We visited with friends on a weekday and were pleasantly surprised how nice and quiet it was. You start your walk (decent) down a series of many many stairs (1,000 total I believe!) to the first cave that you can explore. There are lots of different caves along the way but they are a little tight so not great if... More

Allow for about two hours for this attraction. It takes you through nice paved / steps paths through the gorge, around bouldersand trees and gives you an opportunity to climb into some caves. The walk is good for the all skill levels, the caves vary in skill level. Nice attraction but cost $18 per adult. Worth a visit but not... More

We spent 2hours here enjoying every moment. The boardwalks and stairs made it easy to ascend and descend. The caves were interesting and some were pretty tight. Some caves were closed because the water level was too high. The carved bears were gorgeous and very realistic. Beautiful lush trees and scenery.

We went in the middle of July on a Saturday in the middle of the day. Lots of crowds. It was fun but would have been much more fun if there were less people. The caves themselves actually got crowded and we felt like we had to rush through them rather than take our time and enjoy the experience. Yeah... More

We visited several Gorges during our US trip and while others had better views and more reasonable entrance price the kids loved this one the most. The caves made the difference - they insisted to enter every cave (there are many) on the walk. The Gorge itself is beautiful, well maintained, the path is very convenient, signs on the way... More

The attraction itself is wonderful. But if you get there at the wrong time of day or year the crowds are terrible. It requires allot of stair climbing and willingness to explore. Except for the rude visitors it is great. We can say we did it, but won't be going back. Not cheap.

We spent half a day here, it was truly beautiful. We even managed the 1000 steps! It was truly a wonderful experience. We didn't go in any of the caves, but our grandson loved them!

Great family oriented venue. All the little caves are great to venture through although most are small and you have to crawl on your knees. Once inside though, fantastic sights! Gorge is beautiful too. All in all, very fun time!

My girlfriend and I did both the day and night and it was amazing both times. We discovered a new rock formation during the day cause of how the shadows were. Would highly recommend going if your looking for a fun time!

Our family of 9 recently visited the caves and had a wonderful time. Our three and a half year old led the pack and was thrilled with each cave, "helping" us all, especially through the Lemmon squeezer. There was information along the way and a question card to answer for a prize. (The prize was a postcard of the Lemmon... More
