  • I thought it was a very great few hrs of fun. Very nice tour guides, great views In the cave, cool wildlife like salamanders and types of exotic frogs in the cave, and perfect for families and people who wanna explore caves but are claustrophobic because there is a decent amount of room. Along with a very cool 1880 town of actual houses, church, bank, and grocery store built in the 1800s!.
  • Loved the cave; however we did the last tour of the day and we had no idea that we couldn't do the village or the gift shop once the tour was over. Felt the tour was rushed and weren't allowed ample time for photos. We only got 1/2 of what we paid for. They lost $ from us on what we would have spent in the gift shop. I would like to say we'd be back, but I think we'll try elsewhere first.
