Frankly, I wasn't expecting much from the Caverns, but was pleasantly surprised by the various formations, Caverns and stream within. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. There are a lot of steps so I wouldn't recommend this attraction to anyone who has trouble walking. Conveniently...More

Quite the different views from the Smoky Mountains and worth the trip. The tour guide, Gavin, was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of history and info on the caverns. We saw a variety of rock formations and waterfalls. Everyone there was very friendly.

You drive right up to the entrance and gift shop. Once inside the cave, the walk is rather strenuous and make sure you wear proper shoes.
