My wife, daughter, and I were on a road trip and spent some time in the Black Hills of South Dakota. One of the tours we took was to the Black Hills Caverns. We were greeted immediately upon entering the main office and treated very well. I was instantly impressed with the staff! We met our tour guide, Sena. She... More

Really enjoyed the experience here. I considered other caves in the Black Hills and settled on this. Was pleasantly surprised at how much area the tour covered. There are two options (30 or one hour) and we did the longer tour which covered all the levels. The guide Blake was very knowledgeable and funny and ultimately made the tour enjoyable.... More

The location is just up the street from the 1880 train tourist shops and restaurants. The motel was clean, but the carpet was needed a good shampooing. The room smelled musty, we are assuming it had something to do with the air unit. The pool was a nice size, but wayyy too much chlorine. Also if you are staying here... More

We just had to get a cave tour into our Black Hills visit, and this was the one we chose, on our last day. Excellent choice, it turned out, as we were travelling with a couple of kids, ages four and 10. No daunting stairways or dangerous passages. Easily navigable by all. We opted for the shortest, easiest tour, hence... More

When I first found the place and drove in I wondered how popular of a place it was...definitely not as busy as other tourist attractions... However in the end it was very enjoyable! It was neat to see that it was all young guys and gals giving the tours. Brr cold cave and nothing spectacular in the area of formations... More

Our tour guild was great we took the long tour and the kids loved it. They were also able to touch of of the crystals and you know that is the best thing for kids is to get to feel something they are not use to seeing. It was amazing you should really make sure you go here!

I visited the cave with a friend and we chose to take the longer of the two tours. The cave was magnificent but what really brought the experience together was our tour guide Hannah. A must see if your in the area.

We had a terrific time. Our guide was so helpful and loved children. My daughter had a fun first cave experience. I have been in several caves before but my knees were bothering me so I chose this one to take my daughter as it has a fairly easy one hour tour. I highly recommend this family owned attraction.
