To begin with, the only reason I'm not giving this place "5 stars" is because I feel it's overpriced for what it is. However, we did enjoy the cavern tour and our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The car museum was small but nice,...More

We have been to world renowned caverns and these compare with the best. Beautiful, expansive and the organ at the end - inspiring! However... UGH - the crowd control was miserable. We waited on a hot sidewalk next to black asphalt after purchasing tickets in...More

The cost was $27 and well worth it. The Caverns are absolutely gorgeous. It's about a one mile walk underground but fairly easy walking. You also get admission to the car museum.

The caverns are undoubtedly beautiful and astonishing. The issue with them is the tourists, yes I know, I'm one of them, I can self-criticize with the best of them. The folks at Luray do their best to keep folks moving along, but you know sometimes...More

We stopped here on a road trip from New Jersey to Nashville. It was definitely worth the stop. The place is beautiful. The tour guide was very informative. It's not cheap but definitely worth the price of admission. They take photos of your group/family before...More

So my family and I stopped into the caverns and really enjoyed our tour. I thought the price of $96 (2 adults and three children with a discount) was a bit pricey in my opinion. The tour is about an hour, and the caves are...More

As boys, we enjoyed many adventures with out parents. One memorable event was my first visit to a cavern. I was probably about 9 years old on my first visit to Luray. The cavern was so beautiful that I have carried memories of that experience...More

I think it is $17.50 for adults and I would set aside a good 1.5 hours to go through the caves.

I do not think the Caverns are wheelchair accessible. There are a lot of steps that lead you down into the caverns and I am not sure there are alternative entry points. Like others I would say to call just to double check.
