Enjoyed the tour. The caverns were a comfortable temperature. The guide gave a great history of the caverns. For the area I thought the cost was reasonable. It was nice drive from Pigeon Forge (which is where we stayed). A bat flew by my face, it was awesome to see a few in their natural habitat! The formations are beautiful.... More

This is the second cavern I have visited in Tennessee. Much different from the first in that the stalagmites and stalactites were not as well formed, but it had BATS! This was a guided tour that takes about an hour. Our guide was great. He told us all about the history of the cave, the creatures that live in or... More

This is an awesome place to learn a lot about the history of moonshiners. Kids and adults alike will love going here. The knowledge of the ones taking you through the caves is amazing. There is a lot to learn going thru there.

What a fascinating hour we spent going through the caverns. Our guide was very informative and answered all of our questions. He made the tour very interesting. There were only 6 in our group which allowed for a more personalized tour. The many different limestone formations were just beautiful. The gravel path, narrow and uneven in places, dampness and stone... More

I am giving this a poor rating simply because they advertise that they close at 6pm with last tour starting at 5pm. We busted our butts getting there and ended up arriving at the door of the place at 5:05pm. We figured that we could just catch up. But upon arriving, the doors were already locked. There was obviously someone... More

The caverns were pretty easy to get to. Price was $14.00/adult. If you pick up a free brochure booklet of area attractions you can get a dollar off coupon per person. The tour lasted about an hour. The tour guide Jackson did a good job from what I could hear. The only thing I didn't like about the caverns is... More

Family of 4 with 85 yr old. This half mile walking tour is slow paced and accessible to those able to walk of slightly uneven pavement with minimal steps. Excellent fit for our family.

This is a very good place to visit for an hour or so especially with kids. Its smaller than some place like Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, but excellent. The price is much better and there are coupons available in the vacation booklets or on line. My wife and I took our two grandsons to visit. The tour guide was very... More

We were in the back of the group and stopped to take pictures and the lights went out, constantly. We couldn't hear our tour leader and she seemed to want to rush us through. I would have preferred waiting for the start of another tour, had I known what to expect. I would definitely seek another set of caverns in... More
