The 90 minute tour is only $10 and is very informative. We went in January so there was only 10 of us on the tour together. The caves are cool. Bring a light jacket. Not for big people. You do have to duck down a few times and go sideways down a narrow passage.

We went way out of our way on a trip to Colorado last fall, just to go to this national park and take the cave tour (we love caves). And it was so much more than we expected! The scenery here in Northern Nevada is spectacular, the wide flat valleys and one range of hills after another. We were here... More

Really enjoyed doing this. Ended up taking the shorter tour, and didn't leave disappointed at all. Tour guide was quite knowledgeable, and very patient in allowing for photography, so be sure to bring your camera. Really would've liked to have taken the longer tour; perhaps when I return the next time!

This National Park is far away from most everything. So if you are willing to invest the time, this cave tour is essential. You can call a few days in advance and make reservations and I HIGHLY recommend that. The phone number is found at www.nps.gov/grba. Otherwise you might not get same day tickets at the time you want.

This is (I think) the smallest national park, but worth the visit. The caves are beautiful, you do have to be on a guided tour. I have done both day and night tours, both are worth the time. Hiking is great around the park, lots of wildlife.

Take the longer tour if you can, the last room was amazing. Bring a flashlight too. You can light up formations as you walk instead of depending on the limited lighting in the caves. It was a lot of fun and a great thing to do on a rainy day.

You have to take a guided tour, for obvious reasons, so check at the visitor's center to see when the next tour is. Interesting formations. Wear a jacket!

Ask for Ranger Dustin--he is funny and knowledgeable. I would do the full 90 minutes as it is over before you know it!

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
