The Grand Palace Tour was fabulous! The cave formations are remarkable; the information and history of the caves is very interesting. The temperature is brisk but worth every minute. Lehman Caves may be the best tour I have been when looking at the different formations and variety of colors. This is definitely worth your time and a small amount of... More

The Dave tour is amazing and perfect in difficulty and length for school age children. Very young children may get a little scarred when the tour goes completely dark for a few seconds to simulate the experience of the first explorers, but others then that, the path is well lit and easy to follow. The ranger was very professional, friendly,... More

Totally worth the time and money if you're passing by this area on Hwy 50!! We did the Grand Palace tour at 9am. They offer 2 tours, the lodge room which lasts an hour and the Grand Palace which lasts an hour and a half. I'm really glad we chose to do the longer tour as the two extra areas... More

We first visited Lehman Caves and Great Basin Park in the early 70's. Ever since we have made a point of stopping on trips headed in that direction. The Caves are really nice, and the guides do a wonderful job. There is a nice exhibit in the Visitors Center with good food in the small cafeteria. For camping we love... More

Our family embarked on the guided, 90 minute Grand Tour recently on our first visit to Great Basin; what a visual feast for the eyes! As you walk through this underground wonderland (on a paved trail) you are amazed at the stunning variety of colors and formations that have formed over time and are still forming! The temps in the... More

This was my second time at Lehman Caves. First time, I took the short tour but this time around took the longer Grand Palace tour. It was awesome! Was a first visit for my wife and she loved it! Such unique formations. Breathtaking columns and shields. My beautiful wife took some great pics. The ranger did a great job with... More

We enjoyed our visit to Lehman Caves very much. We had never seen anything like the fantastic limestone formations -- stalactites, stalagmites, shields, draperies, cave popcorn and more. The caves are stunningly beautiful. The only downside is that one is not allowed to touch the formations since this can damage the limestone. Not a problem for most adults, but the... More

The National Park Rangers do an excellent job of explaining both the natural and human history of the cave complex.

Visited Lehman Caves for the first time this past week. Was very impressed with the visitor's center, the rangers, the cave tour and heck, even the food! Ranger had a great sense of humor and kept our group both entertained and well informed. Shield formations were impressive.
