We called ahead, while driving cross country, regarding camping and spoke to a lovely young lady who gave us great information. Including directions "the old fashion way" as she stated (loved it!), the closest place to grab food on our way in, where to pay after hours, etc. When we arrived it was hard to decipher between sites as they...

We have visited more than a few limestone caverns throughout the US (Carlsbad, Mammoth Cave, Luray and Endless Caverns in VA, Meramec and Onondaga in MO, Natural Bridge and Inner Space Caverns in TX). The Caverns of Sonora would have to rank near the top of those in both the quantity and quality of the amazing formations. For a relatively... More

I've always wanted to go to Sonora Caverns and as this was the last day of my daughter's spring break I took the opportunity... I checked trip advisor before we went and was a little hesitant based on the reviews of the staff attitudes and long waits... Let me just say that our experience was perfection! The place was not...

My husband and I tour several caverns when we are on vacation and this one was a great. It is nice they limit their tour size, made it easier for moving around, seeing and being able to near. At first the cavern was not that spectacular but the farther you got in the better it got. We camped their over... More

We really enjoyed the Sonora Caverns! Other reviews that we had read were true in saying it is very warm & humid inside the cave. Mid 80's with 98% humidity. Dress appropriately! Also tennis shoes would be a good choice due to the slick cave floors and stairs/inclines. Formations were beautiful especially the further into the cave you get. Our... More

Dee was helpful to my mother who is 75. She slowed the tour down so mom could go at her own pace. Everyone on the tour was happy to help us by going slow enough she could keep up.

We were driving from Austin to Carlsbad and saw the sign along the highway and thought we'd check it out. We're glad we did. It's a about a 90-minute tour and so many different things to see. Very well done. A little pricey we thought - $70 for 2 adults, a teen, and a 10-year-old - but it was 90-minutes... More

The cavern itself was amazing. Unfortunately our guide was not very good. We were at the front of the line, he would shine the flashlight, briefly describe what we were looking at then he turned off the lights so the people behind us had no clue what he was pointing at. He walked fast and most of the questions I... More

The Caverns of Sonora are another fine example of God's marvelous creation--unusual, beautiful and grand. The $20/per person entry fee is well worth it to witness such a treasure as is the beauty of this place. The person who led us through the caves was very knowledgeable, protective and friendly. Even though we were deeply below the surface of the... More
