I'm not actually claustrophobic, but I do prefer daylight adventures. That said; I'm very glad our friends convinced me I would enjoy this place. The caverns have safe footing and handrails throughout most of the over 1 mile of viewing and all trips are guided. The young lady who took our group through was very knowledgeable and pleasant. She shared... More

The town is lovely and the caverns are spectacular. Tour guide was informative and the group we were in was small so we could see everything and take pictures.

The cavern is wonderful to see for any ABLE BODIED INDIVIDUAL. If you are elderly or disabled, in any way, they cannot accommodate you. Walkways are steep and stairs to exit are hard to manage. There is a handicap lift at bottom of stairs, which we were told, has not worked in months. One elderly lady, with walker, had no... More

We have been to Luray before and will go back again! It's a beautiful cavern system and the tour is nice. The fall is the best time to go, and if you can swing it during the week you won't be disappointed. It's not crowded, which makes it that much more pleasant for taking pictures! We would probably go with... More

Luray is absolutely beautiful. I felt as if it was cold but the tour guide said it wasn't as cold as I thought it was.

We went to the caverns on a Monday instead of over the weekend thinking that would be better crowd-wise. Boy were we wrong!! There were a tremendous number of tour buses and schools on field trips too. They took the groups down separately from the individual ticket holders which was good and bad. They call for a new group every... More

The tour is well-organized and the guide easy to hear. The lighting in the cavern is done very well, and it is impressive--you walk for a mile, from "room to room," so to speak, and up and down levels. Stairs are only at the beginning and the end. It's not a short tour, but not too long. You could take... More

My family was staying in Gordonsville,VA on vacation and took the hour and a half drive to see the caverns. It was a cold rainy day which is the perfect thing to do on such a day. It's was a beautiful drive and it was worth it as the caverns were so amazing to see! At the deepest point in... More

What a surprise! I thought it would be a tourist trap, but it was actually fascinating. The ticket includes a visit to the car and carriage museum, which we visited only to fill in the time before the next tour of the caverns, however it was very, very good and we could have spent a lot longer looking at the...
