What an amazing experience! The tours are very organized with very knowledgeable tour guides. You do not have to worry about anything but listening and walking. The tour is about an hour long with over a mile-long walk. How awesome!

June is the perfect time to visit the Caverns. Make sure you arrive before mid-day. Odds are good you’ll get a good tour guide. It takes about an hour or so to complete your visit. You should ask questions too. The tour guides are a...More
