We've been to the caverns twice, first with our children and now with grandchildren and it was great. We took the basic tour both times; had a terrific guide both times; and, found the length of the tour just about right. It was an easy walk; the guide was very good; she answered all our questions and demonstrated concern for... More

We took the basic tour and it was fantastic. We had a terrific guide who walked us through an easy pace. She was very informative and a lot of fun. The basic tour was mostly an easy walk with a few slippery spots. It was cool inside but I didn't need the sweater that I brought. I wanted to take... More

Small but interesting cavern. Privately owned and operated with guided tours as the only point of access. There is a one-hour family friendly walking tour and two more intense tours for ages 8+ on the upper cavern and 12+ on the lower section. The general walking tour descends 80 feet, and is a cool 50 degrees throughout. Adult admission is... More

I took my family of five on the tour and it lasted a little under an hour. There is a lot of gradient to the descent and the climb so be prepared to work a little bit. One of my children found it a little challenging. The tour was nice and the cavern is pretty cool. Be prepared to get... More

When we booked the trip, my husband and I originally planned on doing the upper cave tour as we had never been caving before. When we got there, they recommended we do the lower tour, which takes you 45 stories underground. I am so glad we did the lower! It was so much fun. Our guide, Noah, was great. He... More

My husband and I arrived late for the lower tour and ended up taking the upper tour. We had a really good time our tour guide answered all our questions was very knowledgeable and had us find our way out which was really neat. I would definitely recommend. The upper tour is different then the family guide tour. Upper and... More

I took my scout troop here and overall they had a good time. The merit badges are a little boring, the class part. But that's not uncommon. The reason I gave this a two and not higher is that one of our patrols of ten boys spent three hours and only got to rappel twice. Not good for $35. They... More

We took a Boy Scout troop from DC on the 3.5 hour trek to the caverns and was not disappointed. Our group was split into three teams: lower, upper and rappelling. Both the lower and upper caverns are approx. 3 hour tours into the heart of the caverns, with the lower tour going nearly 400 ft below ground. Both the... More

We decided to take a short trip from Pittsburgh - to Laurel caverns about an hour and 23 minutes from the city and we were not disappointed. These natural caves that were formed over 300 million years ago was a sight to see. There is a general tour every 20 minutes and we were lucky as it was just two... More
