My family and I visited Perry's Cave and had a great time. The cave tour itself doesn't take more than 15 minutes, but the guides shared a lot of interesting facts and history with us. It's cool in the cave, about 50-60 degrees, so it felt great on a hot summer day. The floor of the cave is damp with... More

I would recommend this adventure to get a good historical view of the island. This tour isn't very long, approximately 20 minutes. The trail has a few puddles, so watch your step. There is a small cavern entry, that you don't have to enter if you have fear of tight places. This is ok for kids and old folks alike,... More

The cave itself really isn't that big but interesting nonetheless. Our tour guide didn't just point out the natural features of the cave and the formations but also provided a small history lesson about the cave during the battle of Lake Erie.

Wonderful guide. Truthfully, it is hard for me to leave a very honest review because I found I was claustrophobic.

Pretty tacky tourist area...not much guidance or help with ticket sales, as we could have bought a multi-attraction price for what we paid for 2 of the features. Agree with previous reviewer that there does not appear to be any adults in charge, just high school teens more interested in hanging with their buds than being overly helpful. Cave was... More

Short but sweet, could of been a lil longer. You go in so far, turnaround go back out the same way. Guide was informative, the jokes well not so good. Good place to cool off if you go in the summer.

Man of War Putt Putt Golf & the Maze were fun. The cave was cool to see. The staff at Perry's Cave seemed to have no adult supervision & were rude. They acted as if the customers were there to wait on them.

Small, go in the same way we returned. Slippery due to rain-so be careful of the weather. Watch your head. Wish the 'guide' was an educated experienced park ranger instead of a teen with his summer job-the memorized speech with its 'jokes' were blah. For $8/per person, wanted a little bit more and longer than 15 minutes. Kids would like... More
