Was a great experience. Cool place to visit with some history to it! Underground river which looks so awesome. Well worth the drive. Advice: wear tennis shoe.

Fascinating beauty!
Aug 2021
On a hot day it was nice to spend an hour exploring this cave. Our grandson especially liked it; he is 11. There are many beautiful sights to see and guides a!ong the way to answer questions. It's not a "must see" but it is worth seeing.

Just so so, not worth the money
Jul 2021 • Family
While overall was interesting to see, just not worth the money. Is about 45 min walk no real guides. If you have ever seen a cavern before you will be really disappointed, we have never been and I would overal just not do it again or recommend.

Lackluster and pricey.
Jul 2021 • Family
The cavern is beautiful.

It is small and the price seems excessive.

The lady that sold us our tickets was very discourteous. Finding the caverns fascinating, I asked her if there was literature I could read about the history. In the middle of my question, she aggressively reiterated that the stationed guides would present that information. Unfortunately, the information given during the tour was superficial.

This could be so much more than what it is.

Beautiful cave, not for little kids or elders
Jul 2021 • Family
This tour was very fun. Maybe someone of a really young age (5 or something) wouldn’t enjoy it, but maybe higher ages would like it. It has really beautiful sights like rivers, caverns, holes, etc. However, you have to be very careful when walking there multiple downhill parts and steps so maybe elderly people shouldn’t go. I enjoyed it though so 4/5

Interesting to see on a rainy or hot day
Jul 2021
My teenage son saw an advertisement for this, and thought it would be fun, and I'm always game for something different. It was interesting and neat to see. It is a self-guided tour with guides periodically throughout the cave. The guides were informative and told a lot about the caves. We got there at 10:45am hoping to beat the crowds (it opens at 10:00), but it was already busy. It was crowded, and basically a chain of people walking through the caves. The lights on the limestone helped to make them easier to see and added nice effects. We took about an hour to go through it, which was long enough.

Of all the cave/ spelunking I have done it rates low as the Kentucky down under added cave tour except on its own with no added experience. There are far better cave tours you can take even the 45 min drive to the tuskaluici (probably misspelled) caverns. They offer a 15 minute tour at a much higher rate vs quality cave adventure. Also as a gift shop they only catered to cheap imported junk designed for children or the most lax of tourists. There are far better things to spend hard earned money on than this travesty. In my personal opinion mammouth, diamond, horse, and even the misspelled aforementioned are a way better alternative. Please do not waste money here.

Beautiful Cave, but rushed.
Jul 2021 • Family
My family enjoyed the tour through the cave. It was more interesting than what I thought. I enjoyed the history and the story about the caves. My teen kids also liked the cave. Make sure to wear good shoes, it’s wet in some places and a little muddy. It’s cool, 58 degrees, I believe. Some ppl had on long sleeves. The tour lasts about an hour. I wasn’t sure how I would do being that I am no where in shape and somewhat claustrophobic. I was worried about small or enclosed spaces, but there really wasn’t any. There are several up hill steps and down hill steps that can be difficult on someone who has any walking issues. There are not always hand rails to pull yourself up or lean on.

I felt rushed through the cave. I think if there are smaller groups it would be better. Our guide was very sarcastic. I’m not sure if she had a bad day or hated the job? Another group was coming in as we were coming out. I would have liked to have not felt hurried or rushed.

Impressive small caves/Self guided tour
Jul 2021 • Couples
This totally reminded me of the ATM caves at Mexico, just in miniature version. It was not strenuous at all and the guides in the cave offers information about the moonshiners and the formation of the limestone. It was inexpensive and impressive!
