The Sonora caverns are breathtaking in their beauty. We saw the signs and decided to go--wow--it was so worth the time and then some! The kids could not stop talking about it--and even the wife and I loved it. The formations and colors are wonderful. The guides really made the trip worth it, though. They were absolutely fantastic!

Great field trip 155 ft underground. I visited the caverns with my family during the 4th of July weekend and it was lots of fun. Great formations and we learned a lot from our guide.

The Sonora Caverns are a awesome place to see a great cavern in the middle of the hills of Texas. Great place to stop and take a break or to start the day. The basic tours are 1 hour 45 minutes and cost approx $15-20 and worth every penny. You head down 155 feet under ground and well maintained trails.... More

Expect an underground workout in natural beauty. Its not TOO bad, I'm outta shape and i survived with minimal complaints. Tight squeezes in a few turns so if you are claustrophobic, beware. I recommend that everyone wear solid rubber bottom or gym shoes.

The Sonora Caverns are amazing and almost 3 kilometers long that will make you feel that you're in an other world. The tour lasted almost 2 hours in a warm et very humid atmosphere, but we really enjoyed and recommend it ! Watch out the frogs at the end! 20$ / person

Well its kinda hard to tell you what there is to see here, its a beautiful cave with unbelievable things to see, it's amazing . It is a nice little walk and you wont be disappointed, also a nice retreat from the heat during the summer.

Caverns of Sonora is a privately operated cave west of San Antonio. The speleothems on display are simply amazing - the whole cave is one giant formation. The walk is somewhat strenuous and requires a certain flexibility, but the pace set by the guide and the wonder of what you are seeing keeps you fully engaged. The butterfly helictites here... More

We had a wonderful time exploring the caverns of Sonora with our guide Melissa! She was very informative and a pleasure to be around. I love the small tours they give, so everyone has a chance to hear about and see the attractions of this cavern. The price is right as well. Gift shop was great, and fudge was terrific!... More

AWESOME. The fee is $20 per person. Tour is 1 hour 45 min. long. This is our 2nd time here ( this time with 2 grandkids ). Cavern is 98% still active. Beautiful Cavern. They take small groups and are able to take it slow and answer questions along the way. Some steps but a slow enough paste. We liked... More
