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.)

My family and I have toured the Caverns several times. The staff is friendly, courteous and knowledgable. The caverns are fun and truly breathtaking. We've had the opportunity to take the regular tour, the water tour and the Christmas tour. Can't wait to take the spelunking adventure next. The activities around the caverns like the zip line, maze and ropes... More

I can imagine this being great for families with kids. However, when I went there was a lot of water coming into the caverns--flowing down over your feet as you walk downhill. Seemed pretty slick and not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. I don't think it's normally like this, but worth noting that as a precaution. You could call... More

We went on the Cave tour at Natural Bridge Caverns. It was very informative and beautiful. I wish we had allotted more time and done the zip line. That will be next time!

Great experience! 1000s of years in the making by nature at its best! Spectacular views and a knowledgeable guide. My wife is slightly disabled and uses a rollator by was able to use a walking stick; a bit of a struggle on some of the steeper places but it was well worth it!

We came because the aquifer tour. They have not done them in 7 years. We also did the Hidden Passage tour too. Just to let you know, because it was confusing reading on the website: The aquifer tour is just a modification to the discovery tour. Basically, instead of the regular route, you take another route to see the aquifer... More

My husband and I did one of the shorter tours and we really enjoyed it. The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. There are a lot of stair to climb so keep that in mind before you go. The inside of the cave was spectacular and unique. The tour guide lets you sit in COMPLETE darkness at one point... More

Nice work by nature over several 1000s of years. I would say, must visit the place to appreciate the beauty that lies around 200 ft below the ground.

I took my 2 teenage nephews to Natural Bridge Caverns. We really enjoyed it, we took the Adventure Tour. The natural beauty was well preserved and the tour guide did a good job. It had rained the night before so there was a lot of water pouring into the cavern and the ground was quite slippery. The guide said this... More
