We stayed in Lexington at a B&B and drove about an hour and a half to the caverns but it was worth it! We went on 09/12/14 which was a Friday and it wasn't crowded at all. We went with the next group and there were hardly any kids! One disappointment is that they don't honor the AAA discount by... More

We were traveling on the Skyway Drive and it was pouring rain and foggy and we couldn't see anything. So we got off the highway and stopped at the caverns. We heard it was a great place to visit and we weren't disappointed. We went on one of their tours and it was very beautiful We had been to other... More

We went to Luray Caverns yesterday and had a great time. Flew into Luray Airport and walked to the caverns. About 1.2 miles and hilly so you should be in decent shape to do that. If not they will shuttle you back and forth. Last time I was there was in the late sixties as a child. It was great... More

It is expensive but worth the money. No great for people with walking issues, it's a lot of walking up and down, small spaces. Wonderful experience for kids! Have Fun!!

We did the Luray Caverns, Luray Valley Museum, Car&Carriage Caravan, Garden Maze, Rope Adventure Park, and Gem Sluice-so much fun for the kids-. In all, an awesome trip, and lucky for us, on a gorgeous day!

I have twins and a stroller. After calling and asking numerous employees whether the caverns were stroller friendly, they all said yes. This was not the case! After giving my ticket to the employee, I saw steps, I asked how many and I thought the employee said 7...haha big mistake, there are 70 steps! It was impossible for me to... More

First of all i am reviewing the cave itself, which is absolutely breathtaking. Not even profi photographs can give back the beauty, because all pictures are missing the depth which your eyes can folow but the lense cannot. I've never seen a flowstone cave which was so perfectly covered of stalactites and stalagmites variating in size and colour. Your imagination... More

I am so very glad that we visited the Luray Caverns in Virginia during our recent trip to the United States. Luray Caverns can be a very interesting and fascinating natural underground attraction for people who have never had the experience of being in caves. Just cannot imagine that over long periods of time, tiny drops of lime-water can form... More

This tour was just ok. It is much warmer than we were warned which made for a hot and uncomfortable tour. While the guide was friendly and tried to make things funny, he was VERY HARD to hear and the constant stops dragged the tour out longer than necessary. It would have been a far better experience to go at... More
