  • We decided to stop in here last minute, regrettable! Everything started off ok. Paid for the tour and walked around the lobby. Started the tour, well a little ways in, not even sure if we were...  more »
  • It was my first cave tour and I thought it was pretty cool. Our tour guide was a little quirky but very friendly and upbeat. She was knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Was something perfect to do on a rainy day!
  • This place is pretty cool, not my favorite. Our guide was quirky and pleasant, very informative! I feel like ticket prices are a little high in comparison to others. And their gift shop is not a place where there is "something for everyone" because of the prices as well. Overall I recommend stopping here if you want to skip going to Mammoth!
  • Beautiful caves. Active formations of stalagmites and stalactites. Its a wet cave. Tour is an hour long, starts every hour, costs $20. The caves are privately owned but owners care for the preservation of the caves. Our tour guide Kaylin was very informative, cheerful and accommodating. Highly recommended tour.
  • Great experience. Went to Mammoth Cave and everything was sold out (tour-wise), so we did the self guided tour which was alright but pretty short (less than a mile). We decided to drive to Diamond Caverns and see what was there and were pleasantly surprised that it wasn't nearly as packed as Mammoth Cave was. The Diamond Caverns tour was pretty cool and the tour guide (Sam) was great. Would definitely recommend checking it out if exploring the area.
  • Great price for a family tour. Mammoth caves were very busy but this cave had multiple tours and we only waited a half hour. Last minute stop on the way home. Has a lot of interesting features. The stairs are tough but even my four year did fine with assistance. We were at the back of the pack but didn't feel pressured to hurry. The hour just zips by and I could have stayed all day. Maybe not the most gorgeous cave but still impressive with a very interesting history. We were just driving through and were disappointed that most mammoth cave tours were booked up but this place gave my kids the opportunity to see their first cave and it did not disappoint. Full of formations and even saw some cave ants and beatles. I'm also interested in finding more info on the history such as the stairs that only have a few steps and seem to go nowhere at the beginning of the tour??? It really sparked some cave interest in the family to learn some geology. **Even the new tour guide did a great job**
