I've been seeing the advertisements for Ruby Falls for years and finally decided to check it out. It starts out interesting enough. The group boards an elevator and descends into the cave. From then on the tour guide narrates about how the cave came to be developed and what it was like exploring it from the beginning. The cave itself... More

Visited Ruby Falls Chattanooga,Tn on 9/16/2014. Our tour guide Casey did a great job,as far as the greeting we got another story, I wish I had gotten his name. The parking attendant at the entrance was not a very friendly and actually a rude person on entrance as well as our exit. All I remember is he had long white... More

Great tour, falls are gorgeous. However the line to get in, even if you had previously purchased your tickets @ Rock City was ridiculous. Only complaint was the people who failed to realize their children were to young to participate. There are some areas that are darker & close, I noticed several children in our group were upset & crying.... More

My family and I visited Ruby Falls two days after visiting another cave attraction in the same area. Ruby Falls was BY FAR the more entertaining attraction! The cave was amazing and the falls were absolutely stunning! But what made the tour such a success with us was our tour guide, Andy. He had a great sense of humor, he... More

Enjoyed the tour. The rock garden is an amazing design. The views are great. A little on the tourist-trap side, but would recommend it anyway.

Really its a great wonder to watch ruby falls after a long walk underneath the earth through rocks of limestone. There are many wonders that we can see along the walks like the shapes of the rocks formed through many decades and the story of the discovery of ruby falls. But the real wonder is when you see that falls...its... More

My Wife and I drove from Florida to Birmingham, Alabama for a Doctor's appointment and decided to extend our trip further North for her to see a Quilt show at the Chattanooga Convention Center. We knew we had several extra hours to spend and wanted to enjoy some sites together. So we headed to the mountains at around 2pm. When... More

Ruby Falls is neat if you want to walk through a cave. I was kind of disappointed, I thought there would be more to do there. The falls with the water fall was beautiful. Take a jacket, it's cold in there.

We took this tour and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. We have visited caves in several countries, but they can start to look the same. The actual waterfall is different to any we have seen before. Magnificent! Our tour guide, Andy, mixed up his witty banter with the script, and it was his ability to make the trip fun that... More

We didn't really know about ruby falls while we were on the way to Florida. We saw the signs on the highway and we decided to look it up. Looked like a fun thing to do online and we have two kids so we decided to go for it. It was a good choice. Not the best choice if you... More
