The Wild Cave is not a place you go to get awed and inspired by beautiful rock formations or sediments. No, this is for those that want to spend 6 hours crawling through dirt and rock, sometimes in your belly as you belly crawl 20 feet through a 2-3 feet high opening (I could hear so many people grunting and...

We went on the wild cave tour today. It was fantastic. Our guides were Jacob and Corey. Jacob had a great knowledge of the caves and a great sense of humour and Corey is one of the guys that comes across completely unflappable you could totally trust to get you out of a tricky situation. Great qualities for guides when... More

How often does one get to crawl, squeeze, and hike in the longest cave in the world? Sign up for the Wild Cave Tour in Mammoth Cave National Park, KY, for an amazing 51/2 miles that is both challenging & exhilarating. One has to be physically fit to enjoy this experience. Hiking boots that are above the ankles with good... More

This tour is what they explain. If you are at ALL claustrophobic or uneasy with hits DO NOT DO IT. You will be crawling under rocks for miles. You will be climbing cliffs and squeezing through small openings. The rocks are moist in some spots and the ledges can be sketchy at best. Your not strapped in and if your... More

We loved our Mammoth Cave "Niagara Falls" tour. The guide was knowledgeable and lots of fun. The bus driver had us a little scared with his fast, crazy driving, but it added to the experience. We didn't know a ride like that was included in the price of admission. Can't wait to return one day!

6 times and counting. Different every time. My son and I loved it each time. Having served on a rescue team I enjoied the guides and wound up taking up the rear of each group. Some tight spots and some narrow spots but overall it was a breeze. If you do not like the dark or being closed in this... More

When you make you reservation read the fine print. As they go to great lengths to say on their website, Mammoth Cave and the National Park System may deny you access to the tour at their discretion. It happened to a member of our party. Then having denied access, Mammoth Cave and the National Park System refused to provide a... More

I went on the Wild Cave Tour for the third time on November 8th and brought my friend along to experience a fun challenge. We did not get the same experience I had on my previous tours and we did not get what we paid for. Normally I have a 5 star experience. Our group full with 14 cavers and... More
