If I had it to do over again, I would choose to be a Geologist. I recommend you see the movie at the Visitor's Center either before or after you tour the caves. The movie is well done. The caves are phenomenal and the accompanying historical/geological information is fascinating. We had a lovely dinner in Baker at the Lectrolux Cafe... More

Wow.........Please take the extra time to get off the beaten path and go see Lehman Caves! You won't regret seeing this amazing creation. And the history behind it all is awesome. My hubby and I took the $10.00, 90 minute "Grand Palace Tour", Ranger Katie was our guide. We wore shorts with a very light jacket, the caves stay at... More

What an experience! 60 or 90 minute tour. Indescribable wonder of nature. If you're claustrophobic or otherwise unable to negotiate tight spaces, think twice. I walk with a cane, and if I'd known what I was getting into, I might have thought twice. I'm glad I went! Since 1974 the caves have been much easier to negotiate. I have great... More

My husband and I took the 60 minute tour with Guide Diane. She was wonderful and very knowledgeable. Every review talks about the gorgeous cave, they are all correct. This tour is fit for most people no matter your size, height, weight or activity level. There are places you need to tuck and shouldn't be a problem for most people.... More

Lehman caves were awesome and a great value, $10 for the 90 minute tour. It's a little chilly so a light jacket will be a good call. Ranger Debbie was great... informative and entertaining.

This was our first trip to Great Basin NP and Lehman Caves was what I was looking forward to the most. Sometimes when I do this, a place falls short of my expectations. Lehman Caves exceeded mine. The cost of the 90 min Grand Palace Tour was only $10 per adult. There is a discount for seniors and Golden Pass... More

If you're visiting Great Basin National Park don't miss out on the cave tour. This 90 minute walking tour was amazing. The natural beauty of this cave has been preserved over the past 100 years and is well worth the 10 dollar admission fee. It gets a little chilly inside the cave so dress accordingly.

We took the Grand Tour, which was 90 minutes long, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The tour starts in a somewhat narrow hallway but most of it is in underground cave 'rooms' that open up, some of which are quite large, so even people who feel somewhat claustrophobic wouldn't feel too closed-in. The caves are lighted, although during our tour we... More

You are taken underground to explore the caves. Never had an experience like this before, it is a must see if you are in the area, it is a rare experience for all.

We visted the caves with a 6 yr old and 4 yr old so were only able to go on the short tour, which turned out okay because the 4 yr old was afraid then had to be escorted out. The tour was interesting but short, the story of the cave was probably more interesting than the rock formations. At... More
