Great, scenic tour of the caverns. Lasted about an hour. Beautiful lighting inside to see the incredible details of the cavern.

What an amazing experience. We thought it was a little pricy until we went. We were disappointed that all the extra stuff was not available during winter months. Will definitely go back at some time and visit the shops and try out the zip line.
