Diamond Caverns in Park City, Kentucky is part of Diamond Caverns RV Resort & Golf and is located just inside the boundary of Mammoth Cave National Park.  We were staying at the RV resort because of its proximity to the National Park and so it was a no brainer to also take the Diamond Caverns’ tour.  Boy am I glad we did.  Diamond Caverns is our favorite cavern tour to date even beating out Mammoth Cave National Park (see the Mammoth Cave review to understand).

Our tour guide was very entertaining with a good mix of science, history, and a very dry sense of humor.  The tour was about half a mile and took a little over an hour.  The cave also had a couple of tight passes with one being so tight that you had to turn sideways in order to fit through.  Everyone in our group handled it fine, but some people might not enjoy such a tight pass.

Before starting the tour, the guide told us the cave had a total of 350 steps and that it was rated as strenuous.  However, Lora and I didn’t have any trouble and found the tour to be rather easy.  There were plenty of stops that broke up the steps into smaller sections and the pathway was easy and mostly level.
