We stopped here when were in the area seeing other attractions. It was a good tour thru the caverns and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. I would recommend for families and anyone who isn't afraid of small spaces. It was a little expensive but worth seeing once in your life.

We had a great guide with a small group. The average time is 45 mins. You walk down 35 stories deep. There are many stairs. This is my 4th Cavern and I think it is worth seeing. Adult ticket is $19. A combo ticket with the Natural Bridge is offered. You may have to purchase the combo ticket from the... More

Smaller cavern but worth visiting. Our guide was awesome. My kids and I enjoyed it. Bring a light jacket.

Interesting and cool on a hot day but not worth the entry price. Guide was very pleasant but did not have a clue really about what we were looking at. Good thing there was a geologist on the tour with us. Poorly informed after two seasons of working there.

We did this as an add on to our Natural Bridge Park visit. It was a good value for the combo ticket. The guide was humorous while also educating us on the caverns. She was likable and made the experience lots of fun. I would recommend this tour to families, adults, or children. He cave is a little cool, so... More

Breath-taking natural sights.....i felt like $20 was a bit expensive for a self guided tour through the woods but definitely glad I did it. So many sights in one place waterfalls, underground streams, caves, wildlife and of course the bridge itself amazing.

Our group visited the caverns while camping in the Natural Bridge area over Labor Day. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the caverns and the formations inside. Most of the walk was easy but I elected not to continue on the last portion of the tour that was 45 steps further down into the cavern and... More

My friend and I stopped by Natural Bridge Caverns last week during our short trip to Natural Bridge with our daughters (9 and 16). It was not much more than the ticket to see the actual bridge, so why not? So glad we did it! Our tour guide, Royce, was AMAZING.. Not only did he give us a fantastic tour,... More

Being in Virginia I never knew that there were caverns here, deepest in the east coast. Our guide was funny and entertaining
