Violet City Lantern Tour Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is a favorite tour. It combines cave history, from early visitors to early tourists and guides, with traveling by the light of a handheld lantern just like the tours of old. At first it travels through the most historically toured section of Mammoth Cave; it then continues into a part of the cave that is less used in this time.
Here you can visit the largest room in the cave, Chief City, and see Mummy Ledge, where celebrated “Lost John”—an aboriginal cave visitor—was found. The end of the tour passes through Kamper Hall and the tour’s namesake, Violet City, which has eye-catching flowstone formations."
