The Georgia Girl Guides charge $10 an hour for cave tours plus $10 for equipment. That means a one-hour tour is $20 and a four-hour tour is $50. The Girls – AKA G3 – will provide helmets, kneepads and lights for cave trips but say guests should bring a change of clothing for après-cave comfort.
Children participating in cave tours should be at least 6, but there is no upward age limit and the Girls say they like challenging older girls – the 50-plus variety – to challenge themselves. “We all go together and we take our time,” they say.
G3 also conducts hiking trips for similar fees and may also be booked for birthday parties or other special occasions.
You may contact the Girls by phone at (706) 913-7170, via their website, www.georgiagirlguides.com, or by emailing Christine Rose at email@example.com or Amy Ward at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What’s with the Pebbles and Tiny thing? The Girls explain that, like Appalachian Trail hikers, they took on noms de trail for their outdoor adventuring. Ms. Rose as a naturalist is seriously into geology so she’s called Pebbles.. “And Amy, well, she’s tiny,” says Ms. Rose. “She can squeeze into the small holes in a cave and go exploring and then tell us if we need to follow.”
