This past weekend's adventure was such a blast! This is 6 hours of exploring remote passages and tunnels. We got to squeeze into spots where you had to exhale before wiggling through. Other spots you had to rock climb your way from one shadowy room...More

The tour is very well organized. It is more like an introduction to caving with a taste of each common caving scenario. We also get to see a few famous spots in Mammoth Cave, though. The tour guides are not very patient in allowing us...More

Did this tour with my two teenage boys (must be 16 years old to go). This was big fun. 6 hours in the cave with lots of belly crawls through small passages (the "birth canal" was a personal favorite), walking across ledges over cave canyons,...More

Our family did the 4 hour Grand Avenue tour. It was a lot of fun. The 3rd mile requires some strength because it is challenging. Wish we could see more domes and dripstones. Definitely worth seeing.

This was an awesome tour, but you have to be in decent shape to enjoy it. The tour consists of crawling on all fours, low army crawling, climbing/bouldering, and hiking. There are a handful of VERY tight spaces to crawl through, so if you are...More

The Wild Cave is not a place you go to get awed and inspired by beautiful rock formations or sediments. No, this is for those that want to spend 6 hours crawling through dirt and rock, sometimes in your belly as you belly crawl 20...More
