Not too long, not too short. Well worth the time. Try not to get on a tour with lots of kids. Easy walk through the cave, and the falls are impressive. Take time to drive to the top of the mountain.

It was a great time with family but the best part was not the natural rock formations, hundred foot underground waterfall or the lightshow. It was Doug our tour guide. He was so personable and he connected with each person. Great time all around.

As an adult, I enjoyed this much more than when they parents brought me here as a kid. Beautiful place to visit and very exciting if you have any interest in geology. Staff does a nice job of running the tour.

Ruby fallsnis an amazing experience to go see. Breathtaking views with lots of history. A tour guide takes you through the whole thing and tells you all about the history of the falls. There are narrow and tight spaces so if you are claustrophobic, you...More

Your wife should be fine. I would have her wear comfortable walking shoes and be careful of some of the slick areas. It is a beautiful, easy walk and well worth it.

I didn't see anyone scan their mobile. Everyone had a paper ticket. I don't know if they can or can't scan mobile, but I never saw anyone try.
