A bit of a walk through the cave but worth it. A lot of cool formations. A few tight spots but not to bad

What a cool place to visit to be able to go underground and see a waterfall was great. I went with my wife and the kids (aged 17 to 9) they all enjoyed it very much one thing it's takes around an hour or so to do the tour and there's no bathroom in the caves so especially for the... More

This was very amazing to checkout. Checkout YouTube videos on it as well. You get better perspective than reading comments. However, our tour guide was very awful and lackadaisical. I cant remember her name, but she was not good, kinda of chubby white girl, but she didn't know much facts or barley spoke like I notice other tour guides where... More

Cool place to go, lantern tour was worth the money. I would like to go back and see it during the day.

One of the many sights you must see while traveling the mountains of Tennessee! Ruby Falls are underground and a wonderful sight to behold! It is very dark before the lights come on the waterfall. Fun adventure.

This was by far the best thing we did. We had an awesome guide and we were the only people in our group so it was very personal tour. The walk is long and tight in spots and interesting if you are a history buff. I am not but I was still fascinated by the distance the 'miners' 'searchers' 'whatever... More

Everyone who visits Chattanooga, most defiantly should visit the Ruby Falls. It takes almost an hour and half. It teaches a lot about vision and determinations . When after the walk, you get to see the falls , I promise you it takes your breath away. Our guide, Mr Bill was awesome and very well knowledgable .

Ruby Falls is a incredible ... however, I was disappointed because, after traversing through the cave to the falls, we were allowed only a short time to view the falls ... maybe 2 minutes. There were approx. 20 people in our group. Everyone wanted a picture with the falls in the background. Not to mention, some time to admire the... More

Went to Ruby falls with my son, his wife, and their 2 kids. Not really a good place for small children . Very crowded not really not worth the price. Minimal time at the falls. More time waiting for other groups to "pass" thru narrow passages in the cave. Felt rushed the whole way thru.
