Wow! We had no idea the caverns had so much to see. Our guide Hunter was awesome with lots of history of the Caverns. Took about one hour and was well worth the tour. Will be back and bring the grandchildren.

A very nice cave tour with an emphasis on the history of the cave and the area. Lots to see and a very good narration about the cave itself and its' history. Recommend.

We visited in early April the second day the cave opened for the season. We lucked out with the first tour of the day at 10:00 and had a wonderful personable guide. He took us through the very wet caverns (don't bring good shoes) and...More

It's a little steep in places. But for the most part it is very enjoyable.
