  • This cave is amazing. Jared, the tour guy is absolutely brilliant. Let him know you're interested in the chemistry and geology involved in caves and their formation, and he will educate you better than a textbook. The rock formations were stunning; so many cool things to look at. It's a small cave and a short tour, but it's well worth the very low cost.
  • Staff was friendly. Tour guide was actually smart. He knew what he was talking about. I took my infant (1 year old) with us. Worked great no problems. They had some pretty tight fits. And the shop outside seemed kinda run down. Inside was very nice and nice selection on gift ware. Worth going
  • We really enjoyed it! It was a relatively quick tour, which was what we were interested in. But absolutely beautiful rock formations. Lots of coral. Very knowledge guide, Missy. My kids had a great time. Highly reccomend especially if you aren’t interested in crowds or an all day deal. Very affordable & worth every penny!
  • Amazing shop! The young lady that worked there was very knowledgeable and helpful. Prices were very reasonable. Will go back for the cave tour when have more time.
  • Great examples of interesting cave formations. This tour was more enjoyable than the Mammoth tour (which was nice too). Nice people. Great rock shop; not your run of the mill junk-rock shop. They know what they are doing, and the prices are solid.
