Made this a birthday trip and was not disappointed. Well worth the price and the nearby transportation museum is an additional positive. Be sure to ask locals when best to go to the caves to avoid long lines.

Beautiful. Historic. Awesome. Truly a must-see in Luray. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and amazingly patient with the guests, both adults and children, who couldn't seem to understand the meaning of "do not touch the rock formations."

We had a great time at the caverns. The scenic drive was amazing. This natural wonder is worth the visit. Once you get past the steps its a fun adventure. Stick close to the guide so you can hear all of the history and education.

With a well paved path and steps with railings, there is easy access to this series of underground caverns filled with formations, ponds, and dripping stalactites and stalagmites. One pond offered stunning mirror-like reflections and in one large chamber and organ that played the stalactites...More

The entire mile long path of the tour is paved making it an easy walk, even for those who might typically have difficulty. Only the pathway at the end gets a little tight and low. Almost the whole tour is in big open rooms and...More
