Fun and Interesting Tour
Nov. 2021 • Friends
It was a fun tour. Curtis was an excellent guide. Definitely very wet but still enjoyable. Some climbing and one tight spot (grater) although this was optional.

Amazing caves tour
Nov. 2021 • Friends
The multi cave experience tour was absolutely incredible. Our tour guide Curtis was cracking funny jokes the whole time while educating us on the geology and environmental features of the landscape. I learnt so many news things and would for sure come back to do the 5-hour extreme tour some time. The caves themselves were so cool and Curtis made the experience 10x better. Overall 10/10 recommend, I had a great time. Thank you!

Had a great time! It was my second tour through, and had just as much fun the second time around. Our guide Curtis made the trip with his amazing puns, information and humour.

Caves: 10/10 I hope I see bats next time!
Guide: 10/10
Puns: 10/10

**road to caves 1/10. Horrible pot holes. Seriously so bad. Give yourself like an extra 20 minutes so you can go 2 km/hr and try and dodge them. **

Can't wait for the longer "extreme" cave tour to open next summer!!

Very Memorable
Oct. 2021
Our group consisted of 2 kids and 4 adults of varying abilities. Our guide Curtis was patient with all the kids questions and did an excellent job of explaining what we were doing/seeing, making sure all of us went at our own pace. The highlight for our group was climbing up the waterfall, a very unique experience and was really quite accessible despite putting us a little out of our comfort zone. Thank you Curtis and Horne Lake Cave for the great work you do in conserving our natural caves. We'll definitely be back.

Amazing experience!
Sep. 2021 • Solo
If you're thinking about it, just do it! Our guide Curtis was fun, knowledgeable and helped us feel safe & supported the whole time. The walk to the caves and first cave are very manageable regardless of fitness; just some crouching and walking over rocks. Second cave has a bit more climbing and tight spaces, but you don't need a high fitness level at all. I went solo, but this would be great for couples and families with kids too. Definitely coming back when they offer the 5-hour tour again!

This was an amazing experience for my first time doing caves. Curtis was our groups guide and really made the experience a good time, he was funny and incredibly knowledgeable. I’d highly recommend doing any of these tours, and with Curtis guiding you your experience will only be that much more memorable and amazing. Thank you for the amazing memories.

Multi Cave Experience - Awesome!!
Aug. 2021
We loved it! We have been to a number of caves and and it's interesting seeing the differences in them. These are not large but they still have great formations. As an older person, I found them to be more challenging than other caves, but as a previous reviewer said, it's exciting when you're finished and you did it! Curtis is an awesome guide and so informative. He really made the experience better.
