The Cave is beautiful and interesting. The acoustics were great for the concert. They could make improvements on standing in line and shuttling people in and out with the elevators.

Such a stunning tour. Takes about 45 minutes. There's a flat walkway etched into the cave to help but some spots are slippery and others are steep. Great tour guides.

Took the Dripstone tour. Pathways are good but in some places sloping down, so you need to go slow. It is amazing what grows underground. Guide was good. Cost not too bad.

I have been to a few of these places both in Europe and the US a Blanchard Springs Caverns is right up there with the best. The guide was very informative and kept his information light and humorous at times...I think his name was Dale. We plan to go back and try the longer tour that goes much deeper into... More

We were so impressed with the tour of the cave and the Park Ranger's knowledge of the features in the cave.

A must see when in the area. The drive to Blanchard Springs is beautiful. The Caverns are very pretty with 3 levels of difficulty available. Afterwards, ride to the springs. You won't regret it.

The caverns are nice, The tour may not be the best for small children since they get bored after about 20 minutes.
