We were just looking to kill some time when we ran across a sign for the caverns. It turned out to be a lucky find as it was very informative and enjoyable. Our guide was friendly and personable.

We visited on a whim after a rainy day and are so glad we did! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, easy to hear and funny. The caverns we're beautiful and interesting. We had a great time and both said we would return.

It may not be fair to compare, but they're about an equal distance from Pigeon Forge and are about the same price and they're both caves. It wasn't crowded at Forbidden Caverns, but they were running the tour like it was. We were constantly reminded...More

We went with our 9yr old and 6 yr old. It was neat! It'd recommend it but know there are narrow and uneven walkways. The guide talked about cave facts and moonshine history. It has a gift store, but not much in it.

I believe it’s $16. There are $1.00 off coupons in many books and maps available in the area. It’s a 45-60 min guided tour.
