The tour itself is really nice and had the potential to be interesting, but with bored people talking about minerals and rocks, it’s not selling for me.

My 7 year old daughter had been asking to visit here for the last three months. I surprised her on a "secret destination day" and she had been thrilled ever since. It is extraordinary, beautiful, and worth every penny. Go. Do it. Now.

We decided to take both tours and had fun looking around the gift shop in between. Everything is setup very well. If you like gemstones you'll be happy to browse.

If you are a city dweller, the trip to the caverns is almost as exciting as the destination. Rural farm towns with corn fields flanking one lane roads. Wild turkeys, huge hawks, chickens, cows, goats, sheep...we saw it all. The cavern site was pretty as...More

Do the combo pack; it is the best way to see the entire cavern. One is mostly history and the other is mostly formations but each gives you a different perspective. This is one of the most colorful caverns I have ever been in; it...More
