I'll be brief as I can. The caves are amazing. The tour itself was annoying. Just like every other negative comment, LOSE THE LIGHT SHOW! It was awful, almost painful. Flashing lights to a 1960's prerecorded story of...well...I don't know what that was supposed to be. I just know that it was borderline embarrassingly bad. Our tour guide kept pointing... More

Forbidden Caverns was a very nice experience. The length of the tour was about right and the walkway was lighted just fine and the caverns were amazing ! A good value.

Our three sons 7, 9, & 11 really enjoyed the visit. They had never been to a cavern before and were very intrigued. The walk was as described. Wear sneakers. It is chilly inside so I would bring a sweater. My two complaints... Our guide was.... Well.... Boring. He really didn't seem to enjoy his job. He spoke kind of... More

If you are in the Gatlinburg or Sevierville area it is definitely worth a visit. It is a fun stop for any age group. Remember to take a jacket and your camera along with you.

We had a great time. Really neat experience. Do bring a jacket if you get cold easily. This was my first time in a cavern and did really enjoy it. It was definitely worth the price. Could have done without the lighting effects where it goes pitch dark during the history of the Indianans - did seem necessary to make... More

I thought it was interesting and neat. Would not advise if claustrophobic or can't do darkness or uneven terrain. We were able to take photos which was great. Kids (Teens) loved it.

My husband and I visited these caverns and really enjoyed it. It was chilly inside so I would advise taking a light jacket. The sights were beautiful!

The whole family, 6 adults, 2 teens, and 3 kids under 10, including a 3 yo. Our guide was great, caverns were beautiful!! Lighting was good, and history was very interesting. Off the "strip" but well worth the drive. Over 500 feet underground, nice and cool!!

It's a nice drive from Gatlinburg to the Forbidden Caverns. There were some neat features, and it's great for all ages. They allow flash photography which some appreciate, but for those of us that were just there to enjoy the tour, it got super annoying to get flashed in the eyes non-stop. We would have enjoyed it much more without... More
