I’ve been on this tour numerous times in the past. It never disappoints and is always fun no matter how young and old for the kids. Our tour guide Shelby was super awesome and gave us a great tour, I wish I would’ve had cash on me for a tip at the end because she def deserved one. Also if I’m not mistaken I believe it was Eric who did the boat tour and he also was good and fun on the boat tour. I cannot wait till I come back to Tennessee again. This is a place that my family will always visit.
The tour was ok and the cave was amazing, but yesterday when we went with our family the tour guide was a bit bland and blunt. He seemed a bit more keen on yelling at us then having a fun tour. When we got to the boat ride in the lake room, the young girl was much happier and seemed to be enjoying her job. Even if she was stuck down there all day. We were lucky enough to get on her boat and had a blast! She was very funny and made the boat ride the best part of our trip. It’s such a shame though that they would stick her down there all day. I would much rather have had her as a tour guide then the young man. He came off a bit rude. I don’t remember either on of there names though, but she made the trip better. I still think this cave is worth checking out and if you’re lucky you’ll get stuck with someone fun like her.
Just visited for the first time and we WILL come back!!! Highly recommend!! My children and I loved it. Our tour guide Tyler was fantastic and very informative. Thank you LOST SEA for a great memory!
This is a great place to take the family. Its a great cave to go down into and the little boat ride half way through is cool for the kids as They loved seeing the fish. They also have other tours you can do if you don't mind tight spaces but the main tour is great for everyone.
I've wanted to come here for years. It did not disappoint. It offered a unique (albeit a little short) experience and the kids enjoyed it. The cave walk through is really not too difficult (I'm kind of an out of shape guy) and did the walk back with my 3 year old on my shoulders most of the way. I only wish I didn't feel quite so rushed. It takes these cave flowers and other cave formations millions of years to grow and we get 30 seconds to glance at them as we pass by. The gift shop was nice and not too overly priced. My wife was concerned about our 3 year old not having a life jacket. They did not tell us until we got there that the seat cushions act as flotation devices. The boat ride is relatively calm and I feel after having been on it that it's safe for young children. I say it's something worth doing once in your life and maybe again when the kids are older. Worth the price of admission and they offer a military discount.
