Which Mammoth Cave Tour???

Jump to last reply

Can you give me any thoughts on the tours at Mammoth Cave?

I've read that the frozen niagara area is the most interesting in the cave. We do not need a tour longer than 2 hours.

I'm currently looking at 2:
1. Frozen Niagara Tour (formerly Travertine Tour) 1.25 hours limited availablity only 26 tkts left. Res. says "Easiest tour offered"
2. New Entrance Tour (formerly Frozen Niagara Tour) 2 hours. Larger tour (over 100 tickets) 280 steps... more strenuous. Also sees New Entrance, Roosevelt's Dome, Silo Pit, Grand Central Station, Big Break, Fairy Ceiling, Flat Ceiling, Frozen Niagara flowstone formation, Frozen Niagara Tour Route

I'd like my kids to feel like they've been to Mammoth Cave... would tour number 1 give that?
But how is it with 100 people? would the more private tour 2 be better? is 2 hours and 280 steps too miserable?

With the tour directly to frozen niagara... do you get to see it better? even though shorter in total time... is it longer time in the best area of the cave? (does new entrance tour rush through this area?)

Thanks for sharing your opinion!!!
