We were leaving from a weekend and as we stopped in Horse Cave to tour Hidden River, Anthony told us before we leave we needed to check out Crystal Onyx.

So glad we took his advice.

Crystal Onyx was the highlight of the whole weekend.

It is a privately owned Cave. They have a gift shop, a very clean porta potty, and it is a very personal and knowledgeable tour they take you on.

The tour is an hour long and they take no more than 12 in a group. You are not rushed and the formations are beautiful!

It is very well lit and they’ve put a lot of hard work into restoring this to make it accessible and an easy tour for anybody.

This is a very live, wet cave that you will get “cave kisses” if your the lucky one.

Sarah took us on our tour along with another couple. She was very personal, knowledge and friendly.

This is a must see, the formations are beautiful!

WOW! This cave is a delight. The formations are very actively growing and therefore you get frequent "cave kisses". It is reasonable priced and with only a maxi of 12 people per tour, it's very personal. The owners are passionate about their cave and can entertain you prior to the tour as well as during. The gift shop is a fossil lovers delight. A must see cave.

We were lucky to have a private tour with the owner and were able to see parts the cave that are not available to a bigger group. Highly recommended as an alternative option to Mammoth cave. They are not mammoth but spectacular! You should not miss this!

Crystal Onyx Cave is a thousand times better than Mammoth!! There are tons more formations. There was very little waiting for a tour. The staff was personal and took time to answer questions and teach us about the cave. Very reasonable entrance fee! This one really is SPECTACULAR!!
