Okay... there is no doubt that the Caverns are kind of Other-Worldly - especially when one sees the reflection of the stalagtites in the still pond below it. For that brief, shimmering moment, I was transfixed. Otherwise, the guide (though well-intentioned) has such a bad...More

One of the worlds Natural Wonders, the best Cavern in Virginia. No worries about walking up and down they have an elevator. Lots to do outside of the Cavern also, fun kid activities, food and drinks.

For a person with so many types of fobia the underground experience was unique, I learned a lot about the stalagmites and stalactite. It’s was a educational experience and I surely recommend everyone to try it.

This is the third cavern that I have toured. It was by far the best. It was huge, beautiful, spacious and easy to walk! My husband and I were both very impressed! I highly recommend!

It was a really warm day outside but it was really nice and cool in the caverns! Remember to bring your Giant card to receive a reduced rate - they don't have a military discount. The children (7 of our grands) and the adults in...More

At first I thought it was high at $28.00 but that includes the car museum and the history museum. Great place to visit, our tour guide Nate was very informative.

Fascinating spot, loved the guided tour. Highly recommended. Waited in line for maybe 15 minutes and took the tour which lasted 45 minutes. There is a bit of walking, but certainly not strenuous.

Its a must see if you are in Virginia. It can be clubbed with Shenandoah valley trip and Apple picking in Jimmy Carter's farm on the way from Richmond

It is not really guided. There are guides along the way. You can go at your own pace but you do stop to hear the guides when you get to them. However in between you are on your own.

I guess it would depend on the line to get in, but the actual tour to walk thru the cavern was about 1 hour.
