I was astounded at the beauty of the caverns! But got bored - after awhile it was same ole thing! The tour guides were sparse but I guess after awhile what can you say! My 8 year old niece was bored after awhile. She loved the gift shop!

Obviously, Luray Caverns is huge and beautiful. It is well lit and there are guides at stops along the tour. However, I found that our family preferred smaller cavern tours like Crystal Caverns and the like, where one tour guide takes the group around and it is less lit and less crowded. The boys said it felt "commercial" compared to... More

So much to do here, not just the beautiful caverns that were amazing, but the ropes course was a blast!

I took my kids there this past week. Though it is not the first time I have been to the caverns (about 4 times now), this was the first time that I had taken my two younger sons. It amazes me that each time I go there, I am still left in absolute awe of how spectacular they are. Our... More

Virginia has quite a few fascinating caves and caverns to choose from and explore, but we think Luray takes the cake. It starts with an all-encompassing facility that allows kids of all ages to prance around, learn, eat and shop right on the premises. From the eatery, to the gift shop, to the car and carriage museum, just to mention... More

We traveled to Luray Caverns and it is our first stop in our 12 days trip to the Eastern part of the USA. It was a very nice experience. Seeing Caverns for the first time. Could have been more enjoyable if we didn't have a noisy toddler with us. But that is life. Anyways, strollers are allowed (you just have... More

Loved the caverns, they were beautiful. The location is very crowded, so the management would be doing visitors a favor if they let them flow through with stopping the group at the very beginning. So many people taking pictures that it created a bottle neck that took quite a while to get through. There are mentions of tour guides, but... More

We are a family group of 7. Today we opted to do the garden maze first (before too hot) and next the cavern tour. We had a lot of fun in the maze, young and old! Next, the caverns. I'm surprised someone said there was no tour guide as we had to wait until a tour guide could led us... More

My family and I spent a morning here before entering Shenandoah National Park. The tour is 1.25 miles and takes about an hour. I was traveling with my parents (in their 60s) and my two children (11 and 9). Everyone in the party enjoyed the tour. The walkways are designed to be as slip-proof as possible. Unlike some caves, the... More
