Very interesting caverns and off the beaten track. The pleasant, scenic drive to get there is half the fun. Well run tours that are very informative, entertaining and educational. Nice grounds too for relaxing.

This is a great (and easy) introduction to cavern exploration. If you have never been to a cave or if you have avoided them because of claustrophobia, this is the tour for you! Although there are a couple of narrow openings, most "rooms" are large...More

Is the tour OK for people that aren't highly mobile but can walk modest inclines and climb a few stairs at a time?
