Perry's Cave was a quick, yet interesting and unique experience. Once you get to the bottom of the steep, skinny stairs, you're about 50ft. below ground-level and among stalagmites & stalactites that are really old and neat to look at. The guide shows you around as you stay on the "trail" and tells facts and tidbits about your surroundings. The... More

I have literally been going here since I was five years old. (31 now) I've always enjoyed the cave. I always make it a stop if I'm with someone who hasn't been to the island before. The only problems I have with it is it seems to be getting smaller. I remember when it was really tall, and HUGE. However,... More

We bought the 4 attraction package. We did the Butterfly House, Maze, and Mini Golf. The kids really enjoyed the maze and the golfing. The butterfly house was a miss. We didn't have time to get back to see the cave, you have to stop by and get a time to go through, it's a guided tour. *Tip* You don't... More

It was my first time seeing a cave of any sort. It was a tad boring as many of the caves features had been destroyed long ago. Our group had about 20 people and one highly annoying tour guide who was making jokes and talked about things non related to the cave. She was unable to some answer questions about... More

We toured Perry's Cave August 6, 2014. We found the tour rather unimpressive and really not worth the admission price. The tour lasted maybe 30 minutes and was just one large underground room. All the stalagmites or stalactite’s had been removed or damaged years ago. I do not recommend this tour unless you’re looking for a cool place on a... More

Unfortunately, my husband and I did not vist this Cave or the Crystal Cave. To see the cave's is a separate fee. In the past you just walked thru with a group. Since we have visited the cave's in the past this was not a must see for us. If you have never been here before then I recommend that... More

Perry's cave was interesting and not a super long tour so good for even the little ones. The super saver pass was a good deal because there are many family friendly activities at the site. Getting tickets was a bit confusing, could have been more organized with better signage. Would recommend.

Perry's Cave tour allowed us the opportunity to see another of Ohio's cool natural landmarks. The cave itself is really neat and there's plenty of history that goes with it. The guide did a nice job of sharing some of that history with the tour. Unfortunately, the attraction is located in a tourist trap area (Put-in-Bay) and is highly overpriced.... More

We've been to Put-in-Bay lots of times, but never made it into the caves. We brought the children along on the trip out and made it a point to see the cave. It was cool to see. The kids seemed to like it just seeing it, but I liked to hear how it was formed and the role it played... More
