The guided tour was very good. The guide was well informed and entertaining. Well worth a visit to experience a dry cave which is easily accessible for those who can climb stairs.

Highly recommend spending some time in this area. There are many beautiful hikes. We did the shorter Burgess hike. We also did the guided tour of the caves. Was really informative and enjoyable.

The caves (at least those that the tour visits) are limited in scope and being "dry" not as interesting as some. Our guide was quite interesting and tried his best but it feels like he had to drag it out to make the 45 min...More

Took this cave tour on a whim and came out pleasantly surprised. Had a great guide, who is also a local "cave dweller", and he was a wealth of information. Such a great experience and safe for kids too!
