We had the best tour of a cavern with our tour guide Jim. He was very knowledgeable and funny! There was a rock that looks like Mufasa and a viking ship. We also walked the trails.

What a fun adventure that exceeded expectations. I’m not sure exactly what we were in for but the beauty of this amazing cave, the adventure of exploring it, our knowledgeable guide were all fantastic. Plus you beat the Texas heat. I wish we had had a camera below do if you have a go pro then definitely bring it! This isn’t for the faint of heart when it comes to tight spaces but our guide expertly took us through formations you just never would expect to experience. Definitely wear long pants and shoes you don’t care about. Bring a towel and a change of clothes. Be prepared to get dirty and experience something uniquely fun and adventuresome.
What a great treasure in the Texas Hill Country! The caverns are awe-inspiring. The park system has left this gem in its natural state as much as possible. The lighting is good - it shows off the features of the cavern without while not being over-done and losing its natural appeal. The park personnel - to a person - were helpful, knowledgeable and very pleasant to work with. I can't wait to bring my little stepson for a visit! This is a real family opportunity!
Our guide was great! I wish I could remember her name, but she was a retired deputy sheriff. Quite entertaining and very knowledgeable. The tour was about an hour and half. A number of areas had low head room requiring "duck walking"; however, nothing to stressful. These caverns are different than the ones in Missouri and Kentucky. These were formed by an underground rivers. Very cool!
Misty was a professional and friendly tour guide, she was very helpful during the wild cave tour, making sure to stop and see how the group was doing, asking if we needed a break, checking in with any first timers of the tour. Misty was enthusiastic and knowledgeable while answering all of our questions and pointed out her favorite things about the rooms and passages of the cave. It was wonderful to have a passionate person like Misty as a tour guide, you can tell she loves what she does. Worth the drive. The cavern is phenomenal!
This place is really amazing. I have been in few caves before but this one was the most beautiful I have seen so far. I really enjoyed the walking tour. It was very nice experience. Our tour guide had a lot of knowledge about the history of the cave and he really knew how to tell about it in very informative and funny way. The cave formations are so beautiful. I would definitely recommend this cavern tour to everyone who loves to see nature in their own beauty.
