I had an 83 year old and a 6 year old with me on this tour. Both did well. Well lit. Entertaining guide. They push the group through. Tours start every 5 minutes. Not as cold down under as I expected given experience in other cave tours. A bit pricey. No AAA discounts given. Lots of steps down in and... More

We were staying at Yogi Bear Camp and we had a rainy day. My husband really wanted to go to these caverns. It cost 82.00 for our family of 5 to get admission and I was skeptical if it was really worth the money for an activity that would take about 1.5 hours. Boy was I wrong!! We went early... More

I had been wanting to visit Luray Caverns for a long time. It always seemed too far away, but I recently learned it's only 90 minutes from the beltway/rt 66 area. So I decided to take my two sons (ages 5 and 7) on a day trip this week. Poor daddy was at work and missed out. It was a... More

Great way to spend a half day with a visit to Luray Caverns. The 1 1/2 mile walk was eay and fun. Don't forget to bring a camera as you will have many oppourtunities to take some really cool photos. Put this stop on your bucket list if you are in the area, It's only 15 miles east off Interstate... More

We are on a five weeks trip around the USA. Friends in Ohio mentioned that they had been here recently and ranked it #1 in caves/caverns to see in USA (they have seen several). So we added this excursion to our itinerary. Wow! Are we ever glad we did see this. So many varieties of formations, it was a photographers'... More

This is a must to see! At up to 160' below ground and 1 1/4 mile long, it is nature at its best. My dad (77) who walks with a cane had little problems doing the trip. The caves have lots of hand rails and excellent walking paths, just take your time. Our guide was excellent as well. The beauty... More

If you judge the caverns separate from the rest of the tourist trap this place has become is undeniably a magical work of wonder that only Mother Nature can create. No picture can do justice to this place. Our tour guide, Catherine (maybe spelled with K?) was very knowledgeable, pleasant and funny. Tip: to avoid long lines and enjoy small... More

This was a nice respite on a rainy morning, especially after we had worn ourselves out in SNP the day before. Truly beautiful and fascinating rock formations and natural wonders, which you were welcome to photograph, but.... The price was pretty steep for a one-hour tour with lots of people, the entire pathway inside the cave was paved -- there... More

This is an amazing attraction. It is easy to find and has enough to see to keep a family entertained for most of a day. The Cavern tour takes about an hour. Wear pants & a jacket. The caverns are always 54 degrees F.
