I have taken tours of caverns at other locations in the past, and was expecting a similar experience. The caverns were tremendous with impressive formations. I took the Discovery Tour, which is over an hour of walking in the caves. One word of advice- dress appropriately, it is hot and humid! Our guide told us that its a constant 70... More

1st- the teenagers at the desk where you purchase tickets are rude and useless.. may as well replace them with a ticket vending machine. They automatically charged us for the discovery tour which is fine but we had no idea there were different tour types until we read in our pamphlet while waiting. Next- sign says no food or drink...

We did the Discovery Tour of the caves at Natural Bridges Caverns after my wife spotted their brochure in our hotel. I'm not one to actually enjoy the humidity and going a couple of hundred feet underground. I'll have to admit I found the 90+ minute tour impressive. The tour guide knew his geology and did a good job of... More

Great place to spend the day with family. Very informative and a great place for pictures. Don't forget about the rope course and gold mining for gems. Kids had a blast

We did the Discovery Tour of the caves at Natural Bridges Caverns and found the 75 minute tour impressive. The tour guide did a good job of explaining the geology of the formation of the caves and the formations inside the caves were beautiful and easy to see. The depth, height, and beauty of the "rooms" you see on this... More

Traveling from San Antonio to Fredericksburg (or vice versa)? Take time to visit this natural wonder. It may not have the scale of the mammoth caves in KY but has all the features and you can see it all in a matter of 90 minutes or less. The trail is easily navigable even if a bit damp. Wear comfortable wet... More

Our kids loved walking through the caverns, I on the other hand loved all the beauty it had to offer but with bad knees almost died trying to walk out of the caverns. To know someone crawled through that, no pathway is beyond incredible to imagine and I know my kids look forward to going back and doing the more... More

This is something to behold. The tour of the underground caverns is awe-inspiring. The fact that you are looking at formations that have been around for millions of years is both breathtaking and humbling. It's a great family and educational experience.
