Wonderful. Loved both caves and our guide and the staff were excellent. Especially enjoyed seeing the original hole that the young man dug into the cave from outside! Amazing. I can't imagine the rush he got when he stepped inside that first room.

Thank you so much for the great rating and wonderful review! Our team is exceptional and I'll be sure to share. My dad discovered Whisper Rocks as a teenager and we work hard to preserve and share his legacy with our guests each and everyday. We are truly blessed. I hope you will include other show caves in your travels. They are all unique, different, and special in their own way. Come back and see us soon!

My husband was here a child on a family vacation and suggested that we visit before we returned home to Reading. I enjoyed my visit very much. The owner was very friendly and accommodating and she had a vast knowledge of all things cave. She even stuck her head out the door to wish us a safe trip home and happy caving. You do not see that kind of treatment anymore. Our tour guide Lauren was excellent. She really cares about the cave and her passion for caves and protecting the bats was obvious. I like her sense of humor and dedication to her job as a tour guide.

We took our niece and her family to see this beautiful natural wonder on 4th of July. We realized we were going to be late for our tour so we called and they kindly moved us to a later time. Obviously, this is only possible if they’re not totally booked. I recommend booking the tour ahead of time online - they take Apple Pay. They do accept walk ins and you can call on your way to find out their availability. Our 8 year old great-niece was enthralled, as were the children (ages about 6-11?) in the other family on the tour. Us adults were impressed as well. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our guide, Zack, was incredibly knowledgeable, patient and kind, especially with the kids. He made the tour fun and interesting, and inspired me to me to write a review, which I don’t usually do! The tour was about 90 minutes, mostly because we took our time and asked lots of questions. I think you can do it in an hour. The store was full of good quality memorabilia and gifts. Our great-niece panned for gems for $6 and got a decent size bag. Here are some things to note:
Food: Store has snacks, ice cream, candy and drinks. No restaurant on site.
Bathrooms: Clean, nice facilities on site.
Parking: Easy and plentiful.
What to wear/bring: Sturdy walking shoes - caves are damp with steep stairs and uneven ground. Sweatshirt - temperature is a constant 52 degrees Fahrenheit year round. Don’t bring your big bag or backpack as there are some tight spots.
Note that the caverns are not handicap accessible - the natural pathways are too narrow and steep for ramps.
I hope you enjoy your visit as much as we did!

Our tour guide was both knowledgeable and personable. She explained interesting facts about the cave and answered questions. Any question she did not know the answer to she turned into a learning experience while iusing the internet to investigate information.

We had a great experience at Lincoln Caverns in both caves. The gift shop is large with lots of quality and reasonably priced merchandise. This is a perfect half day outing to spend with your children.

Excellent experience! Staff was very friendly. Large gift shop with many choices. The tour of the caves was great. They took their time, and answered any questions we had. Our daughter loved “panning” for gems!
