We visited Skyline and then traveled down to Luray for a cavern filled day. I really recommend seeing both. Our guide at Skyline was informative and thorough. I really found that I learned a lot about cavern formation, the history of the discovery, and some really neat scientific facts. The caverns are well preserved and cared for. An added bonus... More

This was our third cavern in three days, but our family really liked it. The aboveground structure is a little shabby and could use some TLC, but the caverns are awesome. Our guide was knowledgeable and quite funny. Highly recommended.

This was a nice, long tour and the tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to hear. The caverns are interesting. Take time to look around the gift shop, it's a trip!

Our tour guide , Ed, was great. He made corny jokes while he explained every detail of the caverns. The caverns are beautiful and full of awe at every turn. Very cool when the lights are turned off and you stand still in the quiet and coolness. Remember to wear a jacket or sweatshirt, as the temperature is in the... More

Well priced tour of the caverns, as thrilling to the young ones today as it was 40 years ago. The caverns are well worth the visit and price of admission. Sights are well lit and a camera is a must. Bring a jacket or sweater--the temperature inside is in the 50s.

After reading the reviews, I was unsure whether to take my niece and nephew to these caverns. I was at Luray Caverns twice and didn't want to go back again but wanted a great day adventure close to I66 and I81. We decided to try it out and was really glad that we did.

The feature of this cavern is the Anthodites, and they live up to their billing. Overall thisis a fine cavern system and the guide was knowledgeable, friendly and took his time to show you around. Our main aim was the cavern but there are other things to keep the children amused at the site. You don't get to see Anthodites... More

A great tour for the teenagers and older crowd. Our kids (ranging from 1 thru 7) got bored after about 30 min. The tour was about an hour. Warning: at the end of the tour the tour guide will invite the kids to crawl through some cool tunnels in the cavern -- who will say no to that??? -- but... More

Nice caverns! Unique stalactites/mites as well as other great geological formations. It is about 1.5 miles long, but you would never know it, as there are frequent stops. Takes a little over an hour for the tour. There are stairs in the facility, as one would guess. I would recommend taking a light jacket, bottle of water and small flashlight.... More
