Visited with my daughter and we had a great time. The lobby ticket area could be relocated to a larger area due to issues with standing room but other than that it was fine. The gift area is also very cramped and crowded with an overabundance of stuff. The Rock Shop was very nice and the candy store was very... More

Touring the natural bridge caverns was an excellent experience. Walking thru the caverns seeing the different formations. A 70 minute tour with some steps is involved

Our family really enjoyed our visit. We were surprised that my active duty military spouse was free for the basic tour. The parking lot looked fairly full when we arrived. We were worried we would be herded through the tour. I'm happy to report that we were not. The caves are huge and beautiful. The tour is set up with... More

As nice as any of the major caverns in America - Luray, etc. No need to bring jeans or jackets - it's 70 degrees in there with 99% humidity.

We went on a Thursday. We packed a lunch and found that they had several picnic tables on the property. This was our first time to the caverns. We decided to take the Hidden Passages tour (which the coupons we had did not cover). We bought our tickets but wound up having to wait around an hour before our tour.... More

Really interesting caverns staffed by knowledgeable guides. Can't wait to come back when my children are old enough to do the more intensive cave experience.

I've been to many underground caverns and always enjoy this type of experience. Check this great place out and you'll see a little bit of what goes underneath our feat. Very cool place on a hot summer day.

We went on the discovery tour and it was amazing. The formations inside the cave like 'bacon cave', 'fried egg' and 'kings throne' were breath-taking. Our tour guide was very funny and informative. He kept everyone entertained the whole time with his funny jokes. It was very humid inside the cave and almost most of cave was wet, it does... More

Located in San Antonio on the far norh side Natural Bridge Caverns makes for a easy side trip from San Antonio. The caverens are not huge like Carlsbad or Mammoth but there are some interesting "rooms" and formations. We visited in summer and made the last tour...it was very hot outside so this made for an excellent excursion as the... More

My kids have never seen a cavern so this was a nice family adventure. We enjoyed taking lots of photos along the way and learning how these caverns were made over thousands of years.
