Tuckaleechee Caverns is well worth the price of admission. It was much bigger and much better than expected and our tour guide was fantastic. I highly recommend a visit.

We were staying in Pigeon Forge for the week of Spring Break and this was among many adventures we went on throughout the week, it was definitely our favorite! There were two adults and our three and a half year old and spent less than $38.
We checked out the gift shop while we waited for our tour to start and shortly after (10-15min) headed down. Don’t let the musty smell turn you away at the top of the stairs, b/c the adventure is about to begin. This was probably one of the coolest places I have gone in my entire life and my 3 year old has been telling everyone it was his stinking favorite part of the whole trip! AMAZING!! Made me feel like I was one of the Goonies! We were down there for a few hours and got to hear the true story of the 2 young boys that found the cave and all the spelunking that has taken place since. It’s a little off the beaten path, but a MUST SEE!!! Great for kids of all ages.
Thanks again to our tour guide!!

We’ve been to other cavern tours before, and this one wins hands down! By far this was the best, longest, and coolest stop! Our guide took her time and shared all sorts of neat facts. This is a must do!!

The caves are amazing! Our family and friends really enjoyed this trip. There are a bunch of stairs but it is worth it!
