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!

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.

I've been in some huge beautiful caverns as a child so I was not impressed with Skyline. I thought it was low, narrow & overall tiny compared to previous experience. My 2 Adult Daughters enjoyed themselves and this was their 1st Cave. Pricewise the 3 different Caverns in area were same. I don't know if they would have been better,... More

We had a great time at the Caverns, the only downfall was that we had two little ones (5 & 6) who did get a little tired after walking, you can take strollers but Whoa! there are a ton of stairs but the view is amazing and our tour guide was great.
