This is my 4th time in Tennessee and I have been here twice. Both times I had Colin as our tour guide, and he was very welcoming, funny, and knowledgeable. He would answer all our questions, make jokes, overall made the walking tour a very pleasurable experience. During the walking tour, he recommended the Higgenbotham’s Revenge tour. He was going to lead it on Saturday and because of how great he was on the walking tour, we decided to do it. It was one of the most memorable experiences I’ve had in Tennessee. So much much. Very highly recommend, but take knee pads and hiking boots.
I went last month with my husband as part of our honeymoon! There's not enough time in the world to express how great of a time we had. We did the overnight legacy tour because it was the "most extreme" and had a blast. The cave is beautiful with lots of cool parts to explore. The underground waterfalls we saw were awesome since it had been raining a lot in the surrounding area! We were there during off-season, so it wound up being just the two of us and our guide Kaley. She rocks!! Extremely sweet and informative. They were kind enough to rescue us in the middle of the night so we wouldn't get flooded in (the flood waters shut the cave down for 2 days!), and since we had to leave early they mailed us a gift package. Overall definitely recommended!!
One of the must seen attraction in Tennessee. We took lantern tour which is sort of intermediate difficulty level but covers more area than simple walking tour. Our guide Dalton was excellent. This was my second time being there and I can tell Dalton had more stories and details about the cave.
My wife and I took our Grandson, Connor, there today. Since it's still a little light business wise due to covid19 concerns, we were happy it wasn't real busy. There was another family of 5 with us making the 1-1/2 hour tour. Our tour guide, Justin, did a great job and did not slight us because of being a small group. He was full of information, took care of keeping us safe, and made it fun time. Highly recommend Justin if you can get him. If you've never been, I recommend Cumberland Caverns. It's an enjoyable opportunity to marvel at natural beauty and the of years it took Mother Nature to create it. Hats off to the brave explorers who discovered the caverns, explored it, and ultimately brought it to the public for their enjoyment.
