  • The caves are very interesting and beautiful, love the ride and the stories of the Guide. We were going from NEW YORK to Washington and decided to get out of the route and make a program different from the cliche. Thanks a lot, I recommend!

  • We took our grandson to visit the caverns in December. Because they are underground, the temps remain at 50 degrees year round - it was warmer than the outdoor temps. The caverns are relatively small ...  more »
  • I'm sure this place is great if we got to see it. Knowing it's January and a lot of places are closed or have limited hours, we went online to check if this was open. According to the website it was. ...  more »

  • Indian Echo is a good place to kill a few hours. It is a walking guided tour in Caverns. Pretty cool actually. Our guide was funny and very knowledgeable. Kind of pricey though to get in. And I did not see any handicap accessibility at all. You must walk down over 70 steps to get to the Caverns. Which isn't bad. It's walking back up is what gets you. So if you are in a wheelchair or on crutches or just can't walk well, I would not recommend you go here. Please, don't get me wrong. They COULD have an elevator somewhere. I didn't look. Call and find out for yourself. But it is a cool place to go.
  • This is so close to Hershey it would be a shame to miss out on for anyone. We went not too long after the Hershey Half Marathon. Parking is very good. The staff and tour guide (Jake) were exceptional and knowledgeable, not to mention very friendly. The cavern is comfortable and a light jacket or sweatshirt is recommended. I found no problems with the footing or paths inside the caverns and there is plenty of elbow room when in a group. If you are looking for something different to do when in Hershey then definitely check Indian Echo Caverns out.
  • Nice caves with some decent history. You can get to see some of the active formations through limestone. There is a section where it's complete dark and you don't even see your fingers with open eyes. A nice experience
  • Great place to explore with younger kids. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Gift shop was large and varied and parking was readily available. Bring a sweatshirt or long sleeve jacket for everyone though, even if its 80 degrees outside. The caverns are quite cool once you get into them a ways.
  • Absolutely fantastic tour! Great place for adults and children of all ages to do something different in Hershey PA. The tour was fascinating and you would never assume such a vast cavern would exist here at first glance. Great place to visit if the weather doesn't work for Hershey Park.
