Great experience going underground to view the cave. Our knowledgeable guide took her time and showed lots of interesting features. We also did the hike around the property. Short, easy hike with a great view of the area.

Pick a different cave!

Very cool cave but ruined by atrocious tour guide who had the impression we were there to see him... he wasn't very knowledgable about his cave and attempted to make up for it with his own comedy routine. Then to cut the awkward tension our guide accused us of having poor senses of humor. I went to a cave to learn about the amazing branson area, not to be insulted...

The cave is amazing. Rocky, the young man who was our guide, is polite, knowledgeable, funny, accommodating and a great host.

Arriving to the caverns setting is beautiful. Grounds are clean, parking is ample and ADA friendly. Definitely a place for family, a date, or a solo adventure. Do wear sturdy shoes and comfortable walking wear. The grounds include activities for kids of all ages including mini golf, small playspace and sluice box area for 'panning'. The gift shop has some great fossil and stone specimens and cute thoughtful gifties. The nature walk gives a great hiking experience in the Ozarks up close - do take water. The hike signs and kiosks are well placed avoiding missed turns. The main jewel is the cavern. Great friendly knowledgeable guides (Taylor) walked us through well lit paths allowing the views up close as well as the wide views as could be taken of the magnificent formations through the walk. Allow yourself some time to enjoy all this gem has to offer.

Absolutely fascinating! Definitely recommend. Reasonable pricing, great guided tour. Wear good shoes as you will be walking up and down and sometimes in water.

We are glad you enjoyed your guided tour and we appreciate your recommendation! Our area received several inches of rainfall overnight so the cave was a bit wetter than usual. Thanks for your review!

Nice Tour

The guide was excellent and did a nice job explaining everything in under an hour. The path is steep and can be slippery so wear proper shoes. The caverns are really cool to see and worth the visit.

This is a beautiful cave and Chuck was a great guide.

This is a beautiful cave and Chuck was a great guide. It is a very wet cave so the formations are abundant and beautiful. Absolutely one of the best caves we have toured. If you can take the tour with Chuck, he provides so much insight with his 19 years of experience with the cave.

Thanks for stopping by for a cave tour! Sounds like you came after a heavy rain; the cave has a unique beauty when this happens! We greatly appreciate the compliments you shared about the cave as well as your guide, Chuck! We think both are pretty amazing, too! ;)

Great experience!
Aug 2021 • Family
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Talking Rocks Cavern. We went with 4 adults and 3 kids (ages 7-9). We were happy the energetic littles were back with grandma and grandpa because it would not have been fun trying to help them navigate through.

The temperature was comfortable throughout, which was great on a 98 degree day. If you have serious knee problems or have a hard time navigating through narrow spaces, I would not recommend. It was amazing though being down in the cave. Our tour guide was FANTASTIC (he even ran through the cave a second time because we thought we lost a credit card). He always made sure we could all see whatever he was talking about and made us all comfortable. It was beautiful and mesmerizing being down in the cave and seeing Gods creation.

The kids really enjoyed the SpeleoBox mazes as well...such a unique experience. We have not done any other cave tours as a family but would love to experience other ones in the area.

The caves were beautiful, and the 14 year old guide was awesome. If you have asthma or are out of shape, this will test you coming back up! It was great though!
