Pretty cool cave. Some unique formations that you don't get to see in most caves. We did the basic tour of the three rooms and we wanted to come back the next day and do the longer tour, but the tour guide said we basically saw everything. I thought that comment was interesting since you'd think they would hype it... More

This is a must-do if you come to Great Basin. I am claustrophobic, so I was anxious before we actually went into the cave... but the cave has high ceilings, it is well lit, and the air is ~50 degrees and fresh so I ended up being okay. The ranger was also incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and kept the 90 minute... More

Our tour through Lehman Caves was incredible. The ranger who led the tour was excellent, we learned a lot without it being a boring lecture... she paced the information flow and doled it out in sensible chunks. When all the lights were out and we were in total darkness it was humbling and awe-inspiring. The caves are indescribable, all I... More

Worth the visit just to see the cave. We've been in several caves and rate this one number one. The walk is somewhat challenging as with most caves but easily doable if you are able to walk, bend, and stoop. Be sure to get tickets online well in advance of your visit. Some could not get tickets at the desk... More

This amazing limestone and marble cavern too good to pass up ! There are 2 tours available, the first lasts about 60 minutes and the second is 90 minutes- the only difference is how far they go into the cavern, but the shorter tour sees the same cavern you will see in the longer tour, so take the longer one...

This ix the one thing you must do if you are in Great Basin National Park - the tours are guided by the park rangers and and there is a $10 entry fee, but the small cost is well worth it. The tour is about 90 minutes long and tour groups are kept small - about a dozen people at... More

This was a great crave tour experience for my family. The tour guide was fun and informative. My boys (6 & 8) were captivated the entire time. It's a beautiful cave and you should go if you are anywhere near. It was the highlight of our Great Basin trip.....the kids might say their highlight was being "held up" by cowboys... More

Tours take place several times a day. It's highly recommended you book in advance, because they do sell out. There are only 20 spots on a tour. We were going in July, and I booked in late April, and some slots were already filled at that time. Because you are locked into a reservation slot, I would shoot for something... More

It was a great tour. I liked that they kept it to a small group of 20 people. I learned so much about the cave and the ranger was very informative. GBNP beautiful and unique but under rated national park and I personally think that they should charge more for their tours since any proceeds goes to maintenance and fixing... More
