Enthusiastic & knowledgeable tour given by 'Cave Dave'! We learned so much from Dave about how caves are formed, and about the composition of the caves. Dave runs the tours year-round and hires extra help during summers. I'm sure he trains the seasonal employees well,...More

For a four-day trip to the Shasta/Redding area, this was our kids' highlight of the trip. Your ticket includes a short pontoon boat ride across the lake, a kids favorite. This is followed by an exhilarating 15-minute bus ride up the mountain. There were several...More
