A little pricey compared to other places and venues of the same. Be sure to bring your comfortable walking shoes and be sure to grab a jacket too....it can get very chilly underground. Nice tour and gift shop. Cool stories about the caverns

Four families visited during wedding weekend. An enjoyable 30 minutes. Coolest part was the water table and when guide kills lights for total darkness.

We’ve been to other caverns before. Will all have similarities they all have their unique attributes. Dixie Caverns definitely fits this bill. The tour last about an hour where you ascend up into the cavern (not down like most). There were lots of things to...More

What a great little cave to explore not far from Roanoke, Virginia. Ask for Preston, he's their best tour guide and knows the cave inside out.

I stopped here with my family while on a short vacation trip to Virginia. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour through the cavern with our tour guide Dillon. He was very knowledgeable and very funny. I think we'd go back again if in the area....More

Agreed. I think the most stroller-friendly cavern in the area is Shenandoah, but you could do this one with a well-rested walking toddler.

It would be a nightmare to bring a stroller. There are a lot of stairs, uneven surfaces, small areas. There is a space you can leave the stroller at the top (before entering the caverns).
