Upon purchasing our tickets we were told there would be a 15 minute wait, which was no problem as that is quite usual for most cave tours. About a half hour later a tour bus of no less than 50 people came in and lined up at the entrance of the cave. We were then told that we would be... More

My 14 year old daughter wanted to go to Howe Caverns because she had never been there before. Since it was a hot day and I had not been there for some time, I thought this was a great idea. While looking at the Howe Caverns site, I saw a link to Secret Caverns. I had never heard of Secret... More

I love Secret Caverns! Fascinating, really beautiful! Great prices, great gift ideas! I loved all the many colors that were unexpected to find. All the staff were friendly & helpful!

This was my second time here and it's still very cool. The marketing is a bit hokey but the caverns are neat. I'd say if you have the time or you come back, doing both Howe and the Secret caverns is worth it but if the line is too long at Howe, head on down to Secret, it costs less... More

This cavern is fantastic -- as close to spelunking as the unathletic can get! The features are very interesting to see and the waterfall is awesome. Be prepared for a wet path -- flip flops and sandals are not the best footwear for this tour. The only entry is by 108 damp steps of varying heights to walk down into... More

Enjoyed the caverns. The waterfall is beautiful. If your coming up to Howe Caverns, take the extra trip up the road to secret cavern. Both places are unique in their own right. Neither should be missed.

My husband and I decided to stop at Howe Caverns on our way home from Cooperstown (A few years back). Once we started seeing the campy, tourist trap signs, we decided Secret Caverns was right up our alley and detoured. We absolutely loved the caverns. We were part of a very small group (6 people) and our tour guide was... More

We wanted to see the caverns but didn't think our five year old would last the 90 minute tour at Howe Caverns. The Secret Caverns are great. The entire tour is interactive and kept the attention of my five year old (plus he was free to get in). We had a great day and memories that will last a life... More

My husband & I have already been to Howe Caverns so we wanted something different. Enter Secret Caverns...it's a bit quirky with the signage but totally worth it. Our guide (I think his name was Joel or Josh - can't remember) did a great job explaining things and he had an awesome sense of humor. On the return trip back... More

We went to Howe Caverns the day before which we absolutely loved. However, Secret Caverns was pretty spectacular as well..the waterfall was incredible and our tour guard was very informative ...
