I have been to caverns before in different parts of the country but the Luray caverns were truly the most awesome and incredible that I've ever seen. The tour is about an hour and very informative. You can take all of the photos that you like and ask questions along the way. My husband and I bought the audio sets... More

I love Luray Caverns and I have gone maybe 3 times but it is not so place to go if you are in a big family. This is definitely a tourist trap and it is way to overpriced. But the views there are amazing and I love the stories that go along with it. Wonderful place for children but I... More

The cavern is amazing!! It's worth the trip. It takes about 1 hour to do the tour. You visit in groups with a guide but can easily take pictures. The visit is in english and you can get a little ipod for different languages but you need to pay a fee. Also with your ticket you can visit the car... More

This tour is well worth the price of admission. We arrived late in the day but were lucky enough to catch the last tour. We've seen many other caverns, but this one is truly spectacular. Our guide was friendly and informative and gave us enough time to stop and gaze, take pictures, etc. The group was not so large that... More

What a great attraction. It is about an hour and 15 minute tour that covers about 1.25 miles. We only had a 10 minute wait for the tour to start. The formations were like nothing I have ever seen and the tour guide was very knowledgable and informative. Dream lake and the organ are worth the price of admission alone.... More

I think it was 20 something per person. Has a nice gift shop and the employees are really nice, answering any questions you might have. There are several steps down to where the tour starts, and I am not sure if there was an elevator or not. The guided tour is quite informative and very personable. It takes about an... More

We came on vacation to get away from the hustle and bustle of life (and long lines in the heat). This place is definitely quite a popular tourist attraction. We had to wait on line to purchase tickets then wait in line to join a tour-- both lines were outside in the heat. Total we waited about 45.minutes outside. Once... More

Our family went on a group tour with Carolyn. The caverns were spectacular-they exceeded all expectations. Young and old were amazed and in awe. Carolyn did a wonderful job with our group & was very engaging. A must see!

This place could have been an awful tourist trap but it turned out great. Yes, I would imagine this place is VERY busy at peak season but we were lucky to have a small group of about 10. It is expensive, I think over $20 per adult but by the end of the experience we felt it was more than... More
