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

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
