I has a mild case of Claustrophobia and I had it thru these caves with no issues at all. It was a great experience.

This is a great little cave to explore! Its not too far from Pigeon Forge up a side road a great place to escape summer heat or crowds in town. The staff are super nice and friendly and went out of their way to help and answer questions. I recommend this attraction for any age group.

This was a lot neater than we anticipated. We have a 16 and 9 yr old and everyone enjoyed it. The hosts are very kind and we enjoyed the whole tour.

Best part of our trip to Pigeon Forge! Beautiful drive to the caverns with a great pull off spot to take pictures by the creek. Wonderful tour guide and gift shop. Nice history lesson surrounded by the amazing formations of the underground world. Would definitely visit again!

Cave is beautiful and could be a really cool experience if the guides were not so hokey. We wanted to learn something, hear true history and science but this is not the case here. I gave it a three for cool formations.

Single mom with teenager...we loved this cave! Our tour guide girl was fantastic! Very informative and funny! The tour was lengthy so it felt like we got our monies worth. Super clean restrooms and all of the staff was super sweet and had great attitudes!

If you have never experienced a Cavern before. Then Go it is pretty cool. But be advised you can not take any pictures inside. There is always some fool that ruins it for everybody else. So, once again it happened in a cave. But, don't let that stop you. Reasonable price for the experience Look for discount coupons that are... More
