I have mixed feelings as I write about Luray Caverns. The Caverns themselves are VERY nice, very impressive. Unfortunately I left with the feeling that all the management cared about was getting your money and getting you out of there. First the admission price; no...More

We loved the caverns! This is something you have to see for yourself. A little pricy but definitely worth it.

We took a detour to visit the Luray Caverns and it was well worth it. They are imposing and spectacular. A guide conducts a walking tour, which lasts about an hour. It is not difficult but there are a number of stairs to descend to...More

Only difference will be in the crowds. Summer is peak time, fewer people will visit in Feb. In the summer it gets busy enough that they let people walk through at their own pace with guides stationed at major features to... More
