  • Went on the 1 hour tour, Blake was a very good guide. I knew there were 120 stairs, but it was also alot of uphill and uneven surfaces which made it more challenging than i expected. 
  • We took our three children, ages 6 and under. This was seriously the most family friendly cave we have been to. We opted for the shorter tour which was perfect for our two year old, and were greeted at the end with a free crystal mining sandbox experience. The entire building and mining area have undergone a beautiful renovation.
  • Our family thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide, Justis, was great - we had some "unruly" children on our tour and he handled it perfectly. He was friendly and funny. Gift shop had great merchandise - not your usual "tourist crap". Facility very clean with friendly staff. Definitely recommend Black Hills Caverns!
  • Tour guide was great! One of the best cave viewings in the area.
  • Great place to go fun fun fun
  • Fun cave tour. Short tour is only 30 minutes and easy for anyone. The long tour has a few staircases that might be prohibitive for the disabled. Definitely a worthy trip.
