A must see!! One of the best beautiful caverns in Texas, after visiting all of them. Our guide Mike was knowledgeable but appeared as if he didn't have much patience with kids. There were about 7 people in our group which included my 6 year old son. He has been in many caves and knows the rules of no touching and at this stage of his life he is very curious, prompting him to ask a lot of questions. He's also very friendly and when he was talking to a tour guest while the tour guide was talking he abruptly stopped and asked them to be quiet. A more appropriate response may have been to please hold on to your questions. But that wasn't the end, when my son started asking numerous questions, the tour guide had stated he wasn't going to repeat himself after he asked him why several times!! I think he just lost his patience in where my son just wanted to get a better understanding of what we were looking at, which was actually at a frog. He also repeatedly told my son not to touch anything just when he is kneeing down to get a better look at something. It seemed he always picked on him and we didn't tell him anything as we didn't want to be escorted out. This will not stop us from coming back, but we just hope we get another tour guide. Also, make sure you don't slightly walk in front of your guide as he will correct you immediately. We enjoyed the cave and it didn't feel as commercialized like the Natural Bridge Caverns. The cave contained a lot of stalagmites and stalagmites in a wide open part of the cave. There were a couple of multi-colored bats as well in the cave to look at. We took plentiful of photos and we plan to return sometime in the future with other family members. The gift shop was fully stocked and reasonable. The tour guide did mention they hold concerts down there and that is something we would like to take advantage of. Also, be advised the stairs going back up will be a workout.
