Let’s do a cave tour – but make it exclusive… and give it a little extra sparkle!

Bring your family and friends for a private VIP tour through Cumberland Caverns. A guide will take you and your group through the cavern on a private walking tour with an added bonus — a trip back to the end of the 10-acre room to see the Devil’s Quarry by lantern light.

Guests on this extended tour will experience sights and discoveries previously reserved for adventure customers only.

No worries — you won’t be doing any crawling or climbing on this tour, but you will learn and see more than ever before on your private tour of the cavern.

MINIMUM 10-DAY ADVANCE RESERVATION REQUIRED!

Not a big planner and in a hurry? Check out our PUBLIC walking tours. The DISCOVERY and the CARDWELL are available multiple times a day every day, and the LANTERNS & LEGENDS is available on select dates as the last tour of the day.
