This tour was the highlight of our cross-country roadtrip! We were a bit nervous at first because the idea of being "trapped" underground for 6 hours seemed a bit much, but the tour doesn't seem like it's 6 hours long. It's super adventurous & not...More

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

I love caves, and was so excited to do this... but to be honest, this enthusiasm was also mixed with pure panic in the weeks and days leading up to our scheduled tour! I wasn't sure how I'd react to tight spaces... and I AM...More

This tour was so different than I expected! After a short briefing we really just hit the caves, starting by crawling through. There were tight squeezes, amazing views, underground waterfalls, the works. This tour is definitely strenuous- I am a fit and active mid 20s,...More

I was really nervous about doing this, as I am afraid of confined spaces, but our guides, Ethan and Autumn, expertly guided us through all the challenges. As other reviews stated, you have to be in pretty good physical form to do this--there are long...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
