What Are People Saying About Us?

Do the combo pack; it is the best way to see the entire cavern. One is mostly history and the other is mostly formations but each gives you a different perspective. This is one of the most colorful caverns I have ever been in; it really is neat. Amie S.
Took the Natural wonder tour with a group on a 4H trip. Kids enjoyed the sites, staff was very friendly and tour guide was very good at keeping things interesting for the kids. Overall it was a good experience. Daniel C.
