These caverns are just over an hour from the Washington DC suburbs, so an easy trip for most down I-66. The tours are about 1/2 as costly as the more well-known caverns in the area (Luray Caverns, etc.) and the tour is just as much fun. Staff was very friendly and our tour guide seemed very knowledgable and answered many... More

We managed to get a private tour during a slow time, it was really neat. Compared to a few other caverns I've been in the area, this tour was a great length (1 hour) and I felt like we got our money's worth. The anthodites are amazing, such a treat! I would definitely suggest this tour, and don't forget to... More

The caverns were beautiful and our guide, Jen, did a fantastic job. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and got some great pictures.

Great 1+ mile (but less than 2mi) walking tour of the underground caverns. Our tour guide, Jeff, was excellent. Friendly, charming and knowledgable. You could tell he was happy to be there and happy to teach us about this beautiful and unique place. The walk through isn't strenuous and the tour isn't rushed. You can bring a water bottle if...

The caverns are open to guided tours in small numbers and last about an hour. The tour is around 1 mile and goes down about 700 feet. The temperature is constant year-round, mid-fifties. The caverns are smaller than Luray, and much less commercialized, and all the better for that. The formations are not spectacular, but the caverns themselves are very... More

I have been in hundreds of caverns and each is different. Skyline has a room with ceiling crystal formations not found anywhere in the area. Worth the visit.

We visited Luray Caverns and then Skyline Caverns. The two are completely different and a great back to back trip to see the differences. This cavern tour was through rocks that are closer and there are less big rooms and none are as huge as Luray. There are lots of places where everyone needs to duck their heads! There are... More

As with other Caverns, Skyline has the same tired old gift shop offering the same old gifts as the other caverns in the area. In fact, you might not be able to tell which cavern you are visiting if you are blindfolded, and transported sight unseen to the middle of the gift shop. Below ground, Skyline is a bit different...

We took the tour and really enjoyed seeing what God has designed. Our tour guide Liam made the tour interesting and fun. It is so nice to take a tour with someone that knows what they are talking about. It was just my husband and I in our tour group so we were able to ask all kinds of questions... More
