We have been to caverns before but never to any that compare to these. We had to wait in line for about an hour with a 6 year old and 16 month old which was not fun but once we got moving the kids enjoyed it. It is a pretty long tour/walk but is entertaining/interesting the whole way through. I... More

We took a tour of the impressive caverns over Labor Day weekend with our 3 boys and infant baby girl .... the lines were manageable and they were able to get us setup in no time. The tour guide was able to engage our children and keep them interested for the entire hour , with animated stories and fun facts.... More

This is a hidden piece of earth that just makes you wonder and wax mystical about the beauty and the mystery in the universe. Who would guess that there is an intricate, gorgeous cavern below a random hillside in VA? And who knows how many others there are! We visited Luray Caverns on an extremely hot and muggy day.... and... More

My family visited the caverns and we were blown away! Every step you take is a new beautiful view. Our tour guide Cory was great; he was very excited about the caverns and I enjoys his jokes. I found it to be a bit expensive but the price does include 2 other museums. There are other items you can 'add-on'... More

Wife and I visited the caverns on the way back from Williamsburg. I had gone as a young boy but remembered little. Caverns are really spectacular and the tour was well worth it if anyone is ever in the area. There are several museums attached to the attraction, and the vintage car museum is well worth it and is included... More

The caverns themselves are extremely beautiful, and the plentiful amount of formations (and enormous ones at that) should not be overlooked. However, the tour guide was not enthusiastic or incredibly outgoing. It took away from the hospitality that I was anticipating. The clerks in the gift shop and ticket booth seemed bored and annoyed, evident by their smirks. The size... More

I decided to visit here after not being here for a looooong time. The place is still amazing. We had a fun tour guide. Her name is Shannon. The crowd was small so we saw more of the cavern.
