The tour is worth every cent. There is an array of amazing caves to be taken through by your guide with many stalactites and stalagmites. Around each corner is another intriguing feature.

A little gem. Ideal 30 -45 min cave tour for families and more mature persons. Approx 25 Steps down stairs at entry to cave, thereafter easy walking. Great Guide, easy parking, then suggest visit Preston Falls and other sites nearby.

Gunns Plains Caves provided us with a very intimate tour through these beautiful cave systems. Minimum 2 people required to run a tour and Geoff our host was both informative and humorous which made our tour a delight.
