  • Loved this tour- had Beth Ann as our ranger. This is a beautiful, majestic cave. The rooms are spacious- the lighting is eerily gorgeous. There are many types of formations within the cave. If you are...  more »

  • I'm sure it would have been lovely had Ranger Dorothy Perkins not made us leave because my 1 year old was talking (NOT crying or being disruptive)... She's far too old to be doing tours that are meant for all walks of life. My other children were sad they didn't get to finish the tour past the first room. When my husband asked her to speak a little louder she told him no that down there she's the boss. We know for a fact that there's been complaints for the same thing in the past, so maybe it's time to reevaluate Ms. Perkins employment and maybe suggest retirement.
  • I can give only two stars for two reasons: I have visited nine caves and this one was the least interesting. I recommend nearby Wind Cave if you want a more interesting and rewarding experience. Secondly, getting tickets during peak times I.e. July means come very early, expect long lines and expect possibly a several hours wait between buying our tickets and actually getting on the tour. Again, Wind Cave seems to handle mass tourism a bit better.
  • Super cool cave system, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and I look forward to the day that we prove this system is much bigger than Mammoth!
  • Awesome experience. Took the tour of the cave. Just unreal.
  • Nice informative walk through the caves. Good explanation of how they were formed through the ages. Great views. Some basic condition is required to do all 753 steps :D
