This was a fun day activity, great when it is raining outside. I learned so much from the volunteers and I never knew that this cavern existed. I got great pictures of the formations. I would suggest for someone traveling through

It has been 50 years since I had been here. I took my wife who had never been. To me we picked the best time of the year to go. No crowds, no herding, taking our time. Very nice.

The guide overall was really funny and knowledgeable. Taking a busy two year old was not our best idea but we made it work. Would recommend wearing layers it was burning up with two jackets. The gift shop staff was super friendly too.

It was a very interesting experience. The tour itself (commentary) can be improved a little despite the guide being knowledgeable. Glad we went, interesting. Was fortunate that it was a very slow day. I assume that summer is a madhouse. There’s other stuff to do...More

Tour was okay, but was way too long. There is usually a bunch over people per tour. The guide will walk to each area, wait for everyone to catch up then start talking. Could be standing around for 5 minutes waiting for everyone. Expect about...More

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.
