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.
What an amazing place! I did the legacy tour which was not the crawling around I expected, but more climbing over huge rock piles and boulders over and over to see various "rooms" within the cave system. Not only did it appear at first glance that there were no passages out of some of the rooms, there were all these little holes/tunnels? that looked like I could slither into that really had my imagination going. It reminded me of The Goonies, sans pirate ship. Best birthday adventure ever! Plus I got my most favorite and most comfortable sweatshirt ever from the gift shop. Definitely will return next year!
The caverns are amazing! God created a beautiful place and the park has kept its beauty natural. It is a must see! Our guide, Lydia, was great. Friendly, energetic, and full of historical knowledge about the cave's discovery. There is also an interactive experience as they allow you to experience what it was like for the founder of the cave - an eye opening experience for comparison of today's time versus 100+ years ago.
Unique experience, went on adventure tour. If you can do a couple of push-ups without getting out of breath, the tours are doable. Guides are courteous and safe.
