Caverns are beautiful and enchanting, not that I have never seen anything like that (in my home country, Georgia, we have bigger ones), but really impressive :)

We were pleasently surprised that this is not the typical tourist trap cave with 4" stalactites in a few small rooms. This is a very large cave with lots of variety of cave formations. The tour requires a fair amount of up and down but not strenuously so. There are a couple of "bonus" museums attached. I was prepared to... More

Just breath taking. Amazing beauty that time and nature had made. Every direction is just beautiful sites. We did find that they are very busy mid day so go early .

I felt like I was in part of the Goonies movie waiting to strike gold! The caverns were amazing! Very cool and our tour guide was very informative and had a fun sense of humor. I felt bad because despite how many times she mentioned to please keep quiet during the organ performance this one woman insisted on asking questions.... More

What an amazing place to visit. I had no idea what to expect and found myself in awe. The caverns are open everyday rain or shine and the tour takes about one hour. Tours start every 20 minutes. The path is paved and safe and well-lit. It travels through a geological wonderland. Everywhere you look is a great photo opportunity.... More

The caverns were absolutely beautiful. It seemed like something Disney would have created. Everywhere you looked there was a different view of the caverns. My husband was impressed with how they had an organ there which was used for weddings.

WOW. The photos really don't do this place justice. The caverns are amazing to see in person and the "organ" playing at the end is incredible. Bring a sweater as it's MUCH cooler underground in the cavern. Would highly recommend this experience for the whole family.

Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend we found ourselves in DC for work and just a few precious days off for fun. We have seen the DC memorials many times so I was searching for something different to do that wasn't too far away from Alexandria, VA. Fortunately we made a great decision to visit both Skyline Caverns and Luray Caverns.... More

Sometimes you wish that places like this offered “Adults Only” tours. You pay good money to go on these kind of tours and would like to hear what is being said, but when there are several families with small children that have no idea what is going on, why they are there or could care less, the hour plus tour...
