“Very beautiful! Great for the kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The tour was informative, the tour guide interacted well with our kids, and the formations were breathtaking! We made a trek during our trip to the Ozarks to check this out. I think my 7 and 4 year old will remember it because of how much they are still talking about it. There were so many beautiful formations and my little ones still remember the difference between stalagmite and stalactite! We were allowed to take pictures and the group was small enough that we could ask many questions and not be a burden to the tour guide. All in all very glad that we stopped!

“Amazing Formations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

If you like cave tours, don't miss this one. Absolutely fantastic formations. Probably some of the best I've seen on a cave tour. Some are "cathedral-like." Well lit, not too bad of pathways. One spot that was kind of narrow. I don't like really tight spots too much and I was OK.

Only down side was that I would have liked a little lower price, but quite honestly, pretty comparable to a lot of attractions today. So, it's a pretty good value, but not a GREAT value. If you really like caves and geology, though, this is one you won't want to miss.

“Great Cave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Been there many times and even went as a child on our school field trips. You can have your wedding there but usually booked up far in advance. Great way to explore and get back to nature. See what the hills have to hide.

“See more formations in less time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This is a great cave with many formations in a short walk. Usually you have to take long tours to see formations in caves but this cave has it all plus the shop and history is great. A must do at the lake of the Ozarks. I have been to a lot of caves and I still rate Bridal Cave as one of the easiest fun tour caves in the nation.

“Don't miss this attraction!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

If you enjoy natural attractions and need a break from the heat this is the place to be. Many formations are not seen in smaller caves. Nice guides, great for all ages.
