We visited Appalachian Caverns on a Sunday afternoon and we were the only ones there. The tour guide was friendly. We enjoyed being able to do the crawls, and plan on going back to do the wild tour. Well worth the visit.

Went in the morning and had an enjoyable time. Interedtong to hear the history of the cave and area. Who knew the Confederate army used the cave as a hospital? Had a leisurely tour since there was body else there.

We have visited several caverns. The caverns themselves are very nice. I think more could be done to make the tours a little more interesting. The end of the tour had a twist, though. I was actually shocked to realize the guide turned the lights...More
