    Just been on the tour, and one is the best cavern tours we have done. Very simple tour nothing too hard or small to squeeze through and loads of interesting facts about the guy who found it. Good use ...  more »

    Visit to the cavern was fun & bit of adventure. Walking down and up 440 steps (total) was not that difficult. We went there on a hot afternoon and it was pretty cool once you enter the cave. Very plea...  more »

    Great experience for a class field trip or for individuals. Note: If going as a class they only take small groups in at a time so the rest of the group must wait. If you are taking a large group consider splitting the group with half going to Columbia and half at Mercer and then switching.

    Very poor customer service!! Go somewhere else. I drove my family for over 90 minutes to go here and they were closed for a private party. There was no notice on there website and no notice on there signs when entering. If they are unwilling to take an effort to notify the puplic that they will be closed due to private tours then we should not go to the effort with spending out time and $$ at this attraction. There are other caves close by to explore with much better customer service and a nicer staff

    Had a great time. A lot to look at you should call before going and make sure there isn't a school bus group coming or a large group of people they have limited space in the cavern our group numbered about 20 and that was about max. they won't turn anyone away if it is more people but it does make it hard to get everyone in and out before the next tour start.

    Mercer Caverns is a cool experience for those who have never been underground in a dark, yet safe environment. The history of the caverns is fascinating and the natural wonders of the underground are vibrant and educational—DO NOT TOUCH the natural wonders—we want these beautiful formations to last for future generations. The tour is safe for families, babies, young children—the infrastructure is well designed and supported for you and your family to enjoy the cavern experience.
