop IS NOT open gas station hours... it more like extended McDonald's Breakfast hours!

We went on the general historic caves tour. It was very interesting and has a lot of wonderful history behind it. It also costs only $6 dollars a person for a 45 min tour. We are surely planing on going again some day for the ghost tour. The tour lady was very theatrical. :)

I was looking for something I'd not seen before, being that I have family in St. Paul, the tour of the Wabasha Caves was just that. As a adolescent in the 60'sI had snuck inside the caves through a small opening with some friends which was before they had to tell people to stay out due to people being getting... More

We started out with the cave tour that took about an hour. Departing from the coffee shop on the premises, the small group gathered with beverages and delicious home-made cookies. Our guide was very friendly and explained how the caves came to be. The history behind these doors is simply amazing. After dinner, we came back for Swing Night. Every... More

Awful 2 hour bus tour. Should be called the 2 hour bus tour with stories they took from a book. Started with us loading the bus (late) and then driving a block from the health partners parking lot to the cave parking lot. Really... we couldn't walk? Spent some time in the caves which was pretty lame. The guide gave... More

I went on the "Caves and Graves Tour." I wanted to treat my Mom to this tour because we are both very much interested in history and the supernatural, and I thought it would be a nice activity to do together. The first red flag occured when I called to make the reservations for the tour. The person who answered... More

You might be thinking "caves, so what?" There is a lot of history here if you're interested in the history of St. Paul and gangsters. The tour is a good length and very cheap. If you're debating on visiting or passing on this attraction, stop and take the tour. Tours are limited (time and days) and sometimes are booked for... More
