This was approximately an hour tour and very informative. The guide was very nice and we have no complaints. Worth visiting and not overpriced. Coupons are available.

Took my wife and 3 children to this place and for the most part I was pleased. The tour consists of a 55 minute walk in the cave stopping multiple times to listen to the tour guide. It was interesting to see my kids react to total (pitch) dark. Something you never see anymore with so many Wal-Marts around the... More

My husband took the the kids, ages 8,10 and 12 through this while I enjoyed a beautiful spring day sitting at the picnic tables reading. They do offer offer free coffee as well while waiting. Price isn't bad. Also the gift shop has the same cheesy stuff as in pigeon forge but cheaper. Good for kids with a couple bucks... More

Visited the Forbidden Caverns on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. The caves have some great scenery, the tour guides are informative and the tour itself moves along at a great pace and takes about 50 minutes. The price is fair for what you get. Our toddler even enjoyed it. Just be aware that tours don't start until a half... More

It was pouring rain the day we went so we were looking for an inside activity to stay dry. When we arrived I had to wait patiently in line for tickets while a lady at the front desk selling tickets talked to a customer about close to nothing for awhile. Then we had to wait awhile for the tour to... More

Pouring rain, my husband pulled up to the entrance to let me and my children out of the car before parking across the street. An employee with a serious attitude walked out told us that we had to move immediately, parking was across the street! So much for southern hospitality and being family friendly. Did not waist our time or... More

On our last day in the Gatlinburg area, we let both of our children choose one activity that they really wanted to do. My daughter selected Forbidden Caverns, and none of us were disappointed! While nothing as large or spectacular as my trips to Carlsbad or Mammoth Cave... Forbidden Caverns had its own special charms. For one thing... our tour... More

Came here over Thanksgiving break. They do close from December to March. So things were winding down for the season. We are cave enthusiasts and make it a point to go to any cave within a 60 mile radius where ever we go.This was our 7th cave this year. This I must say is a very nice one. Our tour... More

Our family had a great experience. Our children loved it. (Ages 11,5,4,2) It was our first "Cave" experience. It was worth the money and reasonably priced. Our guide was nice and very knowledgeable. There was plenty of sites to see. Some places were a little wet/slippery. I would recommend you wear gym shoes. If you are one that gets cold... More
