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.

This is our second visit to Natural Bridge in Virginia; and we enjoyed it again. Beautiful scenery to take photos esp. in October with fall foliage. Dogs on a leash are welcomed on the nature walk; but not allowed in the Building where you purchase tickets though. Walk to Lace Falls is an easy walk; and you can rest along... More

These caverns were very interesting. When you come to a stop, be sure to look up. There are so many interesting things to see over your head--big crevices that are many stories high. It is easy to enter these caverns. We saw several brown bats that had entered to begin the hibernation process. Our guide pointed them out. They are... More

Our guide "Ian" was a bit of a smarty. I felt that between what was advertised and shown in pictures and what we actually saw was a let down.

This is a beautiful cavern. Be prepared for some walking and stair climbing but worth it. Tour guide Ian was very informative. My husband and I enjoyed this.

This was an average cave, but the excellent guide made the trip there worthwhile. Wear tennis shoes as some of the floors and steps are wet and slippery.
