This was a decent cave tour. The coolest thing was the rare anthodite formations in this cave (only three caves in the US have these). The cave was not at all in it's natural state and was pretty touristy (lots of flashy colored lights, gravel...More

We were local visitors to Skyline Caverns. Sonny was our guide. We had two small children with us and Sonny was kind and patient with the little ones. He was enthusiastic about the caverns and funny. It was a great tour. Thank you.

Beautiful cave, knowledgeable guides, and the tour is just the right length. My tour take just about one hour, and is absolutely beautiful. This is the perfect length of time. I would imagine that it is really nice to visit in the heat of summer

This hour long tour guides you through narrow tunnels and open caverns. Skyline has you yearning to discover what's around the next bend of this lesser formed area. Although as others have stated it was not the grandest of Caverns. But it does offer each...More

If you enjoy caverns; then you will enjoy Skyline Caverns. A must stop along your travels. My wife and I have been in more than two dozen caverns and this one is great.

We have been to several caverns and this is by far the best. The guide was fantastic with a lot of information. This is a do not miss. This is a easy tour. We had an 86 year old lady who had no trouble.

As others have pointed out, these are not the largest nor the most spectacular caves, even in this area. However, the management has taken what they have and presented it to the visitor to maximize the experience. Colored lighting makes otherwise ordinary formations interesting. They...More
