We took the shorter tour. The best part was when they turned out the lights. It is probably just me, but after a while the formations started to look the same. Reserve ahead- this was a weekend after school had started, but every tour was full.

We did the 90 minute cave tour with our kids aged 6 and 8. They absolutely loved it! The ranger was very knowledgeable and friendly. The temperature is pretty cool and it is very humid inside the caves year-round so plan on bringing a light jacket or sweater.

Even though it was past Labor Day the park was still busy and all the 90 minute tours were booked. We took the next available slots on the 60 minute Lodge Room tour. The tour is 0.4 miles long. The tour fee is $8.00 per adult but a Senior Pass gets you in for half price. Each person needs their... More

This is a great cave even though it's not as grand as many others the history and closeness of the formations makes it a must see. The tours sell out quickly so we purchased our tickets ahead of time for the Grand Palace Tour. We saw many people turned away on the day of our tour so we were very... More

the guide was very entertaining (Ranger Steve). We went a little over the 90 minute tour time but it went by so quickly you didn't notice. The cave is beautiful with various formations, including shields. We bought an annual park pass and got one free cave entrance ($10 off). Would definitely go back.

My road trip friend and I stopped here on a trip to and from Denver, and we were lucky enough to book the 1.5 hour tour. Our ranger was very knowledgeable and personable, and the cave was incredible! I would call this a must see for anyone in the area. Take the time to take the longer tour, and you... More

We've been in numerous caves across the US and can say that Lehman Caves are one of the best. If your mobility allows take the Grand Palace Tour you won't be disappointed. Our tour guide Steve was awesome with lots of knowledge and jokes. The $10 charge is a bargain for what you see.

We were not sure what to expect, but the cave tour exceeded our imagination. What a beautiful cave. Thousand of stalagmites and stalactites. Our ranger tour guide was excellent. We arrived at 1:00pm and purchased tickets for the 3:00pm tour. Ate at the cafe then watched a 40 minute movie about the Great Basin area and specifically the cave.

Having been in several caves before you begin to think you have seen it all, not so, every cave has something special to offer and this is no exception. The guide was very knowledgeable and with some rare formations and the history behind the cave the narration was anything but boring, we think he enjoyed the lights going out and... More

There is a fee for the tour of $10 and Senior Pass holders receive a 50% discount. The most interesting thing about this cave were the rare shield formations in addition to the usual stalactites, cave bacon, cave popcorn. The 90 minute tour was very interesting; the guide was entertaining and informative. I found it a bit chilly even though... More
