“Lovely Experience”

Blanchard Springs Caverns

I liked the caverns and drip cave tour. The caverns are huge and expansive, our guide Debora was so nice and knowledgable, the tour number of 30 people seemed too big but was fine once we were in here. The tour started on time which was nice. The hour went by pretty fast, although I did not appreciate the 1 year old twins on the tour screaming and generally kinda being a nuisance, but that was not the cavern people's fault, just avoid tours with babies. I liked these caverns just as much as Kertchner Caverns in Tucson Arizona. Blanchard springs caverns were gorgeous.

Visited the Caverns on Sunday 10/21/12 for the 2 30 pm tour. Temperature is a constant 58 degrees so you might want to bring a light jacket. It is a magnificent display of nature which was over 100 years in the making and is still evolving! Got some really great pictures and the tour guide was great!

I took the 1 hour tour of the cave. It is a guided tour with some information about the cave. They offer some other more strenuous tours that go into the lower levels of the cave(seasonal).The cave has some beautiful formations and is located in a remote mountainous area.it's worth a visit

Love the caves. There are a couple of choices on which tour you want to go. I love them both. One is definitely more challenging. Always a nice place to go in the hot summer, because it stays very cool in the caves.

I took only the easiest tour, and there are three of different levels of difficulty. I have visited show caves, ones open for professional tours, for many years across many states. This one is, without a doubt the most beautiful I have ever seen. It has no multicolored lights nor any videos, it is a cave with an amazing collection of different formations. The tour guide was extremely good, pointed out and explained different features, answered questions, and paused for pictures as needed. I was also impressed with the care taken of the cave inhabitants, particularly the attempts to avoid bringing the white nose syndrome into the bat colony.
