We spent a cold rainy afternoon exploring natural bridge caverns. We went on the discovery tour and really enjoyed it. You will be amazed by the stunning sites you see so have your camera ready. Wear comfortable water resistant shoes as the ground will be wet and there are puddles in some areas. Packing an extra pair of socks isn't... More

Even if you're not a huge fan of nature or the outdoors (as I am), you'll like this place. It's very easy to reach from San Antonio, not far at all, and the caverns are really worth a visit. I particularly enjoyed the water inside the caverns, which was there because of the recent rain. The formations inside the cavern... More

I hesitated before going, because I was afraid there would be bats, which I'm not a fan of. If anyone else is wondering about the same thing - there aren't any. There used to, but not anymore. I'm so glad I braved up and visited these caverns. They really are something to see once in your life. We took the... More

I visited Natural Bridge Caverns with a cousin who had lived in the vicinity for over forty years. We were both so glad we took the Discovery Tour and couldn't believe it had taken us to long to do so. The formations are really beautiful. The photos on the website do not do them justice. Some parts of the trail... More

I love visiting caverns and this is a great one. It has interesting history and a lot of great stalactites and stalagmites. We've done both the tour guided and self guided tours, and can't really say which we prefer. The last visit we had a great tour guide. As others have said, the caverns can be cool, so bring a...

Worth every penny! An absolutely stunning vista around every bend. You won't be disappointed. Bring your camera. Wear rubber sole shoes.

Great place to visit with or without the kids. One cavern is self-guided with employees along the way to answer questions for you. We went on the guided tour in the other cavern which are small groups of about 15-20. Bring your walking shoes for either cavern. Be prepared to walk a lot of stairs on the guided tour. It... More

We sure enjoyed the caverns. We chose to do the Journey to Bethlehem. Really, it was just a tour of the caves and a video at the end. It was still nice to hear the story of Christ, and enjoy the warm caves. Our tour guide was a nice enough guy, but he was very monotone and sure didn't seem... More

I love exploring the caves throughout Texas and this is one of the best. Make sure you bring a jacket and are up for walking. The stalagmite and stalagtites they have are better than most caves in the area. If you have kids take them over to the wildlife refuge after!
