  • My boyfriend and I took a day trip to Huntsville and found this little gem. We really enjoyed the tour. Our guide's name was Cavan, befitting for a cave tour! He was knowledgeable and entertaining...

  • A must-see if you're anywhere within driving distance of these amazing caverns. The walking path is safe, wide and easy to navigate. The tour is about 90 minutes long. It is about a 1.5-mile...

  • Great experience. Our tour guide gave us lots of experience and was well informed. Alex, "root beer", really helped bring the whole experience together. Super easy to navigate to, the signs show you exactly where you need to go. My wife and I chose to call ahead but talking to other people who came same time as us, it isn't always required to make a reservation. As the website says the hills can be steep so I wouldn't recommend wheelchairs but is super kid friendly. The lighting isn't as bright as the photos make it seem to be but it is still excellently well lit and my wife and I had no issues seeing where we were going. It is a guided only experience so make sure you plan around guide times.
  • It was 100% worth it. We took a day trip from Georgia and we absolutely enjoyed it. Our tour guide Rita was awesome. With her jokes and knowledge the tour felt like we were walking through an interactive story. The end was absolutely stunning. I would recommend you go in the slow season you you can enjoy the beauty without haste. We were a group of 8 and that was a great size. If you haven’t gone definitely check it out
  • This place is quite amazing. The cave system was well explained by the Guide, Barry. I was completely impressed by the tour and so many different things to see. It was well lit up and was easy to walk. The route is paved like a sidewalk with special surfaces to keep it slip free. It surprised me completely, because, really, I didn't want to go. My sister talked me into it, because she wanted to see it. Use the hand rails if you need to, I used them a lot because I was looking around in wonder and awe. It's a very interesting place if you like outdoor hiking and the wonders of the earth.
  • Absolutely Incredible. Found this place on our way between Huntsville and Chattanooga and so glad we saw the sign and decided to give it a look. Now that I've seen this place, I would have happily driven an hour or more out of my way to visit. Its just insanely massive and amazing. The photos just don't do it justice, you have got to see it! Our guide (Stephanie) was just brilliant, so full of fun and information. She clearly loves her job and this place. Cathedral Cavern is an absolute must visit if you are anywhere within 2 hours!
  • I honestly think this was one of the most awesome caverns I been in since Carlsbad caverns. The path you walk in and out of is all lighted smoothed easy to walk concrete path. You have to have a tour guide but it's 1.5 mile round trip of awesomeness you won't be disappointed for the $20 entry fee it's well worth it. You can film and take flash photography until the tour guided takes you to the end, were they shut off the lights for 2-3 minutes while she sets up for a laser display. Folks go here if your the adventures type you will love it
