Great family experience! Mammoth cave was booked up, so we found this cave tour and it was great. Not very exhausting, especially for seniors or kids. Just a tight squeeze and a few low hangings. Good value and not a long wait time. We had fun panning for minerals.

This was our first cave exploring experience and we will have more. The attraction was well kept with a pleasant staff. The tour is limited to 20 guests which was just right. The tour lasts about an hour and the walking was not to demanding. Diamond Caverns has great history. The guide was well versed and could expand on it when questioned.

A wonderful experience! The steps were a bit steep but the tour was awesome and entertaining! The cave bacon was cool and the shop was plentiful with goods. I bought several specimens and spent nearly 300 there! If you can walk up stairs a bit steeper than those in your home, you'll be fine ;)

A beautiful cavern! There are a lot of steep stairs, so if you have a medical condition be careful. My 9 and 3 year old handled it just fine. The guidance are very friendly and have interesting stories to tell. It takes about an hour to go through.

Our family came to the area to go to Mammoth Caves, Lost River Cave, and Hidden River Cave. After a large rain fall both of the River cave tours closed so that brought us to the Diamond Caverns instead! We were so pleasantly WOWed! This place is a MUST see, absolutely gorgeous! Although Mammoth cave was cool, Diamond Caverns was by far more breath taking and astounding! We were happy that our change of plans lead us here! If you are in the area, take this tour, you will not be disappointed in any way!!
