This was our first trip to Great Basin NP and Lehman Caves was what I was looking forward to the most. Sometimes when I do this, a place falls short of my expectations. Lehman Caves exceeded mine.
The cost of the 90 min Grand Palace Tour was only $10 per adult. There is a discount for seniors and Golden Pass members. Anyhow, it's well worth the cost of a couple cups of "fancy" coffee. They also limit the number of people in the group.
Our guide, Debbie, was fantastic. She made the tour interesting, funny and educational. Photos are allowed, which is great, but they honestly do not do justice to the beauty of nature's artwork.
We didn't see any bats :( I hope they are ok.
They recommend you bring a jacket, as it's colder in the caves. I believe they said temperatures are around 50 degrees F. I was worried my light coat wouldn't be enough, but with a t-shirt underneath, I was fine. Many people had shorts on and light coats, and seemed fine. If you do tend to be a colder person, bring something heavier just in case. Flashlights are allowed, but if you forget yours, don't worry, there's enough lighting in the caves and the guide brings a couple.
I highly recommend this tour. You've got to be a pretty grumpy person to not be impressed by the wonders nature and time can create.
