It was a little pricey but the underground view was great and our guide was very friendly and helpful. I am not sure why they charge so much for this but all in all, I am glad that I did it.

Don't miss going here if you are in the Mountain View area. Guides were very helpful and cave was really something to see. There were everyone from babies to seniors in our group. Reception area is good with a nice gift shop. Don't miss seeing the falls before you leave the park.

Excellent tour guides, beautiful caverns. Make reservations or be prepared to wait for an opening on busy days. Plenty of parking and easy access.

Took four small kids on the dripstone tour. I would like to go back and see the rest of the cave. Also, don't miss the springs just down the road from the caverns. Headed back to swim in the creek.

Fabulous Dripstone Tour (one hour, no steps, all paved) had no wait on a weekday in June. Very entertaining guide, Ranger Dale with the long grey Willie Nelson ponytail, very obviously loves his job, the caverns, and the people he serves. I was left to wonder why tourists line up by the thousands to see Mammoth Cave National Park, but... More

The Blanchard Caverns were nothing short of amazing. My 10 yr old had a great time viwing the cave. We went on the first tour... it was not strenuous for either of us. It was cool and damp so wear shoes with grip. The guides were informative and interesting that we didnt realize we were in the cave for 1hr.... More

We drove two hours off the interstate yesterday to see these caverns and they were closed. The power was out after a storm so call ahead today in case they are still closed! The spring, the river trail and the waterfalls were beautiful! The trail next to the river was amazing and great for a long dog walk/swim!

We were frustrated because we showed up at 10:30 to go on the 10:40 tour but a group of 22 ahead of us took so long to get their tickets that we were not able to make the tour. We had to wait a full hour til the next tour went out. The staff were not very sympathetic that we... More
