PROS: affordable with AAA discount; tour at your own pace; beautiful cave formations ; an easy 45 min stop at least; affordable and diverse gift shop; small free exhibits with mostly casts of different dinos.

CONS: people with disabilities can’t do it as it has plenty of slippery, steep stairs. Can be crowded as you are self guided so may be trouble with family pics. That long dirt road can have you worrying about damaging your tires or losing air.

This was such a cool place to visit on our way down to South Carolina. Very friendly staff. We liked that it was a self-guided tour that we could do at our own pace. We learned a lot and would definitely visit again!

I thought I would be scared to go to the caverns, but it wasn't scary at all. The guide was young and knowledgeable. Seems like he was probably a college student. Quite interesting and educational for all ages.

One thing I hate about tours is having to wait for all the other people in my group to move one. So this was perfect because we could move at our own pace. There were signs that explained the big details that you would want to know. Good walk and not too long.

We were so glad we decided to take this self-guided tour. Although I had a knee injection a month ago and debated doing the tour, other reviews convinced me to do it. The hand rails were very helpful. You can do it at your own pace. There were four adults and a 2-year old in our group and it took us about an hour. All did well and we throughly enjoyed it!
