  • I FINALLY did both Cave Tours. The Cathedral Cave tour was given by the most awesome guide EVER - Natalie rocked. She had tons of info to make the tour more enjoyable. She was fantastic in every single way. The Cathedral Cave is flash light only and that makes it even more cool. The Regular Cave tour was given by Jessie and she too was fantastic. She was funny and lead a large group of us through the cave. She did a terrific job of making the tour memorable. Oh and we SAW A BAT - how cool. Like a live bat which is pretty rare I hear. Then on the second tour we saw Natalie again as she was attempting to rescue a downed First Aid Kit... No man, woman, or First Aid kits left behind in this cave. The whole crew here is fantastic and it is money very well spent to come explore this cave. Bring the family, bring your camper, and you won't be dissapointed thank you all so very much. Love you guys.
  • Emma lead our tour and she was fantastic. I've been here a few times and I always enjoy it. This cave is perfect for a hot summer day. You'll need a light jacket. Great place to take photos. Nice park about 90 minutes from Missouri.
