The perfect caverns

We have enjoyed this 40 minute easy walk under ground multiple times already as it seems that we always have someone new to take there. Beautiful!

Since most of us will only do this once - it was really interesting. However, the price is somewhat high, and the tours move you through the caverns too quickly. You never really got the chance to stand still and take in the natural beauty of the caverns.

We really enjoyed our visit to the caverns. Our tour guide was excellent and I would highly recommend visiting at least once. The caverns are very large and there is a lot to see and learn. Definitely go early if you're not interested in a huge crowd.

It's my third time to come here, but first time with my kids, and every time, it never fail to amaze me. Especially this time, I'm seeing it through my kids' eyes. And wow! The beauty of it, knowing that it's 100% nature's work, shaped over millions of years, is something that will just leave you in awe. Entrance fee... More

Signs ALL over this area point to Luray Caverns, among other caverns, with signage over seemingly every local highway. Like going here is a right of passage. Luray is pricey at $26 per adult ticket, but the caverns tour, which lasted just over an hour, takes you through a truly natural, magnificent wonder. Luray is a magical caverns with gorgeous...

Loved everything about the tour, go a litte earlier in the day if you do not want to deal with bigger crowds and groups.

When we first got here for 4 people the tickets were about a hundred bucks. we thought that was expensive until we realized it was over an hour long tour and the place was enormous. you end up walking over a mile total underground. it was one of the prettiest caverns we have been in to date.

Really cool to see how nature works over eons. It wasn't as cold as some other caves I've been in and the paths were nicely done and fairly wide to accommodate the groups.

All I can say is that this was an amazing experience. The Luray Caverns are truly incredible and the tour is educational, interesting, and fun. Although it is pricey to get in, it is worth it. The tour runs just about a full hour and it takes you over a mile walking distance. Tips: wear tennis shoes as the ground... More

The trip to the luray caverns was beautiful and full of fresh air. The caverns tell of ancient past times of great rivers that washed through the caverns clearing out rock and sand creating great beauty that speaks of Gods hand as only nature can do. Yes do go to the great caverns and all other caverns because they are... More
