While I wish they offered self-guided tours, we were quite happy with our guided tour of the caverns. I would only wish for adult-only tours that might give an option of better group behaviour and allow to enjoy the silence inside the caverns.

Worth the effort to stop and tour--its beautiful. The staff was friendly and efficient. Our guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the caverns. The best part: somehow my driver's license, which accidentily fell out of my pocket during the tour, was found and immediately...More

We went with my mother and father-in-law. It was by far one of the most beautiful caves we've ever been in. The tour was only about 1 hour and 15 minutes, but we had about 11 people and moved pretty quick. It was pretty warm...More
