“Great Tour Guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Susan was the best tour guide. We loved our tour of Ruby falls and even tho we were rushed once we got to the Falls, we still love seeing this and enjoy the walk down throught the caves. It was a good time.

“Awesome falls - well worth the trek to get there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Yes it is very commercial and if you have been down caves before you won't learn a lot about the formations - the whole trip is about the waterfall. And is it worth it just for that - well yesit absolutely is. The falls are just awesome with the natural rock formations around them. Yes you only get a limited amount of time at the falls but it is plenty to enjoy them and take a thousand pictures. So I would strongly recommend you go and be patient until you get to the main attraction. We had Megan as a guide and she was great with a quirky sense of humour.

“exploring a cave”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

the falls was only one fall and not much water at that. weather and current rainfall have something to do with that I was told.
pathway is slippery in places. Not worth the 1 mi. walk

“Was ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Found this place to be very commercialized. Groups are way too large and when you make it to the fall they tell you, you got seven minutes to look and thats it the lights go off. You have to wait while groups to come by at least three times. The tour guide was just ok. Enjoyed raccoon mountain caverns much more.
