  • The 3 hour wet and wild tour was fun (albeit not very wet or wild), but a little slow paced. Next time I would do one of the extreme tours in the summer, or just rent equipment and go on my own.

  • To begin this short review, I would like thank our tour guide Alex on taking my girlfriend and I on an adventure of a life time. The time spent in this cave was both fascinating and memorable. Alex was very encouraging while he challenged us to conquer the "cheese grater" and "wormhole." I recommend people of all ages to experience Horne Lake Caves, and to try something new and out of their comfort zone. Thank you Alex and staff, keep on doing what you are doing!
  • Adventurous, fun outdoor experience. You can do self guided tours! Make sure you wear comfortable shoes with a good grip. Also a light waterproof jacket would be a great thing to wear. Cannot forget the flashlight!
  • This was a really great adventure for our boys they were able to boulder inside a cave, squeeze between rocks, scoot down slides, climb up ladders, get dirty, walk over a rope bridge, etc. The guides were awesome and we all can't wait until our youngest child is old enough to do a longer adventure in these caves!
  • Great well informed guided tours lights and hard hats included. Gloves are available and you take them home with you. I did the riverbed cave tour great information and where to place your hands and feet as the ground rocks can be slippery.
  • Super fun. Me, and my two daughters explored the caves you can do on your own. They are 5 and 1. The 1 year old explored from the safety of my arms, lol.
