While the caverns are breathtaking and something to marvel at, this is a very commercialized tourist attraction. Get there for the first tour of the day as soon as they open if you want to avoid long lines to get in the facility. We got there at about 8:45 for the 9:00 am tour - no lines or waiting. However,...

The Luray Caverns were amazing! My only complaints would be that the group that we were in was rather rude and talked the entire time making it hard to hear the guide. We were her last tour of the day and it felt rushed at times, but the caverns themselves were so breathtaking and nothing that I had ever experienced... More

I've been to Luray, VA many times, but never went into the caverns. I'm glad we did this time. Quite interesting and they really train their staff well. Our tour guide was named Lexi and she said it was only her second day. She knew the caverns like she was a twenty year pro. We'll done! Made the tour better.

Temperature outside 40 degrees. Inside 50 degrees and humid making it very comfortable. Its amazing inside the caverns and is about a 1.5 miles walk. So much to look at and can spend about 2-3 hours with a million year old history infront of you. Its great for all ages and totally enjoyable. Check out the Maze while you are... More

The caverns are amazing, however entrance fees are extremely expensive - we paid $24 per person - for the short guided walk and compared to similar attractions in other states. As a way of comparison, the entrance fee in Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico is $10 and they are really amazing (5 stars IMHO) Do you want to walk the... More

I wasn't expecting my visit to be so impressive. I'd seen a few caves before. But this was something else. Outstanding! Recommended for solo, couple and family. You will be amazed.

Luray Caverns is amazing and definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. The stalactites and stalagmites are incredible! The tour takes an hour and you are on your feet the whole time. You also have to walk down and back up about 70 steps, so be aware if this is a problem for you. You are walking on... More

We arrived first thing on Monday morning hoping to avoid the crowds. Even though there was no wait to buy our tickets we had to wait until more people arrived and bought their tickets. Our group grew FAST and we had about 50 people heading down with tour guide Tara. She was great but due to the larger size and... More

We came for the caverns. Stayed for the Rope Challenge park, the Garden Maze, the Carriage and Car Museum, Luray Museum, etc etc. Used our Martins grocery card for discount on our tickets. $86 for the day wasn't too shabby. The cavern was super neat. The kids with the 'audio tour' needed wrangled up. It was quite obnoxious to hear... More

We are from NC and are staying at Creekside in Bayse, VA for a spring break week. It was a rainy day so we decided to try out the caverns. The only reason I didn't put 5 stars is bc of the large group we were in. There were about 50 or so of us in a group (including the... More
