If you happen to visit Arizona , this tour is a must see. The stalactites and stalagmite formation in there is amazing and you get to see a great variety of delicate and colorful formations as well as the largest column in Arizona. All tours are guided by a trained tour guide and the music that plays at the end of tour is enchanting. The whole tour lasts about an hour to hour and a half and costs less than $20 pp which is peanuts considering the memories you are taking with you. This is a tour of a living cave which means that the formations are still growing. .

PROS: Living Caves, Tour guide, enchanting music
CONS: No photography inside the caves

Nothing sets the romantic mood like a cavern: wet, clammy, dripping and dimly lit with hundreds of bats.

You know a place is good when its kept a secret for 14 years, and then closed for another 11. Two men discovered the caverns in 1974, but the public didn't step inside until Nov. 1999.

There are stalactites that look like dozens of gothic candles dripping from the ceiling and others that look like 1970s curtains, with brown and yellow stripes. If those dont get you going, take a gander at one of the world's longest soda straw stalactites (hollow tube with water dripping down), which is 21.16 feet and still growing.
