A piece of nature is well preserved on the inside of this mountain, the guide was great at telling you about the history of the cave, and a lot of artifacts are preserved.( the Cons. the lines were entirely to long. More than a hour waiting time)

We recently stayed in Chattanooga for a few days and we decided to visit ruby falls as we had brought a combo ticket. The under ground walking tour takes just over an hour through enclosed spaces with several twists and turns. The guides are very informative and have a good balance between cave facts and story of how the attraction... More

We got here around noon on a Saturday and should have expected the lines but wow. We waited about an hour or so in line. I thought about buying tickets online but I think you are waiting in line either way. Once inside you meet up with a guide and take a picture. It takes about three elevator rides to... More

It was sort of a bust due to the immature guide we had. Although he had knowledge of the Falls he made way to many bathroom jokes.

If you are a big fan of visiting caves, I suppose you would enjoy this tour. However, I found it boring (take this review with a grain of salt since my purview is that if you have seen one cave, you have seen them all). Corny tour guides with lame jokes who practically twist your arm at the end for... More

We were the first trip in the morning so it was not crowded. Beautiful falls at end of cave. Coming out was a problem as several later groups crowded the passageways and made it difficult to get by. Guides should have controlled it better.

I went here today with my family of 6. I was very disappointed because it seems that we were rushed to see the waterfalls and too many people for one tour guide. Not worth my money and time. I have seen many great waterfalls from Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Philippines and this falls seems to be different? We asked... More
