The caves were not as cold as you would expect them to be which was a great surprise :) The inside of the caves is breath taking and our tour guide was very educated. Sigh definitely worth seeing if in the area

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and they made the tour... More

Dont get very excited by the very name Crystal. there is literary no crystals. The cave was good though. the Guided instructor was very nice and informative. apart from Cave they have basic Walking trails, Golfs for kids and bar-b-q places.

I had not been to a place like this since I was a little kid, so it was a neat thing to see. Our guide was informative and seemed knowledgeable. It was interesting to hear about how the place came about and was discovered. We got some cool things from the gift shop. They also have a small cafe type... More

A short scenic ride away (for me) is this historical geological wonder. After a short walk up a steep hill/stairs, you come upon Crystal Cave. The sights, smells, sounds within the cave are wondrous. The tour guide was informative and knowledgeable. She spoke loudly and clearly for the group of thirty we were placed into. It took us a leisurely... More

The cave itself is pretty cool, but avoid holidays. Started with a too long film that was very dated and couldn't be heard because people let their children stomp, run around and scream during the presentation. Staff needs to let then know they must stay in their seats or leave. Same situation in the cave. The kids kept screaming or... More

Nice place to visit if you like geology, rock formation and caves. Very nice guided tour. Some steep staircases and metal bridge. Kids will enjoy it. The food was not bad..the usual stuff - chicken nuggets, hot dogs etc. The ice cream shop has some nice varieties. There is also a museum and panning for gems. Overall - a good... More

Other than for people with claustrophobia, this is a great day trip which has all the things you'd expect from a trip to a cave. In addition to the cave itself, there is "panning for gems" ($6), which is popular for kids. There is also a mini-golf course ($4.50 per person), which is an old style mini-golf course that doesn't... More

The history of the cave and how they came to be was very interesting although the hill leading up to the cave was very steep!
