If you paid for admission to natural bridge, then this excursion is worth the minimum upcharge to explore. It is not however a mineral/Gem Cave. I was expecting a little more than what there was due to having explored the caverns in the southwest US. However, this is very well maintained, many safety precautions, and the guides are excellent.

Definitely get the combo ticket for Natural Bridge if you can. Beautiful Caverns, great guide, nice tour. About 45 min tour and very educational video for kids beforehand. Loved it and there are picnic tables outside if you want to eat your lunch like we did.

The girl doing the tour was very knowledgeable and personable. It was a little hard to see the things they were pointing out in the cave. All in all thou, a fun side thing to do and nice and cool on a hot summer day :)

I anticipated a uber-touristy experience like Luray. This was so much better. While not as outwardly impressive as Luray, the experience was way more rewarding. It was more engaging and harder to navigate--though not really hard at all. The guide was a wealth of information and clearly loved what he was doing. There are no organs or golf courses or... More

Great atteaction. Only cost the wife and I a little over $8 with a few discounts for staying at the Natural Bridge Hotel and purchasing a Natural Bridge ticket earlier in the day ($32). Guide was informative and went at a perfect pace. Doesn't take very long to see, approx. 1 hr (?).

Small nice Cavern that didn't overcharge you to visit. We found this cavern to be nice but not has pretty as others we have been into. We were lucky to be in a small group so we were able to move along without lots of questions.

Great experience. We traveled with my 2 kids (ages 5 and 7) and both sets of grandparents. One of the descents was a bit too much for one set of grandparents and they were easily able to sit on a bench and wait for the group. My kids were fascinated by our guide who showed them little bugs, and other... More

Our guide (India) made this experience outstanding. She was so passionate and so knowledgeable - it was her mission to make sure we understood the geology of the cave, and she clearly loves her job. (And hey, she gave a great restaurant recommendation too!) The cave itself is pretty neat - wish there'd been more water in it when we... More

Such a great cavern tour. Our guide was fantastic and the tour lasted about an hour. It gets chilly down there so you might want to bring a jacket or sweatshirt.
