This should be on everyone's bucket list. Words and pictures don't do it justice. One tip though is to go very early or close to closing time. It can be very crowded! People from all over the world. We were the only ones in our group who spoke English as their first language.

We went on a holiday weekend. The wait to get in was a little long, but worth it. I hadn't been to the caverns since I was a kid, about 40 years ago. The walk thru is easy. The guides are knowledgable. Some of the formations are breathtaking. The mirror lake is incredible. We could have spent an hour looking... More

The caverns are very large and the tour would be quite informative....if you can hear the guide. The group sizes are way too large and people in the back apparently get bored and just talk amongst themselves so you end up hearing your fellow tourists much more than the tour guide. I learned absolutely nothing on this tour but that... More

Hi, Recently visited the Luray caverns with Family and we all loved it. The caves are well maintained and its the easiest cave to walk on. I have visited mammoth caves in Kentucky which is the mother of all caves due to its size. 1) Caves are well maintained 2) Less steps to climb and easy to walk inside cave... More

My only complaint was that I stood in line about30 minutes before I noticed that you are supposed to go and get your tickets first, and then go stand in line. The ine was so long that there were no signs to say that THS line was for ticket holders only. I was solo and did not have anyone to... More

A good place to visit and value for money. Beautiful caverns, a guided tour. Other small museums to visit in with the price. Ice cream, gift shops and cafes.

The price for this was $24 which included the caverns, the Car and Carriage Museum and the Luray Valley Museum. The caverns were beautiful and there were guides along the way that would tell you specifics about a particular area. This took about an hour. We then went to the Car and Carriage Museum, which we thought was pretty interesting.... More

The caverns are truly a wonder of nature and are well presented. Lighting is good and the guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. While I knew something of the geology of such caverns, I learned a lot about how they are created and the materials of which they consist. The tour takes about an hour and is a demanding... More

I had been to these caverns as a teen - stunning beauty of the Caverns flooded back. Sadly, not guided and can't get the audio once entering caverns. Spent hours enjoying the gorgeous cavern formations.
