First off, this is not an inexpensive tour, at $24 per adult. If you have a Giant Supermarket card, show it at the ticket counter and you will receive 1/2 off one ticket with purchase of another ticket at full price (we stopped by Giant in Charlottesville just to get the card/discount!). It might be worth showing your AAA card... More

Luray Caverns is worth seeing if you live in the area or are passing through. Great photo opportunities in the caves, but ultimately a bit of a tourist trap. Make sure you use your Giant card to get a discount. The tour is a bit long. I wish that visitors were allowed to walk and move at their own pace... More

We weren't sure how this would go over with our two boys (8 & 4), but we are glad we did it. The sight is beautiful and it's really neat to see something this old is still growing. The tour was detailed and worth it.

Grandparents with three grandsons (grade school & middle school) and all three kids liked it a lot. Tour was interesting. Not too fast, not too slow. I would go back again some day.

The trip to Luray can be a magnificent start to your adventure if you go by Skyline Drive. Don't try this if the weather is bad or the clouds are low, The views are unbelievable. The caverns are another world. The one hour tour of the caverns is a trip to another world. The stalactites and stalagmites are breathtaking. The... More

It was a rainy day, hardly suitable for cruising Skyline Drive in my convertible. So we opted to go underground at Luray Caverns. I have been there before with my kids but my friend had never visited this attraction. It's a quick 1 hour tour, led by a knowledgeable guide, through a natural wonderland. The reflecting underground lakes were my... More

I was really quite surprised how good and lengthy the formations were in these caverns, especially after being underwhelmed at the caverns in Natural Bridge earlier in the year. The reflective pool was easily the highlight, but there is a lot to see down there. The line goes faster than you think, primarily because they let in something like 100... More

We visited this spot on Labor Day. We knew there will be thousands of people, but actually it was not too bad. In fact, we were lucky to choose Monday cause on Sunday there were 5000 visitors. So I guess my advice would be to avoid the long weekends crowds. The cavern is beautiful, has very unique formations. Each tour... More

We visited Luray Caverns in early September this year. It was a little pricey, but the views inside were really stunning. We have been in a lot of caves/caverns over the years, and this was one of the largest we've been in. There are some really interesting formations, and the mirror pond was very cool, but hard to capture on... More
