I have been here multiple times as a kid and now as a adult bringing my children. I recommend this to anyone. As the pathways through the caves are relatively smooth and wide, this place is ideal for children as young as 3 in my opinion. They also have a nice gift shop and offer seasonal train rides for kids/adults... More

On an impulse we stopped to check out the caverns. Great tour and different from others in the area. We were fortunate to have a small group, but the tour would be great no matter the size. We were able to get on the next tour when we arrived on New Years Day 2016.

I have been to Skyline several times. We love to go on cave tours, and frequently pick a vacation spot based on the tours available. Skyline is one of my favorite caves because of the unique crystals. I take pictures every time I go but they don't do justice to the in person experience. On the last trip we took... More

Cavern tour was great. I have been in a good number of caves big and small and still never get tired of the experience. Our tour guide Joe was very knowledgeable about the history of the caverns, but his jokes were a bit corny. Not as visually stunning as some other caves I have been in, but I did enjoy... More

We were looking for something to do on a Sunday afternoon and decided to visit the caverns. We were the only ones on our tour. Our guide was John and he was very knowledgeable. The caverns were beautiful. I am always a little sad to see evidence of man-made changes, but how else could they allow tours in the caves.... More

We were a group of 2 adults and 2 children. There is a long staircase to get to the main floor which you will need to carry a stroller down. I believe they said it is not a wheelchair accessible area, but you may want to check on that prior to going. The floors are wet in some areas, so... More
