Come on down (way down) at the largest underground attraction in Texas! Daily guided tours allow guests to explore large underground chambers and see huge formations. The largest room is bigger than a football field. Above ground, discover rocks, minerals, and rough-cut gems at the Natural Bridge Mining Company Sluice. The Canopy Challenge will test your agility on over 40 different obstacles while you are on our 4 story, 60 foot high Adventure Course. Then you can fly across the scenic Texas Hill Country on our zip-lines! (Canopy Challenge is open daily but weather dependent.)

Probably visited here about 3 times or so. Also brought my 4 year old at one time. Make sure you wear rubber shoes, it can get wet and slippery. Simply amazing everytime!

We stopped here on our drive from San Antonio to Austin. We took one tour and it was just enough. A lot of walking but the views were amazing. They take your picture in the caverns and you can buy aftwrwards. I think it was $20. They had a zip line that look fun, but I've seen and done better... More

We used our tickets from Natural Bridge to get a discount on tickets. The tour was a little boring, but we did see some salamanders which is why I marked it as a 3 instead of a 2.

Nice tour of the caverns. Wear decent walking shoes. Stay close to the guide if you want to hear what he/she is saying. I felt there were too many people in the group for one guide. If you are really not supposed to touch the formations, there is no one to really watch the group. I thought it rather tacky... More

If you're reading this before Memorial Day 2015...the cave is getting filled with rain inside the cave... So you can't see it all because it's filling up in certain places. Ita rare ococcasion sso if you go... Don't get disappointed because as of May 20, 2015...it's been reported that the cavern is open but limited to viewing 100% of the... More

We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your Discovery Aquifer Tour. You are correct that is a unique opportunity to the Caverns under very special conditions. When running the Aquifer Tours you actually get to see a different section of the Cavern that is not normally open to the public. It is used to bypass the room filled... More

There are various types of tour on offer. We took the Discovery Tour which lasted about an hour and ten minutes and you walk down to the lowest point of 211 feet, with a pre-walk talk about when the caves were discovered, It is hot and humid once inside, but don't let that put you off, the stalactites and stalagmites...

This guided tour will show you the most amazing cave you will ever see. Its huge inside and spectacular. This tour is slow paced for young and old. From delicate formation to massive columns this cave has it all. The grounds provide many other fun attractions as well for the whole family. A great way to spend the day. Soak... More

Natural Bridge Caverns is a great way to spend an afternoon. We took the Discovery Tour and it was very interesting. Be aware that there are stairs and some steep and narrow passageways. We enjoyed hearing about the different formations inside the cavern. Our tour group was small which was nice and our tour guide, Jack, did a good job.... More
