Come on down (way down) at the largest underground attraction in Texas! Daily guided tours allow guests to explore large underground chambers and see huge formations. The largest room is bigger than a football field. Above ground, discover rocks, minerals, and rough-cut gems at the Natural Bridge Mining Company Sluice. The Canopy Challenge will test your agility on over 40 different obstacles while you are on our 4 story, 60 foot high Adventure Course. Then you can fly across the scenic Texas Hill Country on our zip-lines! (Canopy Challenge is open daily but weather dependent.)

The caverns themselves are beautiful. But your experience will very depending on the tour guide you get. Ours was horrible. He kept pushing people to go through as fast as he could, never mind the old couple falling behind in the back. He didn't wait for everyone before he started talking and missed a lot of things. But the tour... More

Smaller cave but not touristy. Located north of San Antonio. Guides are very good. Caverns are really good.

My daughters loved this cave. They are 11 and 14. It is not to long or to short of a tour. It is just right. Takes about an hour, we only did the cave tour.

Hi all. Well let me say, I love doing touristy things, lol. Lucky enough to live in an area that has so many places to visit. The Natural Bridge Caverns is one of these places. Let me say upfront, if you're claustrophobic, don't go in, lol. The tour is like a mile, into this magical world of Stalactites & Stalagmites.... More

Its a little costly to see a hole in the ground however its a once in a lifetime deal. I saw the cavern when I was 12, I never forgot it. Just took my son at 12, he wont stop talking about it. The staff is very knowledgeable and receptive to questions. Although I will comment they are perfunctory. I... More

the pictures of the cave showed beautiful crystals. Apparently, the "clean" part of the cave is not part of the standard tour. I love caves and have seen commercial caves all across the US. This is definately the bottom 10%. The "glass bottom" boat on the largest lake is....misleading. Yes the boat has a glass bottom. That said, the glass... More

Nice tour, different from many other tours as we have been on. The paths are more natural, steep, wet, and narrow which makes it a nice experience. Definitely worth the money. About 60 min in the cave.

one of the absolute wonders of the Texas hill country. we went there in the mid 60's, took our kids there when they were old enough to appreciate it, and now took our grandkids, they really loved it. they have made the tour even better over the years.
