This place was amazing! I would recommend it to anyone. The walk was not bad about 1.2 miles not too hilly and i think they said it was 170 steps down and then back up at the end. The mountain drive there was nice too :)

The Cavern is great and we happened to visit when it was homeschool week when they offer great discounts. If you are planning this for a field trip, look into when homeschool week is - they do it twice a year. The ropes course and garden maze are also discounted.

The guided your was very informative, the history was interesting, caverns were remarkable and the size of the caverns was incredible. I've never been to a cavern before but loved this one!

Fantastic trip. Simply, there were amazing things that I saw when our family visited. I'm not much of a driver, and the long hours of spending on the road made me sick, but the trip was definitely worth it. I would definitely go again.

Best cave I've ever been to. The tip I can give is just that if you are the doing the drive this is well worth it. Only about 10 min from exit. There is also a car museum next to it which is included. I'm not a car guy But I enjoyed all the old cars that can be seen... More

The views were amazing and a picture can't capture it's beauty! The history behind it was pretty neat and our tour guide made sure to clearly explain each thing to us to ensure everybody got the most of our tour. The only real complaint is that you have to be either in the front or the back of the line... More

We arrived just before 10AM and the parking lot was nearly empty. When we left about 2 hrs later, it was packed. Beautiful view of the mountains outside and a gorgeous view underground. Our guide Daniel was very informative without getting too "sciencey". Even the young ones in the group were interested for the entire tour. That is a true... More

There were at least 3 different caverns to choose to tour while in the area, but it said these were the biggest so that's how I chose. The cost was $26/pp. Maybe a little pricey, & certainly more than the other cavern choices, but not by that much & if I'm gonna pay near that amount, I want to see... More

I had seen caves before but I am so glad I visited Luray Caverns! They are amazing and go on and on and on! They are well lit and the path allows astounding views! It is not cold in the cave so a light sweater is all you need. The ticket price also takes you to the toy museum, village... More
