Ruby Falls is quite beautiful! Especially the different colors that it changes to. I was amazed just how far down we actually went and all the cool stalactites and stalagmites.

I loved walking through the caves and the end when u get to see the falls was amazing. Our guide was funny and it went pretty quick. There are some narrow spots so if u r claustrophobic I can imagine it be uncomfortable. I would for sure do it again when the kids get bigger.

The sights that we got to see were very beautiful. Our tour guide was funny and really made my kids enjoy the time we were there. The only 2 down sides to the stop at Ruby Falls was 1: the cost wasn't worth the experience. We spent over $60 just on admission (2 adults and 2 kids) and when we... More

Beautiful place to visit. Love the views and especially loved the history of the place. Very interesting to know some of the things that occurred there and the way mother nature carved all of it out. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!#

This is a little pricey and takes a while, but enjoyed it. The guides all tell bad jokes throughout the tour, some pull it off much better than others. I have to admit, I did chuckle from time to time. Its not physically challenging, but I wouldnt recommend taking small kids. Not a whole lot to keep their attention &... More

This was a different kind of cave than we have been in before. You won't find large open spaces with the large stalactites and stalagmites. They take you down in an elevator deep into the mountain that opens up to the cave opening. You are guided through in groups. You walk along very narrow walkways with very low ceilings and... More

See Ruby Falls!!! Very interesting. Beautiful. Organized. Entertaining. Our tour guide was the best! His sense of humor and knowledge made seeing Ruby Falls great. Tour guide's name is Andy. He is worth asking for.
