Maybe there are grander caverns (Carlsbad comes to mind) but Carlsbad is quite a drive from Virginia. Just go and have fun and try not to rate whether Mother Nature was having a good, or bad day when she created this wonder.

This is definitely worth your time and money to stop and take a tour of this. It is across from the Natural Bridge and will amaze you. Perfect for couples or families. We really enjoyed this place. Never having been to something like this before, it was breath-taking and awesome to view all the different crystals and minerals. The tour... More

AMAZING! You have to see this place. The caverns are not as big as some in the area, but fascinating and very different than the others. There is a lot to see, some science to learn, some history to see, some fun to be had. Our tour guide was cute as a button and really knew his stuff! He made... More

This is a small cavern. But it doesn't matter. If this is your first caven it will inpressvive. If you have been to many caverns this could be boring. I think features like this depend on the guide. We had a young fun guide. Tip your guide on your way out. I loved this cavern though not as spectacular as... More

Natural Bridge Caverns is located in Natural Bridge, Virginia. Virginia has the largest concentration of caverns in the US. This cavern has many interesting geological features. The tour takes about an hour. There are several steps you have to climb to get to the lower levels. Our guide, Katy, was wonderful. She kept everyone's safety in mind and pointed out... More

If you have mobility issues you may want to think about this. It is a lot of walking especially to the end. Great places for photos and we went in Oct so the leaf change is a gift from above. Good food and a scoop of ice cream made the day. About $60 for 2 adults 1 child. 6 and... More

We bought tickets to visit the caverns as part of a package for Natural Bridge. Both were a bit of a letdown given the price ($26 per adult). The caverns were neat, but the group was large and full of rude people who couldn’t follow the simple instruction of leaving the formations alone. There are about five or six rooms... More

These were less than stellar caverns, and not worth the combo tickets from the Natural Bridge. We didn't find the guide to be terribly knowledgeable. We were rather disappointed with the cavern experience and felt it was a waste of time and money. If you choose to do it, bring a sweater/jacket and wear shoes with good tread.
