There are lots of superlatives you could use for this magical place. But it was "truly amazing".
Our guide "crusty" was very knowledgeable, easy to listen to and passionate about the cave.
We experienced total blackness and silence when the lights were switched off, a unique opportunity, only in a cave.
A must visit if you are in the area.

Thank robert c

Dear Urvilliana,

Thanks for taking the time to post a review of your experience at Jewel Cave. We're glad to hear that the tour had such an impact on you. Of course we fully understand, it's quite mind-blowing to be standing face to face with a million years worth of sparkling delicate meticulously-formed cave crystal. And Rikki knows the cave inside out, and her passion is obvious.

Thanks again and all the best for your future travels.

After the tour in this cave, it made me wish that I had time to visit the other one too!

Our tour was conducted by Crusty who was seasoned and managed the group well. Besides giving detailed history of the cave and how the formations came about, he also worked in some humour and was happy to answer any questions.

Towards the end of the tour, all the lights were switched off for awhile and we experience complete darkness inside the cave for less than a minute. If you have a phobia of darkness then take note!

I visited the cave with my aunt and 9 years old sun. The guide Crusty was absolutely perfect. Well informed, very professional and funny. It was a great pleasure.
