This is a pretty neat adventure to take, once. Please don't let that dissuade you from going. How many times in your life are you going to get to see an underground waterfall, in a cave? Our tour guide was Martin and he was awesome!...More

nice, leisurely paced walk through a cavern... Amazing waterfall - would have actually liked it if they didn't have music since it wasn't needed, nothing like the sound of running water.

Really enjoyed the cave & falls, but had a few too many people on my tour so it was hard to hear the guide. Still enjoyed very much!

This was really worth it and very lovely. Quite a long walk for really small children though. The history was well told and pretty. Kids from around 5 will be fine.

A must do in Chattanooga TN. The guides were fun and interactive. The falls were beautiful. Can be chilly and wet under ground.

I think overall this was a great experience. I am a little claustrophobic and with the amount of people going back and forth to the falls. I found my self wanting to get out. I managed to make it through and it was pretty cool....More

Our tour guide Doug, was a perfect tour guide. Made the almost 1/2 mile underground walk hilarious and fun, while also keeping order and explaining things well. The cave tour is just as good as nearly any I've been in even without the amazing falls...More

There were no dogs there - I don't think it would be a good place to bring a dog unless it was a service dog. I would definitely call first.

Yes I believe so! We saw several service dogs in our tour. You should check anyway, just to be sure. Have fun!
