We arrived just in time for the last tour of the day. There was quite a mixed group taking the tour mainly from the US but all very friendly. There is a little walk to the cavern through a wooded area. The guide was really interesting to listen to and he made sure he included everyone - especially the kids.... More

On a Friday around 1:00 I called and the man said the last cave tour was at around 4:00 and I told him I would see how many in our group wanted to go and hoped to see him. Upon our arrival at 3:00 there was a sign saying that the last cave tour was in progress and there would... More

Probably one of the most impressive caves I've ever been in. The formations are breathtaking, and Kevin, our guide not only was knowledgable about this cave in particular but about general cave knowledge as he is into spelunking. You can tell that much pride is taken in this place and we recommend it highly to anyone who takes caving adventures.

Our group was recently camping in the area and decided to take a tour of the cave and village here. Upon pulling in the parking lot we almost bailed on this adventure based on the appearances of the exterior of the business; grass was tall and weeds have overtaken the flower beds. We decided to give it a try anyway.... More

Now we were not told that you have to be ready to hike up steep stairs to get out. The cave and the surrounding 1800's village needs lots of care. Looks like no one has done anything in a long time to keep anything up. My group was disipointed in the whole overall experance . What a shame to let... More

When we first pulled up to this place I was hesitant to get out of the car. It looks really run down on the outside but inside was actually very nice. The owner was very very nice and the college-aged tour guide was very knowledgeable and was a good guide. It was super hot the day we visited so the... More
