Been to a few caverns and this one is pretty good. Tour guide was knowledgeable and made some fun jokes. Always important to remember it’s 52 degrees and wet, so watch for dripping water and wear sneakers or boots. Tour takes about 45 minutes. Some...More

Did the tour today, and it was a great day out. The tours seem to leave on the quarter hour. 3:15 or 3:45. The more it rains the more dripping and puddles you will find in the cavern. There are at least six rooms. The...More

My family and I truly enjoyed this little tour, it was just enough for us, and the kids, age 6 and 9. I recommend wearing comfortable (tennis) shoes, as there are 71 steps to get down to the entrance of the taverns..oh, and 71 steps...More

For a small, family owned experience, this was good. The tour guides are fun and knowledgeable and the cavern itself is pretty impressive. Don’t know what this is like in a busy day, but it was well worth the trip and the money.

This tour was really great and the tour guide made the walk through really fun and interesting. The temperature inside is 52 degrees all year round and it’s a perfect temperature to be in, in the winter or summer.

It really depends on how your children are feeling that day and how focused they are. It also depends on how big a bucket you get for the gem part. I'd estimate at least 45 - 60 minutes for both, with up to another hour of... More
