Access to the cave is by open top/sides passenger trailer. Driver narrates the tour. If you've never been to a cave before = fantastic. We've been to a lot...the formations are basic. But, the history and the ride are unique. No exhaust vehicle used.

Really enjoyed the ride into the caverns. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Gift shop was a little lacking. And the admission is a little pricey. Still a great experience.

The tour is around 45 min., but one of the best tours I've ever been on. The guide is very informative with the history and friendly.
