Very nice tour to take, Especially if you had not booked a tour ahead of time at Mammoth Cave. Intimate and informative tour of caverns. Great history and excellent for photos. There are some steps 350 total but spread out fairly well.

If you are in the Mammoth Cave area, you’ve seen the big cave, and you feel like more caves, this is a good one. It’s a different “style” of cave from Mammoth, so they look nothing alike. This one has more wet formations, such as...More

You definitely won't have enough the wait here you'll have at Mammoth and this is an active cave. Several formations you can touch due to them being cut off before laws preventing that. The cut formations are interesting to see the cross sections.

Beautiful cave and great tour for families with children, the time length of tour is long/short enough to keep the kids attention. Fairly moderate stress for some due to all the stairs otherwise Nice
