Time of year
I've visited a couple times, but I wanted to bring my gf who had only seen pictures and never a cavern that even comes close to Luray. She loved it and took many memorable pics of the formations. Never gets dull.
Went to Luray Caverns summer 2019 with my grandkids and they loved it !! They wanted to stop and observe everything. Tour guide was very friendly, but rushed us a bit to enjoy all the amazing features. Cost was a bit high, but not excessive.
I'm not really a cavern person but I enjoyed this tour and history and the variety of the cavern formations! My wife booked this on a whim, but we were pleasantly surprised how enjoyable it was. Also, how peaceful and serene it is underground.
I made a day trip to Luray Caverns from DC with my mom and two sons, 6 and 3 (and a puppy!). Everyone had a fantastic time. The tour is incredibly kid friendly, and perfect for active kids. The tour guide was patient and informative, and he was more than happy to answer lots…
This was an enjoyable tour! The paved walk way allowed for easy footing. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer the many questions from the group. No stairs and easy access.
