Very nice tour

The guided tour is very informative. It was nice to be cold on a hot day. Very enjoyable if you have the time while in the area.

Finally had a few days of vacation, visiting family in this beautiful area. Having seen the caverns advertised we had to go. It had been years since I've been in any. Great experience! Not a difficult walk, a few tricky spots. I'm not the most physically fit but had no problems. But wear shoes! Several people (guys and gals) wore... More

Arrived about 10 minutes to closing and was told we were just in time for the last tour. In all there were about twelve people on this tour and it took about an hour give or take a few minutes.

The cave was nice, walk was about a mile. It has 50 steps and a steep ramp but it wasn't bad. You may want a jacket, about 50* in there.

We just so happen to be staying up the mountain a bit from this attraction and stumbled upon it by chance. They provide an informative 1 hour tour that goes pretty quickly. It's 58 degrees down there so bring a sweater, but we'll worth the stop!

It was a welcome break from the heat and the formations were interesting and info given from the guide were informative but for the money it was just ok. Tour lasts just under the hour.

We really enjoyed our visit. Bonus: the cool temperature inside the cavern was a blessing on the 95 degree day we visited! Our guide was personable and very knowledgeable and encouraged questions from visitors. A very nice way to spend an afternoon and learn some very interesting information about geology.

It's just another tourist cave attraction! Colored lights are on the tour in the cave. But it's just a tourist cave! No big deal! Not worth the money!
