I am so proud to have done this at 64. It was beyond very strenuous but I managed. I did upper body training but wish I’d done more. I belly crawled in my back yard but wish I’d done it on my gravel driveway. If...More

This past weekend's adventure was such a blast! This is 6 hours of exploring remote passages and tunnels. We got to squeeze into spots where you had to exhale before wiggling through. Other spots you had to rock climb your way from one shadowy room...More

The tour is very well organized. It is more like an introduction to caving with a taste of each common caving scenario. We also get to see a few famous spots in Mammoth Cave, though. The tour guides are not very patient in allowing us...More

Did this tour with my two teenage boys (must be 16 years old to go). This was big fun. 6 hours in the cave with lots of belly crawls through small passages (the "birth canal" was a personal favorite), walking across ledges over cave canyons,...More
