You need to see it to believe it. It is almost unreal the rock formation and natural beauty created by dripping water. Yes it's expensive, yes there is a mile walk, some of it uphill and yes it's underground. Expect the things that go with that and be amazed. The tour guide was knowledgeable and personable and was able to... More

Absolutely beautiful and amazing. We visited with two teenagers and our 11 year old son while on a Christmas break vacation. With it being off season there were no lines or waiting for everything. We did a guided tour that was full of information. Very cool experience for all of us.

The place is great, I only have a problem with the poor selection of food.If they could have a better restaurant it would be great. Don't get me wrong, the people at the restaurant are very nice and friendly. But, the food is kind of old, and not to healthy and pricely. We really had a great time all around... More

Totally worth the money, you won't be disappointed! Easy to walk on paved pathways, wheelchair accessible and there were audio tours available in other languages. The guide was also funny and invested in making it a great experience for everyone. There are also other attractions on the site, we only visited the transport museum which was also interesting!

We have been to caverns before but never to any that compare to these. We had to wait in line for about an hour with a 6 year old and 16 month old which was not fun but once we got moving the kids enjoyed it. It is a pretty long tour/walk but is entertaining/interesting the whole way through. I... More

We took a tour of the impressive caverns over Labor Day weekend with our 3 boys and infant baby girl .... the lines were manageable and they were able to get us setup in no time. The tour guide was able to engage our children and keep them interested for the entire hour , with animated stories and fun facts.... More

This is a hidden piece of earth that just makes you wonder and wax mystical about the beauty and the mystery in the universe. Who would guess that there is an intricate, gorgeous cavern below a random hillside in VA? And who knows how many others there are! We visited Luray Caverns on an extremely hot and muggy day.... and... More

My family visited the caverns and we were blown away! Every step you take is a new beautiful view. Our tour guide Cory was great; he was very excited about the caverns and I enjoys his jokes. I found it to be a bit expensive but the price does include 2 other museums. There are other items you can 'add-on'... More
