While driving home to Louisiana from Gatlinburg we decided to stop off at Ruby Falls to allow the kids some time out of the car. All of our children (7,2,1) loved it! Lots of lights light up the walk to the waterfall that kept their...More

I expected to be a bit claustrophobic but this tour was so interesting and so well lit I never one felt closed in. The falls are well worth seeing.

Take a little time out of your day and take the Ruby Falls tour. We had Dustin as our guide and he was fantastic. You'll enjoy the beautiful ride up the hill and the views once you are there. DO IT!!

Our guide was friendly, informative, and funny. The cave is beautiful and the walking path makes it an easy journey, just be ready to duck occasionally. The falls were gorgeous and the history and diary entries from Leo Lambert were really interesting.

Hi, I am the corporate communications manager for Ruby Falls. We don’t have a launch date yet timed tour tickets but it will be sometime this spring in April or May. We are very excited about it!
