This tour is interesting and the guide excellent. It can be cool lower in the cavern and a little slippery in parts but well worth a visit. Enjoyable for adults and kids alike as guide involves folks along the way and keeps their attention

Beautiful cavern. Very informative and friendly staff. Went family 2 adults, 2 children ages 13 and 10. All enjoyed. Bring a sweater, longish walk, some points slightly challenging. Can definitely recommend. Has gift shop and food court, which was a clean, but dated, limited food choices but will do in a pinch.

What a wonderful experience, every thing was beautiful and the guide was well paced. I would recommend everyone check out not just the caverns but the carriage museum as well. Our tour guide, Tara, was AMAZING! I've been on tours all over the world and she was by far the best. She spoke slow and clearly, was super informative, and... More

The caverns themselves are like any other caverns. However there are a couple of museums (one history and one auto) along with a couple of other attractions on the property which make it worthwhile to visit. Reasonably priced for what you get. Kids will love it.

We visited Luray Caverns with our children (ages 13-8) - I would not recommend bringing children under 8 or so, as it's 1 1/4 mile walk total through caverns and takes quite a while. My youngest (8), was struggling to remain attentive by the end. The caverns are amazing - the structures- just amazing!! The tour was much much too... More

It has been over 10+ years since I have been here. Now that I have 2 kids of my own 10 & 9. We decided to do a day trip here. Not that bad of a drive if you start out early. It was about a 3 hr. drive for us not too long. The scenery was amazing and my... More

We specifically stopped here travel king thru other cavern site billboard beckoning off the interstate. Quick tips: X family of 4 close to $90. They take military and AAA discount. Could not find Entertainment club or brochure coupon. X Luray Caverns is a corporation so they have to make money. They have bundled in other museum onsite properties, whether you're... More

Although the cost of admission was $26 for adults, it is definitely worth the visit. Essentially, the cost of admission gives you access to various other attractions on the property in addition to touring the caverns. The tour is about an hour long give or take a few minutes. The scenery is also stunning as Shenandoah National Park is nearby.... More
