Historic Tour Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"One of Mammoth’s better guided tours, this is a good tour to take if you only have time for one. It offers many cave highlights and travels through passages large and small, giving tourists a good taste of the overall Mammoth experience. Part of the reason for the name Historic Tour is that it follows tour routes that visitors have been tracing for nearly 200 years. This tour is offered year-round.

You’ll begin at the visitor center, heading down to the Historic Entrance to Mammoth Cave. There your group will gather at the saltpeter mine to learn how these operations turned the cave into the destination it is today."
