There are a variety of tours available. Although the Ranger was entertaining, if I had it to do over again I would have taken a self-guided tour. Visitor center and adjacent gift stores were very nice.

Great experience. Awesome cave. Lots of walking. My daughter had some asthmatic symptoms while in the cave. Bring the inhaler if this is an issue for you. Once she took the inhaler we continued on. Worth the trip.

We truly enjoyed our hour long tour. Our guide knew what he was talking about. All the Park Rangers were helpful and friendly. If we ever get back down there we would visit again for another tour.

Are there good roads for motorcycle touring?

Response from wewhynot | Reviewed this property |
Most of the roads I went on were fairly good roads. However, National Park roads have lower speed limits. I don't see any reason why you couldn't do a motorcycle tour of the park roads.

We stayed at the Sleep Inn and Suites in Cave City. It was a new hotel. We were VERY pleased with it!
