We loved the tour and the guide was very thorough. It took about an hour and well worth it! I recommend it to anyone that likes this type of outing.

The cave itself has some beautiful formations. However no one warned us we were going to be dripped on continually. It was a rainy day when we came but no one told us the cave continually drips. The stairs were extremely narrow, steep and were standing in water. The guide was funny and informative. The light show wasn't enjoyable at... More

It may not stand to the grandeur of other large caverns and cave in the US, but it certainly has a natural touch to it - meaning no fancy artificial stuff and lighting to commercialize and buy tourist footfalls. Its about a 100 feet deep, has about 200-250 steps (100 down and 150 back up approx) and may not be... More

We really enjoyed learning all about the history of these caverns. It was very hard to hear so next time we will stick to the front of the line. There is a lot of steps to walk up and can be slippery. I do not recommend this for children under the age of 4. We had a toddler in our... More

After calling to make sure they were open we made the drive out to see the cave. We pulled up and the lady running the front said they decided to close early. It would've been nice if someone told us that when we called. What a waste of our time! We got there at 2:30pm and they were to close... More

We recently closed early for our staff Christmas party. However, this is a rare exception. Please accept my apology if our staff did not alert you to this when you called to ask if we were open. More

My husband and I have enjoyed visiting many underground caverns and this one did not disappoint us. If you are a fan of caverns don't miss this one.

We have a home three miles from this attraction. Our youngest granddaughter has visited Talking Ricks with us maybe six times. Our last visit allowed her to use the crawling maze, pan for precious stones, take the dave tour, and shop for treasures in the shop. It is one of her favorite spots. Friendly and professional guides and staff, reasonably... More

Chuck was our guide and I think he did a great job. He made small talk with our boys and tried to answer their many questions about salamanders. I liked the science of cave development he explained - in an accessible way for all levels I think. Our 5 year old was a bit distracted during the talking bits -... More

My wife and I really enjoyed this tour - the staff was friendly and the site was well kept - if you have 50 mins to spare - I would do this - there are a lot of steps but it was worth it and the staff kept a great pace.

Nice tour of this gem of a cavern..the name is a bit misleading though there is a short lighyong and sound show, the only is by the tour.guide. This is a vertical cavern tour with a moew strenuous path than any other tour that I have ever been on. If you are not in pretty good shape, skip this one.... More
