Owner description: Come on down (way down) at the largest underground attraction in Texas! Daily guided tours allow guests to explore large underground chambers and see huge formations. The largest room is bigger than a football field. Above ground, discover rocks, minerals, and rough-cut gems at the Natural Bridge Mining Company Sluice. The Canopy Challenge will test your agility on over 40 different obstacles while you are on our 4 story, 60 foot high Adventure Course. Then you can fly across the scenic Texas Hill Country on our zip-lines! (Canopy Challenge is open daily but weather dependent.)

“A Must See”
Reviewed April 15, 2010

We have been to many caves around the country and this one was one of the best so far. The formations were incredible. It is an easy walk through the 75 min tour. Most caves we have been to are cold but this one was warm.

“Hidden wonder”
Reviewed April 13, 2010

Being close to where we live, we always took this for granted as 'just another attraction" in San Antonio. Boy .. we were so wrong. It is magnanimous. Words cannot explain the beauty of the caverns. It is a must on our agenda whenever we take our guests to San Antonio.

“Discover Tour is perfect with children”
Reviewed March 21, 2010

We took the Discovery tour with our 6 year old daughter. This was her first cave. It is gorgeous inside. It is however very wet and can get slippery. We were sweating when we came out, humidity makes it feel lik 85 degrees year round. So if you wear a coat, make sure you can tie it around your waist! Pictures are hard to take, but on night portrait, I got some good ones. They do take your picture inside, but I don't think the place they take it is nearly as good as some spots along the way. A tad on the expensive side, but you can get coupons or advance tickets on ttia.org .... We spent about 4 hours there, but it was very, very, very busy. There is also a drive thru wildlife park that is at the same entrance....

“Impressive cave!”
Reviewed March 16, 2010

We've visited several caves across the country and this was one of the best. We went not expecting much but once inside we were amazed. This cave has some of the nicest and most pristine formations we have seen. Many are very large and in abundance. The walkways are very well maintained with nice sturdy handrails all along the way. However, the walkways are very steep in places especially on the way out so it's not a cave for people that have trouble getting around.

“The highlight of our trip to San Antonio”
Reviewed March 8, 2010

My husband and I were sight-seeing in San Antonio recently, and we took both tours offered at Natural Bridge Caverns. Our day at the caverns was the highlight of our trip. They are gorgeous caves, with huge rooms and spectacular formations.
