Beautiful place, great lighting in the caves and falls, recommend more video than pics as the tour is fast paced at times and it's easy to hold the tour up taking a thousand pics. Definitely worth the wait! Especially if your lucky enough to have Andy as a tour guide! We can't even begin to explain how great he was!!... More

I was worried this would be a tourist trap, it wasn't. Facilities are great and the tour was a lot of fun for the family.

This is our third time going to cave, first time in this area. The tour was very decent and worth the fee we paid. As typical, most people need a jacket because of the temperatures in the cave. The drive to the cave was a lot of curves, so take your time. When we arrived, the parking was decent and... More

As you might imagine, it was jam packed at Ruby Falls on Labor Day. When we discovered that they open at 8 a.m., we knew that was the time to go. We were on the very first tour of the morning. Our tour guide, Doug, was fired up and ready to roll. Doug must be a part-time comedian. He was... More

If you are traveling with young kids and also plan on visiting Ruby Falls on a weekend or busy time of year, get there early!! The attraction itself has a lot of waiting (stepping to the side to wait for other groups to pass by) so that coupled with waiting just to buy tickets was a double whammy for our... More

We arrived early on Sunday morning, and had only a short wait to get into the elevator for the ride down to the cave and tour. When we came out after an hour and a half, the line extended out the door and well down the parking lot. The cave tour itself is like many others. There are a number... More

The history of Ruby Falls is very interesting. The ride down the elevator is spooky. The walk to the falls and the formations is well lite. Our guide was entertaining and full of facts. When you get to the falls you only here it. Then the music introduces the falls and the lights come on. Wow what a sight to... More

Our tour guides name was Mia, she was so funny. Which made the tour that much better. She was very knowledgable of the cave, as I believe she said she had been tours for a long time. We took our time so everyone in the group could take pictures and take a good look at all the sites and formations... More

The walk in the cave to the falls was long, slippery in spots, but beautiful. The falls were so beautiful and our guide was fantastic. Ask for Andy!!
