My wife and I had to kill a damp afternoon. Looked at things to do in Bristol and the Caverns were highly recommended. We arrived at 3pm, paid our $15 and expected a canned guided tour through a limestone cavern. The tour exceeded our expectations....More

Tours kick off every 30 minutes or so. Guides explain the history of the caverns and take you through all the accessible areas. One area has quite a few steps, but you can take it as slow as you need to. Our family of three,...More

Visiting a cavern was on my bucket list. Unfortunately, my friend and I both use canes and have breathing problems. Bristol Caverns had the fewest steps of those I reviewed, had handrails, and seemed doable. We couldn't have been more pleased. The tour guide, Josie,...More

We had a great tour guide and it was just our friend and family for the tour we were on. It was a well maintained cavern and much less "touristy" than Ruby Falls and other caverns we have been to. Bristol Caverns was worth the...More
