What a beauty. Me and my kids were so happy down there. Lit of walking steps etc but all worth it. Our guide even sang a song for us thousand feet under. Can't beat that.

The US has no shortage of caverns to tour and Tennessee certainly has a lot of them. I have toured most of the biggest and best throughout the US over the years. This cavern is very deceptive from the outside. The main building is underwhelming...More

What an absolutely amazing cavern! We spent almost two hours on our tour. In my humble opinion it rivals Luray Caverns without all the commercialization. Still a small operation but incredibly impressive. The stairs were easy to handle for a couple of seniors and lighting...More

It really depends on the size of the group and the mobility of the people in the group. 1 hour with small group, no stragglers or up to 2 hours with large group/stragglers. Lots of places to stop and rest and looking at... More
