We were a group of 2 adults and 2 children. There is a long staircase to get to the main floor which you will need to carry a stroller down. I believe they said it is not a wheelchair accessible area, but you may want to check on that prior to going. The floors are wet in some areas, so... More

Although the cave did not hold a huge display of formations, the ones that it had were very pretty. And the one, which I can't remember the name of, was absolutely gorgeous.

We go here several times each summer to ride the train and visit the caverns. Staff is always helpful and we enjoy the tour. It is a smaller cavern than what is in Luray, but we'll worth the stop.

This was one of the highlights of our visit to Virginia. It's a truly active cave and the guides running it are knowledgeable and funny. It's a must-see if you're in the area.

A smaller cavern than Luray. Not as much walking or as many steps as Luray but there are some really unique formations there. We would recommend a look see. Well worth the admission. Our tour guide was a very knowledgeable young man. Tall people need to be careful in a few places but not too bad over all. Would do... More

We took our grandson here for a long weekend visit from New Hampshire. We all loved the tour and my wife loved the fact that we were allowed to take photos (At caverns in Italy in August, we could only take photos in the main cavern, not along the tour). Amazing views and interesting facts,

This is a must see along Sky line drive. We have seen a few caverns but this seemed different some how. It was sought out to be found. The history behind it and the Guide that describes and explains everything, is simply amazing. Doesn't take too long to see and enjoy. It is well worth the money and more.

There are larger caves in the Shenandoah, but it is hard to beat the experience at Skyline Caverns. The guides are very knowledgeable and tour groups are smaller giving visitors the opportunity to interact with and ask questions of the guides. It is also one of the few caverns that have anthodites which are beautiful, flower like formations growing from... More

I thought this was a fun and interesting tour. We had Mike as a tour guide and he did an excellent job. I've been to some of the other caverns in the area and the guides seemed like they were just going through the motions, but Mike really seemed to enjoy giving the tour and genuinely seemed interested in teaching...
