Been to several other caverns but this one is the best! Value is very good. $14.00 for a tour that takes about 1 1/2 hours to go through. The guide takes his time to do the tour while explaining how the family that owns it discovered as kids many years ago. The room u walk around 100 yards across and... More

4 of our group went down into the cave. It was interesting and easy walking once you were down but you do have to go down and consequently at the end up quite a few stairs so wear comfy shoes and make sure you are OK with that. But it's worth the trip down. Lots to see. Some large rooms.... More

We had a wonderful tour of the Tuckaleechee caverns. Had been to that area several times without going. It was worth the trip. We had a smaller group and were able to take our time and ask questions.

This cave is a great day trip, not only is the ride scenic but the cave is unbelievable. It takes a couple of hours to go through the cave but is well worth the effort. The history of the cave is equally impressive as well. It is rare to experience a place like this and strongly recommend this.

Absolutely stunning! The best cavern in the Smoky Mountains. Friendly staff, very personable tour guides and fair prices. The hike through the cavern was easy and very visually pleasing. Make sure to have your camera ready because it is impressive!

My family and I visited this cavern and it was wonderful. Then though there was steps to decline and climb. It was not a problem for anybody in the party. The guide was great with everyone and very entertaining. The water thru-out the cavern was great to listen to and before getting half way thru the tour, several of us... More

He was a retiree that enjoyed doing this throughout... More
