Kids and I made an impromptu stop here on the way back from Luray Caverns on a quiet April Monday. We wanted to compare the two and were driving by anyway. The site looked very 1950s which was part of the draw in us stopping along with a desire for some ice cream. The gift shop area did not disappoint!... More

Don't let the price scare you away - You walk about a mile underground going down to over 225 feet under the surface. Our Guide James was just outstanding super informative with a corny sense of humor that even made this father of 3 girls laugh and learn.

I thought it would be a tourist trap, but it turned out to be a great surprise. Our tour guide was passionate about exploration, and he made it really fun to learn about caves. We have a fit year old and he was a little freaked out at first but our guide made him feel welcomed and he really enjoyed... More

There are many caves to explore in Virginia, but Skyline Caverns is a cave you should definitely put on your list. It has formations unseen in any other cave in the world.

I went to skyline caverns with a group of 9 people ages ranging from 50 years - 5 years old. We all really enjoyed it. It was reasonably priced (you can print a coupon from the website). Our tour guide was funny and let us tour the caves at our own pace. The tour lasts about 1 hour but there... More

Our family loves caves and caverns so we enjoyed this place very much. Like any cave tour there is lots of walking but the ground is level and easy to walk. there are some really beautiful views throughout the caverns and the entire visit is really delightful if you like caves. There are also a few other things to see... More

My boyfriend and I are geologists visiting caverns over spring break and we were not disappointed! Our tour guide was hilarious and very knowledgeable! The tour was more than a walk, it was a show!

We visited Aug 2013 & loved it. I meant to write this a long time ago ;) The tour was great and they have a little train you can ride for an additional fee. My boys were 2 & 5 at the time and loved it. It is cold in the caverns so bring sweatshirts and have pants for the... More

I've visited several caverns in the Shenandoah Valley. Each have unique things about them. This one had the "Cave Flowers" that you don't see in the others.
