It was absolutely gorgeous in there. There were a lot of stairs, but the walkways were wide. You could also get close enough to touch many of the formations. The tour guides were also very funny and a little cheeky (not anything inappropriate.)

We like this place. They have guided tour there worth taking it . Need to walk uphill n downhill a lot. If having heart conditions avoid going feels tired.

I love caves so we go to them wherever we are. It’s an hour tour and you see great formations. Nicely lit but dark enough so you get the cave experience.

This is a very interesting place to visit. The area itself has not changed much over the years. It is nice to see such a wonderful attraction that is not surrounded by hotels and fast food restaurants. There is plenty of free parking. Make sure...More

This tour is must mesmerizing! This is a definite must see for the family. Not for young children or the elderly as there is a fairly steep stair climb at the end of the tour. The entire tour is about 1.5 miles It's a bit...More

In-laws, teens, and kids will enjoy this little adventure deep underground. Tour guide was able to answer questions and used a microphone to ensure everyone in the group could hear. Ticket includes admission to the car museum and toy display. Great Black Friday outing!

Sometimes I'm turned off by a group tour, but this was a great experience. A little pricey, but worth it. Go early, the lines can get pretty long, especially on weekends.

It is not really guided. There are guides along the way. You can go at your own pace but you do stop to hear the guides when you get to them. However in between you are on your own.

I guess it would depend on the line to get in, but the actual tour to walk thru the cavern was about 1 hour.
