The caverns were so amazing, I've never seen anything like it. You really can get up close and see the details of the cave, it's so well preserved. Our party of 11 was easily accommodated and it we hardly had to wait (on a Saturday, mind you). Our tour guide Jerry was super funny, knowledgable, and friendly. He had a great sense of humor, which added entertainment, but also provided a thorough description and history of the cavern. Definitely a must see!

This was a great stop for us while in Murphy's; we stopped here before having any wine tastings. It's a good thing too, because there are quite a few steps and a few seemingly precarious perches, but WOW what a beautiful experience. It was especially cool to hear the guide tell the stories of how it all came about. I also liked this cave better than Moaning caverns, as I felt less exposed and less vertigo here. Make sure you do this before the wineries though, or it might make for an awful time.

it was amazing the incredible scenary under the floor, that you can see in the caves with the natural formations of stalactites and stalagmites.

I can't say enough. This was one of the highlights of our trip. Amazing and interesting. Best tour guide ever! Jerry was funny and so informative. Not a tourist trap...this is the real deal. Great value for the money. Do not wear flip flops!!!
