Our family enjoyed the caves. We had a great time viewing the different formations and our guide was very friendly and allowed us to take pictures and answered all our questions. We loved the part about the "bacon" and how it forms.

We visited these caverns on a hot summer day and it felt so good. The caverns are exactly what I thought they would be and then some. I think I enjoyed them more than when I visited Luray Caverns in Virginia! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. She watched out for everyone in the... More

We were upset to have another day of rain on our vacation but decided to find some indoor things to do. Visited the Caverns today and has a great time. Very interesting and the tour guide was great. I recommend this tour rain or shine!

This tour was so awesome. The caves were breathtaking. It was a lengthy tour but felt like it went by in an instant. Pictures just don't do it justice. Our tour guide was great. It's a must see!

The caves we're beautiful, but our tour guide was boring. Not to mention that about 90% of his facts we're complete lies. If you're going to have a place like that, at least know the true history of the people. It has potential to be a great spot. But the guides need a little... Umph.

We saw the signs on our drive home from Pigeon Forge and decided to stop and take the tour on 5/4. We had a very good time. Our guide was very informative and answered all our questions. We enjoyed our tour, it was just a little over an hour. There is some interesting history regarding the cave.

This was a very informative and fun stop my wife and I made on our way home from the Smoky Mountain area. It isn't for the faint of heart though. The tour is a pretty good hike through the underground cave, but we made it even being significantly overweight. We were exhausted by the end of the hour long tour.... More

This is one place you have to check out. So beautiful and full of history. The tour was a great length (about an hour) and the tour guide gave us some very interesting information about the caverns.

These caves are spectacular and the guided tour is very interesting. If you are in this area you must visit. Wear good shoes as it is slippery in places and uneven. Only downside is it does not open until April 1. We were very lucky as that was the day we were leaving so were able to fit it in... More
