If you are looking for a cave to take the little kids with the cool light show and neat formations, THIS IS NOT IT. However, if you want to see a cave like it was before electricity and one that is frankly still alive for the majority of it, go here. The appearance of the gift shop/ticketcounter/pool hall is a...

I was part of this morning's Adventure Tour, a once-per-month $50 tour down to and through the muddy lower level of Cascade Caverns. What an awesome, memorable experience. I doubt I'll ever forget it. And since there's only one other review on here that tackles this specific tour, I'll explain it a bit for those who are interested. First things... More

Went after viewing natural bridge caverns. These are very rustic. Not your typical tourist trap. Not dug out and developed. We went when the water table had risen and the cavern was partially flooded. No electrical power, we viewed it by flashlight. A great experience!!!! Well worth the drive from SanAntonio. A true cavern experience. Want to return and do... More

I was wondering what we got ourselves into, the place is in the middle of nowhere, and is very simple. However, we really enjoyed the tour of the caverns. The guide was great. After floods in May, the cave lighting is out, but touring with flash lights was a fun experience. Worth the stop.

The staff were polite, friendly and concerned for safety for everyone. Go the potty first, drink water before you go, and be prepared for a wonderful experience. Some of the best and fastest growing formations I have ever seen: the soda straws grow in about 5 years due to the amount of water moving through the cavern. The adventure tour... More

What an experience. I have seen several cave systems throughout my life and I was totally impressed with this system. The staff was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I would highly recommend this visit to anyone in the Boerne area.

Located just outside of San Antonio. Cascade Caverns are not for everybody, do not go there if you are afraid of narrow rocks, to go beneath the surface, darkness or underground walking. But go there if you want to se something you will never forget and see the underground waterfall.

My husband and I love exploring caves and caverns. We were pleasantly surprised when we found this gem. Our tour guide was a knowledge young lady, and had a good sense of humour. We were handed flashlights and a good time. Lots of water and some mud, so wear some good shoes that you don't mind getting a little dirty.... More

The caverns weren't bad, not the best ive seen, not the worst. The buildings were decapitated, and needed some major work. The employee who we paid told us there were so many steps and part of the cavern was so low. My brother in law asked if he could make it and the employee said "I don't know, can you?".... More

Here is a response from our manager: Three guys came in and one weighed at least 350 pounds. After I told them about the stairs, the larger man asked is he could make it and I responded with "I don't know, can you?". As you know, this is the normal question we ask of a person of a certain age... More
