My family and I have been to numerous caves and this one was different from all the others. First and most importantly, the tours were with a small number of participants so you could not only hear the guide but it was easy to ask questions and interact with him. It was easy to see the things described and hear the explanation. On other tours, the guide was hard to hear because there were too many people and by the time you got to the item they were describing, the guide would be explaining something else.
Secondly, the guide had an area of the cave that my family could climb through and he would meet us at the other end. It allowed for inquisitive children to some spelunking with parents close by.
Hurricane caves has a spectacular chandelier room, a live stream with a wishing pool, drapes, flowstones, soda straws to name a few. The cave have multiple levels and the Wild Cave Tour is known to be outstanding. The guide had numerous stories to tell about the history, findings and oddities of Hurricane River Cave. I learned more from this tour than from the others that I had visited. It is well worth going off the beaten path.
