For a small, family owned experience, this was good. The tour guides are fun and knowledgeable and the cavern itself is pretty impressive. Don’t know what this is like in a busy day, but it was well worth the trip and the money.

This tour was really great and the tour guide made the walk through really fun and interesting. The temperature inside is 52 degrees all year round and it’s a perfect temperature to be in, in the winter or summer.
