Extremely price ($20 per person) for a 2 hour guided tour. It was beautiful in the caverns, there's no denying that, but the tour guide was an extremely bored 20-something who didn't really care about the tour or caverns and didn't have too much information to share. The gift shop was nice and the scenery above the caverns was pretty,... More

Make sure to ask the tour guide the difference. Have been wanting to travel out to Sonora for years and finally made the trek out from San Antonio. It is really beautiful. The cost is a little more than expected -$20 a person but we are glad that we did it. I agree with others, make sure you call before... More

The Caverns of Sonora is absolutely beautiful! Our guide was a young man, I believe he said he was 20; he was very knowledgeable for such a young age. The guided tour took about an hour and a half, and that was going at a pretty good pace. We did stop a few times and take in the beauty of... More

This was a very unique location to tour. The tour guide, Kyle, was super informative and a little funny. He stayed on topic and he was flexible with the experience based on how our group was behaving. It is for sure worth the stop in Sonora.

If you find yourself trekking across Texas from San Antone toward El Paso, & find yourself tired of 'are we there yet?' ..... you owe it to yourself to take a delightful break to see the Caverns of Sonora! It's about 5 miles from the highway, has plenty of shade, with campgrounds available, too! Wear comfortable shoes & lite clothing.... More

We made our first visit to the caverns for the guided tour, and we were impressed with the entire experience. A few things to know in advance: 1. The cave is a very consistent 71 degrees throughout. 2. The humidity inside the cave is a very consistent 98%. Be prepared before beginning your tour by hydrating well, make a potty... More

I arrived at 2:40 on a Saturday afternoon and was told there would be no more tours that day. The camp grounds looked nice, the lady was pleasant, but I was really disappointed. Be sure to call first.

This cave is absolutely wonderful and should not be missed. There are all kinds of formations and it goes on and on. We must have walked two miles but it was worth it. The cave has been explored for about 8 miles and much has not been explored yet. There is a crystal clear pond in the cave and some... More

We were visiting several Texas locations in our motorhome. We arrived at the Caverns early enough in the day to tour the cave complex that afternoon after getting set up in our campsite. We used one of the pull-thru sites that had 20/30/50 amp power and water available. Not much shade available for the motorhome but we were able to... More
