Our tour guide, Tate was very informative! He did a great job explaining the Cave's history and showing off the acoustics of the cave. He has a great singing voice.

My family enjoyed our visit to the cave. Our tour guide was excellent, it lasted for about 1.5 hours. Be sure to bring light jacket, comfortable shoes because there are a lot of stairs, and camera! Overall, I would recommend this place.

Beautiful caverns! We have noticed the sign over the years for Tuckaleechee Caverns and decided to visit. Well worth the time and money. Expect some stairs, over 400, so wear comfortable shoes. If you have small children you will be carrying them so that is...More

Very happy we drove up to the caverns from Gatlinburg. The tour itself was about 90 minutes. Well worth the time and money to. Heck this place out. Our youngest was 7 - he had no problem navigating the path and stairs.

You drive right up to the entrance and gift shop. Once inside the cave, the walk is rather strenuous and make sure you wear proper shoes.
