Luray Caverns is amazing and definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. The stalactites and stalagmites are incredible! The tour takes an hour and you are on your feet the whole time. You also have to walk down and back up about 70 steps, so be aware if this is a problem for you. You are walking on... More

We arrived first thing on Monday morning hoping to avoid the crowds. Even though there was no wait to buy our tickets we had to wait until more people arrived and bought their tickets. Our group grew FAST and we had about 50 people heading down with tour guide Tara. She was great but due to the larger size and... More

We came for the caverns. Stayed for the Rope Challenge park, the Garden Maze, the Carriage and Car Museum, Luray Museum, etc etc. Used our Martins grocery card for discount on our tickets. $86 for the day wasn't too shabby. The cavern was super neat. The kids with the 'audio tour' needed wrangled up. It was quite obnoxious to hear... More

We are from NC and are staying at Creekside in Bayse, VA for a spring break week. It was a rainy day so we decided to try out the caverns. The only reason I didn't put 5 stars is bc of the large group we were in. There were about 50 or so of us in a group (including the... More

You hear a lot about this place and there's lots of literature - it's a great tourist destination. But it really is worth the trip! It's just amazing how the rock structures formed and how deep the caverns go. If you have not been here, go.

Cold and slightly raining so we decided to do something inside. Walked in and a tour was just getting ready so our timing was perfect. It was "ok" I guess. Tour was about an hour long and after the first 15 minutes it all looks alike. There is an organ towards the end and many weddings are held here which... More

Visited the caverns over the summer with our children and had an absolutely amazing time. The caverns were simply beautiful, the tour was very well guided with lots of information that was interesting to both children and adults. We had a fantastic time and will visit again next time we are in that area.

The Luray Caverns is an awesome place to visit. Unless you are used to underground caves, there are probably many formations that you have never seen before. Simply beautiful. And there is even an organ that plays music on the stalactites and stalagmites. Well worth the time and money to see. Highly recommend.

The last time I was here, I was in 5th grade. The caverns are exactly the same except you can't touch anything. They use to let you touch the fried eggs for luck but no more. My mother in law had a difficult time since she has a hip issue. The floors are wet so she had to becareful. The... More

This place was an amazing display of the wonder of our planet. We paid for our tickets on line ( a plus we didn't have to wait on two lines because of it ) we did not realize that you have to take the tour via the guide we hoped to explore. Our tour guide Lee was funny and knowledgeable.... More
