I always take out-of-town visitors there. It's a show case type of place. The gift shop is adequate. The tour guides are of varying abilities.

This was a great excursion. It ended up being just me and my boyfriend, but they still gave us a great tour. We ended up chatting with the tour guide so the trip lasted a lot longer. There is a ton to see in the cave. They made it funny and really engaged with us. Must do!!

Wow, what a pleasant Experience here! We had set a reservation up weeks in advance, as I wanted to have a RV campsite ready, making a drive down from MN to experience a cave, along with a Family Reunion in the area. About the cave. We were not disappointed. It was an informational, exciting, beautiful, eventful experience with the 2... More

This was the best cave tour we (a group of 6) have ever been on. Marvin was an excellent tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and experienced! We have been on other cave tours, but this cave experience was even more rewarding because of the small size of our group. We especially enjoyed seeing the salamanders, the tadpoles and the... More

We seen the advertisements coming into Jefferson City to see family. If it hadn't been for the billboard I wouldn't have known it was there so great advertising! We went on Saturday and it was raining. Obviously didn't matter since you're indoors. It was a really neat cave. Other than a few low spots it was easy to navigate so... More

We did the tour on a rain day... Interesting to see the soda straws and different underground rock formations and stream. There are concrete pathways suitable for young children and wheelchairs. There are some tight spots (low clearance) for those of us 6 ft or taller but not that many, just walk forward and it opens up again. Little gift... More
