Discovery Tour is worth the time and money. You will get to see all the different rooms and caverns, see a lot of formations, the caves opening, underground river and bats!

The cave was beautiful. The last tour of the day and the guides turned their heads as guest touched and broke off some keep sake things. That frustrated me greatly. If this continues to happen there will not be a cave to see and enjoy.

Arrived late in the day but plenty time to take the last tour of the day (4:30)! The entire staff are friendly, knowledgeable professionals who are passionate about the park. Views here are absolutely worth the trip.

This is one of the most beautiful show caves in the entire country. If you're in decent shape and can handle lots of stairs and walking, take the Discovery Tour. It's a fascinating experience that combines cave geology with area history. The guides are knowledgeable...More

I would certainly not take small children on the longer tour. It is over an hour long and there are dangerous areas where they need constant supervision. I would recommend the dripstone tour at their ages.
