Outstanding!
May 2021
Stopped at Diamond Cavern as a last minute idea while heading back from Mammoth Cave National Park and it did not disappoint! Our guide, John, was great and toured us through this truly beautiful place. We had no plan to stop here, but had missed the tours for Mammoth that day, and we took a chance and Diamond Cavern was well worth the trip. Pictures do not do it justice. While the the cave tour path is a finished trail, dress accordingly - you are hiking and it is cool and very wet. I do not recommend this for kids under the age of 8. Those we saw lost patience and interest very quickly and then so did their parents.

Great Experience!
May 2021 • Family
We stopped at Diamond Cave when visiting Mammoth Cave NP last weekend. I heard it was a “must see” stop and it was. Our “fun size” tour guide Elizabeth was great. Don’t worry she called herself fun size. We had toured Mammoth cave earlier that day and I was amazed at how different both caves we toured were so close together. What I enjoyed most was the small tour group, we had 21 and that was a larger group. My family (including my 11 year old daughter) asked question and Elizabeth was always energetic and happy to help answer them. It was great having someone tell us all about the cave and the history of the cave and the area. The tour never felt rushed. If in the area don’t forget to make a stop at Diamond Cave we are so glad we did. One of my kids said this tour was her favorite part of our weekend.

BEST TOURS
Mar 2021
Booked a tour at Diamond Caverns. Easily walked into the gift shop to get tickets for the next tour. They had reduced numbers for tours and COVID precautions were taken. Everyone had to wear a mask and the tour guide Elizabeth was not shy about reminders that people would get kicked off the tour if they did not keep their mask on over mouth and nose. I really appreciate that.

It was a really great cave experience and learned a lot about Diamond Caverns and the cave wars.

Extremely Rushed Tour
Mar 2021
My mother and I visited Diamond Caverns, along with Mammoth Cave and Crystal Onyx Cave during our trip. We were very disappointed with our experience at Diamond Caverns. The cave is absolutely beautiful. However, the tour seemed very rushed the entire time. If you only want to take one picture of the scenery and quickly walk by, then it'd be fine for you, but if you want to look around, enjoy the scenery, and take some pictures of you and your family while in the cave, you will not have time for that. They advertise they allow flash photography....yet don't allow any time for pictures. All I wanted was to get a few photos of myself with my mother in the cave, and while attempting to take some photos the guide immediately told us we had to keep up with the group. No one else in our tour group cared to take any pictures, so us stopping for one picture was enough for the guide to tell us we had to keep up with the group. Of course being rushed, our photo turned out blurry, and we left without any decent pictures of us in the cave. I realize this may not be important for everyone, but it was important for us, and the fact that we couldn't even get one good photo of us in the cave was incredibly disappointing. We weren't looking to do a photoshoot, we simply only wanted to be able to get a few pictures, and make sure they turned out. At the beginning of the tour they warn you that you must keep up with the group....we didn't realize that the group walks so fast you can't even stop for one photo.

Later the same day we went to Crystal Onyx Cave, and had an amazing experience. The guides were extremely patient and let us take plenty of photos.

If you want any photos of you and your family in the cave, then I would not recommend Diamond Caverns, as you will be told to keep up as they rush you through the tour as fast as possible.

Unfortunate to hear you felt rushed. Wish we had known on the day and time so we could talk to our guide and make sure they are keeping the pace as they were trained to do. For anyone else reading this, we offer a 1 hour guided tour. 350 stairs throughout and a 1/2 mile walk total.

This is the most beautiful cave we visited! It is smaller but breathtaking for sure. Lots of stairs so not for those who have trouble going up or down. Much smaller tour group than Mammoth. I can't suggest this place enough. This is what I thought of when I think of "cave"!

Yeah.... Just Don’t
Jan 2021 • Friends
I wish I read some of the Negative Reviews. The managers responses are terrible. The tour is mediocre at best, because it’s just not a fun cave. Too many steps, high humidity and nothing to see. With a name of Diamond Caverns, you expect pretty or shiny... nope. Just Orangy Brown and narrow and steep and uncomfortable. There’s seriously nothing to see. There must be a reason they say no refunds. Too many people probably ask. They really don’t understand the accommodation part of doing a tour. We got there at 9 AM in case there was a crowd. Basically we’re the only ones there till 9:45. They opened with about 10 people there waiting at 10am then we had to wait till 10:45am to start the tour. The even worse part is the tour. You walk into the cave to a dead end about 80 ft under and the just retrace to steps back. There isn’t any sightful attraction. There must be better attractions.

Our tour isn't for everyone. Luckily we have tens of thousands of happy visitors come through our cave yearly. We have thousands of formations throughout our cavern. We do suggest on Holiday or Summer weekends arriving early for the tour, since tickets are sold as first come first served. Our hours of operation and tour times are posted on our website for anyone interested.

Amazing experience! Best cave formations in the area! Our tour guide Allison was awesome as well! She was well informed and able to answer our many questions. We were even able to see some cave crickets. Thank you Allison!

Beautiful formations, very knowledgeable guides
Oct 2020
We were fortunate enough to stop by Diamond Caverns while visiting Mammoth Cave. Due to Covid restrictions, a lot of the tours in Mammoth Cave were closed, so we were a bit disappointed in what we saw. Diamond Caverns certainly filled in that gap.

Our guide explained how the various formations were formed by the water that is still dripping from the ceiling, and how several of them were broken during the "cave wars" in the area. The stories of both the natural and human history in the area really helped to make us fell a connection to the spaces we were walking through.

Since you're taking the time to read this review, you've no doubt also seen pictures of the cavern online. The pictures likely don't do it justice. The formations are beautful - and where else can you see where a stalgmite has been cut off to reveal the inner structures? The tour is not long or strenuous and is definitely worth your time while you are in the area.
