The caverns were impressive, but no tour was provided. A few words at the end of the tour were spoken about the eggs and the organ but not much else. We enjoyed the caverns, but the price (24.00) puts a damper on things. Also, arrive early because the lines get very long after 12. Tour also includes two small museums.... More

Visited in july. Caverns were very crowded. It is a beautiful place to see for the whole family, but would be nicer if it wasnt so crowded. You do spend alot of time down there so it is well worth the money. You can view the caverns at your own pace. I would recommend this place for families. Your ticket... More

I have been to many natural caves over the years and not only myself, but all those in my family enjoyed this one very much. Because we went on a holiday weekend and it was so crowded they had self guided tours instead of one with a tour guide. There were appointed tour guides throughout the caverns to help answer... More

Try to listen to the guide if you can while taking pictures so you know what you're looking at. And you will take a lot of pictures! The caverns are awesome!

Stunning experience. We were in the caverns for over 2 hours and could have stayed longer. The variety of formations, informative guides, comfortable temperature and photo opportunities make this a had to beat attraction. Look for half price discount coupon for second adult ticket to make this an even better value. The Car & Carriage Caravan & Luray Valley Museum... More

Beautiful place, too difficult to describe, but very nicely done. We only visited the caverns and not additional places they have there. We went on the 4th of July and it was packed. I would recommend not going on a holiday or weekend, but midweek when there are fewer people.

We drove an hour and a half from our resort in Gordonsville, VA. The temps outside were a scorching 100 degrees. Inside the caverns was a refreshing 52-year round degrees! Words alone cannot do this underground wonder justice. The mirror lake is just one of the marvels that lets you know that there's a higher power at work, even in... More

I have probably been to Luray Caverns 6 or 7 times in my life, and it really doesn't get old. The sheer magnitude of the space is stunning and the tour guides do a great job of pointing out some of the really cool and unique formations in the caverns. It's most crowded on holiday weekends, but it still doesn't... More
