This is the first trip inside caverns for my two girls and they absolutely loved it. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it as well. Preston was our tour guide and was absolutely outstanding. He was funny, informative and had a great personality. I highly recommend it for a stop for anyone wanting to see a neat site.

Had a great time with the kids plus baby today at the caverns. The shop had a unique assortment of items. Staff was very laid back and friendly. Lovely caverns with breath taking moments. Tickets were a good value based on the fact that two of our crowd got in free and we had a discount adult tickets coupon. Glad... More

We stopped by on a weekend outing. We are glad we did. The cavern was amazing! We had a wonderful tour guide name Shaq. He was so knowledgeable and funny. I would suggest anyone on vacation or driving through with an hour to spare, stop by. You will love it!

We stopped in for someing to do to help in making our daughter tired for the 6hr ride home. Got to see some great sights and enjoy our time as a family. The guy at the front in store could have been a little bit nicer but was still professional.

This small out-of-the-way cavern is a GEM! My son, grandchildren, and I were treated to a tour by Preston-- a friendly, well-informed, and fun guide. It's not so huge as Luray or Skyline, but certainly worth the relatively inexpensive admission fee, easier to tour, amd not so taxing on the attention of the grandchildren or the physical abilities of the...

I have never been to caverns before so I have nothing to compare these to, but we had a lot of fun. The tour guide was really nice, funny and very well informed. Inside the caverns is really beautiful. We were told all about it's history, how it was found, all about how stalactites and stalagmites are formed. All in... More

This is a quaint, local attraction. If you're looking for something huge, mega, epic, and so on, it won't be for you. If you're looking for something a little off the beaten path, something with some local flavor, you'll probably like it. We took a group of kids through and they really enjoyed it. The guide keeps it interesting. The... More
