A Must Do Even If You Are Unsure
This was one of the best things we did on a two week trip to the Rockies! Loved, loved, loved it! It’s hard to say, though, whether the caves themselves or the guide, Max, was better. The caves were MARVELOUS - with multiple spaces each with its own interest: one with ancient bones of uncertain origin, another with “the new cave room smell”, another with the drip drip of last year’s melt making down that deep at last and absolute darkness when the lights were out. There were ropes and stairs and what was essentially rock climbing at different points. But all was safe. From the way the waiver was written, the genuinely helpful information video, to the run-through of the equipment provided, everything was reassuring. Which brings us to Max. We don’t know if we’ve ever met a greater enthusiast on any subject! He was friendly, and informed, (he is from the area, is doing graduate work in microbiology focused on cave environments, and knows the fellow who discovered this cave complex). One of us, Paul, has a history of claustrophobia that Max managed with a practical and judgement free manner, and he was so clearly in love with this cave that it was impossible to feel anything but safety and wonder. It may feel a bit out of the way and out of the box, but we would recommend caving here as an absolute MUST in the area!

To drop down into the caverns and keep going down and down and not realize how far you've travelled was really interesting. A great time for all skill levels.

Absolutely Amazing Experience
Sep. 2021
This is an absolutely amazing experience. I loved every part of it including the rapelle, the squeezes, seeing all of the beautiful formations inside of The Grotto, and learning about the cave. I was lucky to be with Tiffany and Shy, who are incredible guides. Both of them are good natured and kind people, and are incredibly knowledgeable and skilled. They fit the tour to my abilities and interests, making it a fun, interesting and comfortable experience - I was well taken care of in all regards. I would go back into that cave with them any day - there are so many incredible things to explore and learn about, and it is just so cool.

It is worth the time and money to do the Adventure Tour over the Explorer tour. The repelling and extra squeezes are the most fun. We loved our guide Hyun Ho , incredibly knowledgeable and kept us feeling very safe in the cave. 100% worth the price.

Epic Adventure
Sep. 2021
In a week of fun that included a glacier walk, hiking, ziplining, and skydiving, this was my favorite. Absolutely epic experience and just an amazing tour of a literally hidden part of nature. It was a good challenge, both physically and mentally at times, and also unforgettable.

I also want to give a big shout out to our guide, HyunHo. He was really incredible. For such a young age he was knowledgeable, mature and trustworthy. He took great care of us both physically and mentally, and really knew how to show us a good time. I highly recommend him!

Incredible experience!

My husband and I toured with John and it was the best possible experience we could have asked for. John was highly knowledgeable about the cave, plants, and animals along the hike and was able to answer any questions we had. It was clear that he was putting his guests first and was consistently checking in on us and ensuring we felt safe and were having fun. We absolutely loved this tour!
