Went in August and it was hot outside, but cool and comfortable underground. This was a good way to spend a day doing something fun and different while in the Smokies. I would do it again. YES! it is worth the drive from Pigeon Forge.......More

I had seen the signs for the caverns many years and biked by it but had never stopped there. When I finally went with two fellow hikers I was pleasantly surprised ! It was a lot bigger and at every turn had beautiful rock formations....More

My wife and I drive from pigeon forge to find out the business was closed! The business needs to change hours on both the website and TripAdvisor. Even google states the business is open from 9am to 6pm on a daily basis.

We went to see these amazing caverns in October. Wonderful tour guide (young woman), the story about this cave was so fascinating! Our two boys 9 and 7 years old also had the best time. Highly recommend and an absolute must visit!

Our guide, Terry, said he was 70yo, has the energy of a 30yo. He is very informative! Patient & makes sure you enjoy yourself. Well worth your time & money. Artifacts from findings in cave on display.
