Our tour guide was witty and informative. The cave is spectacular each and every time we come, fifth time around today!! Three other cave tours in this region, one only 15 minutes away in Corydon, IN. Tow different tours here, each one different.

Perfect place to go on a super hot day. Fairly inexpensive for both tours. The tour guide does make a huge difference in the feel and interest of the tour though. We really liked Maddie!

Took two tours today and love each one. The first tour guide, Sage was terrific! The second cave our tour guide, Brooke was also a wonderful guide. Watch out for the huge stairs. And please hold on to the handrails. Beautiful place. Highly recommend!
