I always wanted to go for this place & I was not at all disappointed when I visited this place. They have guided tours every 20 min or so and the guide will explain you all about the caves. Once you reach inside the cave, you will wonder are you really on our planet or some alien land. Its simple... More

This is an awesome experience that all 'explorers' should undertake. It is simply amazing to see the natural wonders under the earth. You cannot understand how perfect it is without experiencing it for yourself. Plan to do some walking. I think it is only about a mile total but it is dark/dimly lit because it's a CAVE. But it is...

If you are visiting D.C you need to see this place as well. About 95 miles drive through countryside. Do not go via National Park to avoid paying fee. Expect a line to get in. Will not be cheap . But price off admission include car museum as well . Car collection quite impressive. Caverns wide enough to use a... More

The Cavern tour is a must if you are in the area. The sights inside are spectacular. Do not expect this to be in the style of a National Park though. Get there early, or real late to avoid a LONG line waiting outside to get in. If you do see a line, put someone on it, get the tickets,... More

We visited Luray Caverns the first weekend in December, it was awesome! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We were a small group,of 6 that went through the tour, our young tour guide was great! I would suggest a visit during the off season, more one on one!

We visited Luray Caverns in the first week of October with family which included elderly as well as children. The caverns are truly a natural wonder and the intricate designs that were formed over thousands of years is bound to make all spellbound.. The place is extremely well preserved and ideally lit for all to appreciate. The tour guides are... More

My husband and I contemplated visiting the caverns due to the price. We decided to go and I am so glad we did. Pictures don't do it justice! The cavern tour was just over a mile long and while it was crowded, I never felt claustrophobic or unable to snap photos. The tour guide was knowledgable and friendly.
