This self guided tour seemed a little awkward at first but if you stay in the range of the headsets it's fine. The nice thing is, when you turn around to go back, you can listen to the tour again to see what you may...More

You are able to tour the cave by yourself, and you are provided with a headset. The staff is very friendly and eager to help with any questions you might have!

You wear headphones and listen to the history behind the cave. It was very amazing and beautiful. The gift shop is nice!

I enjoyed visiting the Onyx Cave, it is definitely worth the time and money. You are given headsets for this self guided tour which allows you to explore at your own pace. I really enjoyed the history and geological detail.
