The overall experience was great! The guide had a great personality and interacted very well with the kids on the tour. Our kids loved it and enjoyed the tour which lasted an hour.

Fantastic Caverns was amazing! We went on a very hot day (105F) and found the caverns to be a wonderful cool place to explore. The jeep ride through the beautiful caverns kept the attention of everyone in our party (ages 16 - 60). We had a great tour guide

Great for all ages! Kid friendly and accommodating! Staff was overwhelmingly helpful about the area. The ride into the cave was extremely interesting. Bring a sweater, or light jacket!

Visited the caverns again this year. Where else can you ride in a jeep and enjoy a beautiful cave? Nowhere!
