The whole experience was very pleasant and fun and it is a nice little cave. I would have rated one notch higher if it weren't for the Audio! It sounds like they bought a second hand system from a defunct 1950's drive-in movie! Invest a little money in a decent sound system and get a recording that is a little... More

Weve been to other caverns in the area, these I think, are the best ones by far. Our tour guide was attentive and very informed. We caught the last tour of the day, so there were only 5 of us, which made it nicer because it was less crowded and less noisy in the caverns. We got to see such... More

There were good parts of the tour but I would have liked to be able to move at my own pace. There were some screaming children on the tour I was on...by children I actually mean teenage boys. Seeing the white onyx and the old replica of the moonshine distillery down in the cave was cool and actually seeing what... More

We toured these caverns during a waterfall tour we did with our 2 young kids. The cavern was nicely lit, it taught the children some history on moonshiners and was enjoyed by all of us. The cost was reasonable, they do have some pretty good formations and they have a little gift shop to pick up souvenirs. If riding through... More

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
