We took the domes and drip stones tour. It is the one with 500 stairs but they're mostly downhill. If you are tall or your shoulders etc are wide, you may be a little uncomfortable for parts. You will have to duck your head or...More

We did four different Cave tours and only did a very small amount of repeat. Also, hiked surface trails and they were excellent. Be sure to ride the ferry.

We visited on May 14th, Mother's Day, and took the Domes and Dripstones tour. While we didn't have any trouble navigating the steps and passageways, some on our tour certainly did. Before you book a tour, read carefully to find a tour right for you...More

We just returned from Mammoth Cave after four days camping. We took three Cave tours and as seniors we received a 50% discount on the tours. BOOK YOUR TOURS WELL IN ADVANCE. It is very difficult making reservations. We had better luck calling Reserve America...More

We recently visited Mammoth Cave National Park on Sunday, May 7, 2017. We were amazed at how friendly and personable the staff was. We took the Frozen Niagara tour with our 6 year old and 3 year old. I can't remember our tour guide's name...More

Took the Historic Tour and the Domes & Dripstones - 2 very different aspects of the cave. Be prepared for lots of stairs, uneven footing and twisty windy paths.

We arrived to discover at 12.00 midday no tours available for at least 3.5 hours. This was extremely disappointing so we couldn't wait so had to leave without visiting the caves!!! No everyone is able to call ahead to make a reservation. We were unable...More

Advance reservations are essential, especially during the peak tourist season. I saw four caves over two days. My favorites were the Historic Tour and Cleaveland Avenue. The Domes and Dripstones and Great Onyx Caves were also good. Each tour is about two hours. Do not...More

We are thinking of doing two tours over the weekend and would love advice about what to book Our group has a couple of 9-year-olds, teenagers, and their parents. I think that the Historic Tour looks good, and others are interested in the lantern tour. Too much of the same thing? Thanks for your advice!
