The tour of this cave greatly exceeded our expectations. It was so awesome to see and hear the story behind it. Jill was our tour guide and she was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We have already decided to visit the cave again on our next trip to the mountains!

Tuckaleechee Caverns is breathtaking. It's MASSIVE inside, and the tour guides have a vast wealth of knowledge that gives this cave so much more meaning than just a cool sight to see. It is well worth the price of admission and provides a cool way to escape the afternoon heat, especially in the summer. It's also relatively easy walking since... More

Our guide was so knowledgeable about this cavern and her enthusiasm was wonderful. There are lots of steps so wear comfortable walking shoes. Floor was a little slippery in some spots. Such a beautiful place and worth it to take the time to visit.

The tour was great and full of information. This is great for kids and adults as long as you can walk lots of steps. 205 steps down and 205 step back up. Not all at once and there are lots of ramps and walkways. There is some low passages and steep steps. I recommend this place for a fun few... More

Spencer gave an excellent tour of the cavern. If you are near it has a neat history and has some beautiful cave formations. Really enjoyed the waterfall.

We had a great time visiting Tuckaleechee Caverns. We learned a lot about how they were first discovered and our guide was very knowledgeable. It is 58 degrees year around in the cavern so if you get cold easy I would suggest a lite coat or sweat shirt. There are a ton of stairs and walking so if you have... More

Went there with wife and 2 teenaged kids. Had fun. Our guide Terry was very informative and funny at the same time. I'm 6'4 and son is 6'2 had to watch ourselves from hitting our heads at some low spots but had a great time.
