  • Jeffery was a funny and knowledgeable tour guide! We had a great time!! We learned a lot and the structures were so amazing. Definitely recommend.  more »
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our guide was informative, witty and attentive. The formations in this cavern are amazing.  more »
  • A beautiful facility with something for everyone. The caverns are beautiful but not set up for large groups. Our guide didn't handle the group very well; there was a lot of chatter which made it hard to hear what he was saying. We loved the picnic area by the water and would love to bring our whole family there.
  • Best cavern tour in the area (compared to the other well-marketed caverns). Each "room" in the tour has something different to offer and the tour guide was very personable and knowledgeable. My 12 year old was fascinated. Grand Caverns, please market this hidden gem better! It is worth the trip. Highly recommended.
