This is advertised as a two hour tour, but it was over in one hour. That's the first complaint. The young lady guiding us had no experience, and was a dud. We spent a lot of time in the suite the owner wants to rent to tourists, which had nothing to do with the cave. We encountered no ghosts, no noises, no touches, nothing. They handed out little gizmos which were supposed to pick up a presence, but nothing. I understand that ghosts cannot be programmed to appear, however the guide should have told stories of past encounters at least? After half hour, she took us to the bunk house up out of the cave (another sleep-over the owner wants to rent out, hmmmm?). That was another dud, no ghosts, no stories, nothing. I think this is overpriced, and not well rehearsed.

In a state with Kartchner Caverns and a region with Carlsbad Caverns this was a dissapointment. There really isn't much to the cave and a lot of it has been destroyed over the years. To make up for that they have a lot of stories about the cave. Some are obviously false. That leaves you wondering about the others. You have to go if you are doing Route 66. Just don't miss going to the better caves in the region.

On our way from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon we decided to take the Route 66 historic loop and it was great. It was nice to get off the interstate and enjoy some wonderful desert views. We stopped at the Caverns on a whim and it was worth it. The tour lasts an hour and you see many interesting sites from a giant Ground Sloth to a mummified bobcat to old civil defense gear. The tour guide was funny and knew a lot. We had our 3 children with us and they liked the tour too. Nice break on the way to the Grand Canyon.

Like another reviewer, we visited the caverns after seeing them on Billy Connelly's Route 66 show. The caverns have a lot of history and interesting stories attached to them. The tours happened every half an hour so factor that in when you are planning your day. Our tour guide was a young guy and his jokes weren't very funny but he tried hard to engage everyone, especially as a number of people didn't seem to speak English. The idea of staying overnight in the cavern didn't appeal to me but there is apparently a long wait to even get a reservation so keep that in mind if you want to stay there. This is not an attraction if you can't walk far or have trouble with steps. Also - bring a sweater as it's very cool down there.

Had heard about this attraction from the Billy Connelly Route 66 programme. Less than $20 to get in and we got a discount for being AA members. The tour lasts about 50-60 minutes and consists of a descent in a lift then a 3/4 mile guided walk through the caverns. There is actually overnight accommodation set up in the largest cave and you can stay overnight there (for a price and if you're brave enough!). Our guide, Kyle, was informative and witty. The history of the cavern is fascinating. On site there is a gift shop and a cafe where we had a really tasty chocolate brownie. Worth a look.
