Wonderful caverns experience with an excellent tour guide. The young lady provided so much history and made our tour very enjoyable. We toured Skyline Caverns prior to Luray. While Skyline Caverns is not of the grandiosity of Luray Caverns, it was a more personalized experience with only 6 people on our tour. At Luray Caverns, we were among thousands who... More

There's a few cavern attractions in the valley area, tried this one first. Nice small tour group - maybe 20 people - and the guide (Holly) was pretty good and actually appeared to enjoy her work. There are no huge, as in make your drop, rooms or structures at this cavern attraction. What made it enjoyable was the lack of... More

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.

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.
