when we arrived and saw the old "store" building we were not sure if we are in the right place. We purchased tickets, kids went to the store to buy some gifts. Prices are very reasonable, I would say 50% less then any souvenir store in town. Then we took a trip with very funny, knowledgable girl. We took beautiful pictures and have great memories.

We saw the signs on our way to Gatlinburg and decided we would try to visit it. Boy are we glad we fit the stop in on our way back to Memphis. It was one of the best caves we have been in. It is huge and very easy to get around in. There are 87 steps to descend into the cave and you come out the same way but they let you take your time and it'd not that bad. There are so many beautiful formations, stalactites and stalagmites, flowing river throughout, a beach area, fresh drinking water you can try, a waterfall, and much more. Our guide was great and knew her stuff. She answered all our questions and gave a lot of history and bits of info that made it very interesting. Experiencing total darkness was cool and they ask if everyone is OK with it and you can speak up at any time if you get uncomfortable with it. I highly recommend this tour, wear good walking shoes. It was not as cold down there as it has been in other caves. Maybe because of its size. My son and I loved it.

I went with my 15 year old son and we loved it. Lots of picture opportunities and our guide was very knowledgeable. Very interesting history of the caves.

We visited there and the cavern is beautiful. Do beware that there are a lot of stairs. I didnt count them but between going and returning back probably over 200. The temperature is very comfortable. A light jacket is all that is needed. Our guide was wonderful. She loved her job as you could hear it in everything she described about the cavern. Be prepared to walk and bend over going through parts of the cavern. There are resting points along the way with a few benches. You do have to be careful with small children as there are steep edges without any railings.

wow, what a cool and exciting place to see, our guide was so great, treated us all with respect and loved taking about where we were all from in the US. you would not think that the beautiful caverns were breath taking under ground.
