I don’t think you can visit Luray without going here. The cavern is huge, well maintained, and really is amazing. Price is not cheap ($28/adult) but it’s worth it to see it.

What a beautiful cave. I’ve been to a cave or two, and although not huge, this one is very beautiful. Nice guides as well. A bit pricey I think

I have been wanting to go to Luray Caverns all my life. I finally got the opportunity this past weekend and was it one of the poorest decisions I have made in a long time. I love caverns and I go as often as I...More

I guess it would depend on the line to get in, but the actual tour to walk thru the cavern was about 1 hour.
