The history is interesting and our guide was very knowledgeable. After seeing several other caves this one is not a must see, but if you are in the area it is a complimenting visit to the bridge

We did the guided tour of the caves, which takes about an hour. The caves are very nice, and staff is very friendly. You can buy a combo ticket to also visit the natural bridge, which I would definitely recommend.

If you go to natural bridge first, save your receipt for caves for discount. You can buy a combo ticket at caves that includes natural bridge. Nice tour . Bring a sweatshirt or light jacket.
