“Just what we were hoping for”
Only the truly adventurous ( and fit ) should consider this four-hour guided tour of one of Carlsbad Caverns' most captivating caves. Involves crawling through tight spaces, walking on slippery surfaces and getting dirty.

First of all, do this tour, you will be glad you did. The Hall of the White Giant tour was challenging but not impossible; it felt a bit dicey at times, but just enough to make you feel like you accomplished something when you made...More

Not for the feint of heart this tour was awesome! We crawled through tight holes and climbed up using rope! It was a strenuous tour, I was tired after it.

Ranger Mark and Casey (sp?) were great. They will lock up your wallet and keys in a room while you go on the tour. You need 3 batteries per person. They provide the helmet with light, gloves and knee pads. Wear something long sleeved and...More

Everything in the cave is pretty neat, but this was my wife's favorite part of the Big Room. Great formations, and to know how long it took to form it is impressive.

This is a tough and intense tour. It really does live up to it's "very strenuous" rating. I consider myself pretty claustrophobic, and I almost chickened out in the first 60 seconds, but I am glad I stuck to it. What an amazing experience. I...More

3/4 of a mile in and back out the same route. Much of that (maybe 200 yards) is on your belly -- not on your hands and knees. Be in shape and don't be claustrophobic. Only 8 people per week are "privileged" to go on...More
