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

Our tour guide was great. He was very informative and did not rush us thru the tour. It is amazing what God has created no matter where it is on this earth. We really enjoyed the tour, our 13 year on the other hand was not impressed but he's not impressed with much of anything these days. Not for younger... More

Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed coming here on a rainy, cool Monday (9 Nov 2015). I had been here in 1995 and remembered being awed by the huge wall of white onyx and wanted to visit here again. One of the ladies in our group loves visiting caverns and was looking forward to learning about this site. We were... More

I am always amazed at the creations God put upon this earth, and under it as well. This was an interesting trip say the least. Very informative staff. Good for a one time, or maybe two trip.

The temperature inside is awesome in the summer. Kids love the adventure and stories told along the way. So few caves around it's worth the visit.
