Explore the limestone caves at Howe Caverns. The brick walkways, handrails, and elevators make the journey easy. The traditional tour begins at the elevators and ends with a boat ride on the Lake of Venus, an underground body of water. Consider booking an adventure tour to see the undeveloped portion of the cave. You'll be provided with a suit to protect you from the moisture. After the tour, head to the Cave House Museum of Mining & Geology, which is inside a former hotel next door. Put Howe Caverns and other Howes Cave attractions into our Howes Cave trip itinerary planning site, and watch your holiday take shape.

It was a lot of fun. The tour guide really knew her stuff and you could tell she had fun doing her job.I hope staffing there gets better for the adventure tours though because I really wanted to do...

We enjoyed the whole experience thoroughly. Extra special was the crew who without exception made everything so pleasant.

Really fun family experience. Well trained staff. Interesting geologic tour. One suggestion is to install mics/speakers at the various stopping points so the entire group can hear. This is in no way a slight to the staff. Our tour guides were speaking loudly but the public, unfortunately would rather chat and not listen, thus making it impossible for much of the group to hear. Other than that it's a really fun experience.
Chandler was our tour guide. He was educational and comical. He didn't fall out of the boat while he directed us through the waters. He gladly answered all our questions! Beautiful tour to highlight God's creations! We reserved the 10am tour on a Sunday which worked out wonderful because our group only had 18 people. This is worth the money!
