Our tour guide, Tate was very informative! He did a great job explaining the Cave's history and showing off the acoustics of the cave. He has a great singing voice.

My family enjoyed our visit to the cave. Our tour guide was excellent, it lasted for about 1.5 hours. Be sure to bring light jacket, comfortable shoes because there are a lot of stairs, and camera! Overall, I would recommend this place.

Beautiful caverns! We have noticed the sign over the years for Tuckaleechee Caverns and decided to visit. Well worth the time and money. Expect some stairs, over 400, so wear comfortable shoes. If you have small children you will be carrying them so that is...More
