Good for little kids and young families

We took small kids and it was small enough to not have them overly tired. The fact that not as many people go to this one compared to the other one is also good with little kids.

If it's raining or too hot, this is the place to go. The caverns are always cool. Give yourself some time because it's a busy place with lots of tourists, but the caverns are fantastic and the guides are good. Take lots of pictures.

We stopped at the Info Booth in Front Royal and were greeted by an outstanding guide who told us about the Caverns. She provided us with maps of Skyline Drive and suggested a route which we followed. The Cavern tour was excellent and the guide, Sunny did a great job.

We weren't sure which caverns to check out while in the area. We decided to go to the most convenient one, and we were not let down. We used a coupon to get $2 off per person. Our tour guide, Brooke, was awesome. She was super friendly, and kept us laughing the whole time. The caverns were beautiful, and we... More

This is a well done cavern. I've been to caverns all over the country from ones you ride in jeeps to Carlsbad caverns in New Mexico. This one is a great tour. They have many excellent formations including an ultra rare crystal. Give it a look.

Did not take the tour - too expensive - but the shop was interesting - A ticket costs $20. I don't begrudge the $20 - but it was too expensive for me at this time. I did look around at the shop and took a photo of a very impressive geode.

Often overlooked due to the popular Luray Caverns nearby (which are larger). We have visited both sites and were equally impressed. These caverns were a nice surprise, closer to Front Royal and WORTH visiting. Don't miss out if you are in the area. (maybe even check to see if they have a deal on Groupon - it makes it an... More

if you have 67 minutes and nothing else to do on a chilly day. There are some very rare growths down there to be worth going. It is a bit over a mile walk and no, the 61 steps weren't told to us by the ticket seller. We did find out from the other staffer as a matter of fact... More

This was a surprise to have such access to an under earth wonder. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to accommodate all people's backgrounds and cater for them. The cavern system has been really well prepared for tourists and I think the small sized groups that are escorted through provides a personal touch. This is set... More
