Well worth the money. It was very crowded, but we didn't have to wait longer than 15 minutes during the middle of the day on a weekend. So I guess it wasn't that crowded. The caverns were extremely dope, and the tour guides were filled...More

Really beautiful caverns. I wish they allowed you to take a self guided tour at your own pace. It's OK for most people that just want to look and move along without really looking at the details. But I felt it was rushed and I...More

This is definitely a great tourist destination! This is a place where you should go once for sure. It's a good 45 minute tour and about 1.5 miles trek. Pricing was a bit expensive ($27 for adult and $14 for child now), but it is...More

Like stepping into the dwarf realm in "Lord of the RIngs". The scenery is unlike anything you would find on the surface. The cashier suggested we get coats if we had them there, as the caverns could feel cold, but my wife and I were...More

This is my 4th time here and 2nd time with toddler. Make sure your small child goes to the bathroom before starting the tour it's about 1 hour walk. Still good tour! Unfortunate some of the formations have been damaged to allow for more tourist...More

The queues put you off but they move pretty fast and it is worth it because they are packing the customers into digestible groupings to allow easier flow through the cavern route. All in all this is a marvellous visit and well worth the time...More

We were genuinely surprised by the magnitude of this cave. The walking tour is over a mile in length and you'll get to see amazing sights along the entire journey. Our guide was very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions from the group. The pace...More

I visited twice during the summer on a week day and weekend. It was very busy on the weekend. I would imagine holidays such as Labr Day would also be busy. If you tend to cold, bring a jacket.
