Way different national park in that everything is underground. Need to be prepared to hike down into caves about 500 feet. Although there are recently finished paths there are areas which require sure footing, bending into smaller areas, low ceilings (watch your head), some areas...More

Great to see the caves but a lot of walking. Read about each tour to see if you are up to it. The descriptions are very accurate. But, they do not mention the hill you have to walk down and back up. Park rangers are...More

Most tours sell out days in advance. There is a small amount of self guided, short tours that have spots for "walk ins," but they're not the "best" tours, or the most to see. Best to read the descriptions of the tours and... More

We did the historic tour and the domes and dripstones tours in the same day with our six year old and he handled both well but he says historic was his favorite.
