Fun quick cave visit

Great little cave, the guide was nice and entertaining. I've been to plenty of caves both commercial and not and this is a really great commercial cave.

We stayed at a cabin and these caverns were right up the road. Nice staff and wow! The caverns and history were great. Our favorite was the great room with incredible formations and nice light show. At $16 per person, it's so worth is for the awesome view!

The caverns where great. Shout out to my boy Maverick for being the best tour guy. Absolutely hilarious jokes and cool riddles made the experience that much better. If you are in the Gatlinburg area, this is a must. Great experience.

Our tour guide's name was Maverick and was extremely informative... More

There seem to be about 100 caverns in the Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia mountains, and we decided to choose one of them to visit. Tukaleechee Caverns is a little less expensive than some of the others, and it fit into the timing of our trip perfectly, so that's the one we picked. It was perfect for us - not... More

It's an awesome tour! Our family loved it, my husband said he liked this better than Mammoth Caves in Kentucky! Our tour guide Maverick was Fantastic!!!! Fun for the whole family and wonderful history behind the caverns as well. We will be coming back again next time we're in Gatlinburg.

This was a nice family experience. It is in a cave, so was cool and wet. There were plenty of lights and railings where needed for safety. Lots of cool formations and history associated with this cavern.
