This is a small cave that offers a self guided and narrated tour. It's perfect for small children or people who might have a hard time standing/walking for long periods of time because you can go at your own pace. The owners were very nice and went out of their way to offer good service. Unfortunately, the property has gone... More

Not the biggest cave we've ever visited but it was unusual. The tour was only 20 minutes or so, guided by headphones and recordings. The entrance is at the lower end and you ascend into the cave. Visitors are encouraged to take photos inside. The temperature is nice and cool on a hot day.

The beauty of the chambers of the cave. I could walk for hours in this cave just to see what is just around the next stalactite/stalagmite or otherwise Column.

This cave is small and has been neglected for a long time. To start there is no button and doll museum. Second, they change their hours daily and write the times on a poster taped to a door on your way down to the gift shop. This makes it hard to plan ahead. Third, they are using headphones to guide...

What I saw - and heard through the headphones on the self-guided tour - was fascinating, but the combination of damp, uneven floor and claustrophobic headphones was too much for me so I chickened out part-way down. Husband and son were impressed, though.

Small & quaint. A self paced tour with earphones that took approximately 30 mins. We enjoyed it; very reasonably priced.

I drove here after reading all the reviews. Very much looking forward to the visit. The gentleman booking me in was very helpful and friendly. Then when I hand over my card for payment, he tells me that he can't take it. So no visit for me. And it's a long climb back up the ramp I can tell you.... More

It was a HOT day so we decided to visit this little cave. It's a steep walk down to where the cave entrance is. You have a headset and tour the little cave at your own pace. We loved this!! It was a pretty cave and took us about 20 minutes. But it was a nice break from the heat.... More

Self guided tour. 2 adults was about $16 if I remember correctly. Very interesting history. They provide head phones that explain things to you along the way.

We enjoyed the tour as it was interesting to see all the shapes and forms of rock. No too tiring of a walk and the temperature in the cave was cool.
