Beautiful systems of caverns with great guided tour. Was fortunate enough to see a one the salamanders that live down there and our guide even sang for us to show off the amazing acoustics of the cavern.

We went to see these amazing caverns in October. Wonderful tour guide (young woman), the story about this cave was so fascinating! Our two boys 9 and 7 years old also had the best time. Highly recommend and an absolute must visit!

Our guide, Terry, said he was 70yo, has the energy of a 30yo. He is very informative! Patient & makes sure you enjoy yourself. Well worth your time & money. Artifacts from findings in cave on display.

These huge and beautiful caverns are well worth your time and money. Discovered by two intrepid boys in 1931, the business is still operated by the descendants of one of them. The entrance building and gift shop have moved beyond being "out-dated" to being delightfully...More

We were in Townsend to photograph Cades Cove in the morning and evening. Stopped at Tuckaleechee because of the reviews on Tripadvisor in the late morning and it was worth the effort. Yes there are a few steps, but we are in our early 60's...More

The caverns are absolutely amazing, 1/2 a mile long tour took 2 hours, lots of steps to climb, and a bit chill ( 58° year round ) but so much to see! This is not your average tiny cave, it has huge chambers and is...More

You drive right up to the entrance and gift shop. Once inside the cave, the walk is rather strenuous and make sure you wear proper shoes.
