This was an awesome tour, but you have to be in decent shape to enjoy it. The tour consists of crawling on all fours, low army crawling, climbing/bouldering, and hiking. There are a handful of VERY tight spaces to crawl through, so if you are...More

The Wild Cave is not a place you go to get awed and inspired by beautiful rock formations or sediments. No, this is for those that want to spend 6 hours crawling through dirt and rock, sometimes in your belly as you belly crawl 20...More

How often does one get to crawl, squeeze, and hike in the longest cave in the world? Sign up for the Wild Cave Tour in Mammoth Cave National Park, KY, for an amazing 51/2 miles that is both challenging & exhilarating. One has to be...More

This tour is what they explain. If you are at ALL claustrophobic or uneasy with hits DO NOT DO IT. You will be crawling under rocks for miles. You will be climbing cliffs and squeezing through small openings. The rocks are moist in some spots...More

We loved our Mammoth Cave "Niagara Falls" tour. The guide was knowledgeable and lots of fun. The bus driver had us a little scared with his fast, crazy driving, but it added to the experience. We didn't know a ride like that was included in...More

When you make you reservation read the fine print. As they go to great lengths to say on their website, Mammoth Cave and the National Park System may deny you access to the tour at their discretion. It happened to a member of our party....More

Hi everyone, I'm looking to plan a trip to Mammoth Cave in September. I was particularly excited to do the Wild Cave Tour. Does anyone know whether it's available on WEEKDAYS after Labor Day (week after)? The fall schedule hasn't been released yet and likely won't be released until much later in the summer. Would really like to know if anyone has been able to get on this tour (during the weekdays, in the fall) in past years!
