WOW! One of the beautiful place to experience! We did not plan this at all, and it was worth it! Luckily we all wore comfy shoes. The tour is fun and beautiful, not crowded at all, my toddlers had fun too which is rare! It can get tiring with toddlers (4 and 2 years old) since there are steep narrow stairs/pathway you can't take a pushchair. (Or wheelchairs). My two year old fell asleep eventually so had to carry her! Worth going there, the souvenir store (which the kids loved the most!) and food (we ordered burgers) are also worth visiting, parking is easy.
Wife and I visited today and it would seem we were the only two there because of the weather. It was awesome! no people in the photos and silence to enjoy mother nature! For about an hour it seemed we had a personal tour of the cave. It was great to go off season. Military discount of 10% so for the two of us it cost $36. But where else can you see million year old live specimens? Worth the time if in the area, and as a show cave they seem to have the lighting perfect on the water for the illusion effects. Thanks for reading.Videos On the YouTube Channel. Some of the Photos taken with the iPhone 5S, not bad considering the lighting.
A very nice place for a weekend.. Well preserved history.. Kids will also enjoy the experience in my opinion though these days its hard to impress kids. Nice souvenir stores to grab a thing or two.
This place is well worth the trip and the price. My wife and I took the cave tour and it was great. It lasted about a hour to a hour and fifteen minutes. We also had lunch and that was good too. We went in their slower season so the only things open were the cave and their restaurant and gift shop. They do have other activities like a zip line across the river, gem mining, canoe trips, boat rides and other stuff. Over all our trip was a great experience.
Beautiful place to go. Very knowledgeable tour guide really enjoyed it. What a great place to go gorgeous The only problem I had was the guide had to keep telling this couple with a small child to stop touching the walls (I am not talking about the child either)
