We booked a tour time the day before which is a good idea. Our guide had a wonderful personality, good knowledge of the cave formations and history. The tour was 90 minutes and the temperatures are cool 50 to 52 degrees Fahrenheit. A jacket is...More

Tour was good but didn't get much of a chance to take photos. It's 50 degrees year round in the cave but a light jacket is fine. If you are a bigger person, think twice as there are parts of the tour where you have...More
