We traveled to Louisville to do something a little different for my sons birthday who is a student at the University of Louisville. I heard about this adventure two years ago and put it on our bucket list to do. It was a great family day and Max and Nathan made it even more fun, interesting and educational!

Max and Nathan were hilarious. The zip line tour was so much fun and I was only mildly terrifieda few times! I would personally like to thank our tour guides for being cool about me being nervous and never EVER teasing me about it at all (much sarcasm). You guys "rock." Seriously an awesome time! Thank you both so much!!... More

Louisville Mega Cavern has several different services, our group did the underground zip line tour. It was a lot of fun. Our tour guides, Nathan and Max, were great. They were really knowledgeable of the caverns, they made some corny jokes but they knew they were being corny and by the end of the tour you felt like old friends.... More

Really great time Zip lining. Nathan and Max were great tour guides. They asked us if we needed to go to the bathroom before we zipped. Jokes on them, I peed myself while zipping instead. Too spooky for me!

In our visit to Kentucky, we came across this truly magnificent cavern in which you can zip line all the way through! Our tour guides were Paige and Evan, two lovely locals that were both entertaining and humorous. They made us feel welcomed, excited, and most of all - safe. The cavern is huge and looks similar to one I... More

Went on the zip line tour with Max and Candra. Had a great time with them. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you for the restaurant recommendation (Feast). It was excellent.
