It really is a natural wonder! The caverns are big, bigger than shenandoah, well maintained, the tour guide did explain everything very well.It was so worth driving 4 hours just to visit this place. I have been to both shenandoah and Luray, loved both. A must visit place!

The entire family really enjoyed going to the caverns. The lines were long about a 20-30 minute but once we got in there it was worth the wait. We did the audio tour that was great because it helped explain things at our own pace.

Nature at its best. Easy walk in the caverns which is a plus since some caverns are very uneven and steep.

The Luray Caverns has really changed since I first saw them in the 1990s. They have added a few attractions for kids such as the Rope Navigator and Maze. Due to the popularity of the Caverns, the guided tours are usually with about 30 people and are back to back which makes it hard to hear the guide sometimes unless... More

When in Luray you must visit this place. It's very family oriented. The inside is so amazing. Plenty of parking even when it's crowed. Everyone working there is so helpful in answering questions.

Luray Caverns is breathtaking. We went on a hot summer day. The parking lot was packed, luckily we got a spot as soon as we arrived. After a bit waiting, we entered this wonder place. The underground temperature was cool, comfy. We really enjoyed this trip. We live in Bethesda MD, will definitely go back again!

Do not touch the formations or rocks. Respect the natural beauty underground because destroying nature is irreversible. This place is great for a real world geologic experience.

My family enjoyed our visit to Luray. The caverns are amazing and the tour was informative. We particularly loved the reflecting lake.

Touring these caverns was exceptional. There was a small wait time, but the tour guides are nice and walking through the caverns proved to be a breathtaking experience. There is also a garden maze, a ropes course, and a couple of museums and cafes around. A good place to take children, family, or friends on a weekend trip.

This is one of the best show caves I have seen. Good guide on our tour. The adjacent museum is outstanding!
