Skyline Caverns was amazing! When you get there, there’s a rustic gift shop with memorabilia, shirts, sweatshirts, crystals, jewelry, etc.. some old photos to give you some history of the cave. When we arrived, we waited about 20 minutes for the next tour. I brought a sweatshirt as the temperature is a bit cooler inside the cave (~50°F), or you can buy one inside the shop. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. The entire tour lasts about 1 hour. You explore with the guide, and pause every few feet to understand the rock formations, ponds, gems and other interesting facts. He also turned on & off lights at various parts. Some areas were very steep, so wear sneakers or shoes with good traction. Also, some areas had low ceilings that you had to crouch down and some were spacious. I loved this adventure! Got some pretty cool photos too..
Staff was very friendly and courteous. Well kept and clean. Caverns were interesting an awesome experience and beautiful formations. Our tour guide Lily was very informative and lively. There were a few steep areas to walk through so if you have limitations in walking or climbing stairs I do not recommend the tour.
