The cave tour is very educational and a very nice tourist Cave. Located in Townsend Tennessee which is known as the peaceful side of the Smokies. All age groups will be amazed by the beauty of the cave. A cool way to spend A day.

This place is great hidden adventure. The Tour of this Cavern was amazing, "Great tour guide, JILL" Our first cavern with the family and everyone enjoyed it. Was a comfortable 58degrees, since you are underground. The history behind this cavern was also pretty intersting. If you are in this area, I would definitely recommend making the trip to see this...

The caverns were beautiful. The tour was easy enough to do with young children. Our guide was very knowledgable. Temperatures are cool, bring a sweatshirt on tour. Bring an empty water bottle, we were able to drink the filtered water in the caverns along the way. There is a waterfall on the tour, best place to take pictures, make sure... More

Don't go to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge and miss the opportunity to check out this huge cavern. It is not touristy like Ruby Falls. It is privately owned and run by the family that discovered the cavern years ago. Every 20 minutes they take tours under ground for about 1.5 hrs and you get to see so many interesting formations....

It was a great tour. I always love the part where they turn out the lights. The waterfall was beautiful! My 6 year old grandson found it interesting.

We decided to stop by on our motorcycles on our way home and WOW!!! Well worth the trip!!! Our guide was very informative and the best part was that we learned that the cavern is still privately owned by one of the families that discovered it!!!

A wonderful experience for all ages. Didn't realize there was a waterfall on the tour, until we got there-a very nice treat! I found the seismograph quite amusing!

We took our 3 children, ages 5-10, and everyone loved it. Sarah was excellent, so knowledgeable and kind- a gem. I didn't expect it to be so beautiful under there. My only caution to parents- there are some steep slopes and lots of stairs going in and out, so I wouldn't bring little guys that tend to dart!
