Very interesting and educational. You are taken on a boat ride through a cave. In order to get to the cave you have to walk down a steep embankment. Not too bad until you return and walk up the same way. I wouldn't recommend it...More

We had a wonderful time on the tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, which was nice. I like that they have a Facebook page that they keep updated with information, such as whether or not the tours will be running. That was very helpful....More

We had a wonderful tour. It is off the beaten path but worth the drive. The history of the caves and owners was interesting. The tour guide did a great job and was very knowledgeable.

Agree with other reviewers... they had some guides very, very passionate about the tour in which you experience brief total darkness, amazing echos, and basically an experience like you've never experienced before. I stopped in here on a road trip.

Great place to go. Kids really enjoyed panning for gems. We all enjoyed the tour. Take a jacket or sweater because it is cool in the caves. Also, it is a bit of a walk to reach the caves. It's straight downhill and uphill for...More

I would say the bigger kids would have a blast! My concern would be for the 3 year old. The walk is steep and the boat ride boredom may sit in. So bottom line I don't think the 3 year old would last the boat ride part of... More
