Was worth the drive. Our tour guide was very entertaining and did not rush us through. We enjoyed every minute of the tour. The photo is well worth the cost. Would do this again if in the area. The formations and ponds are breath taking....More

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.

These were very impressive caverns. During our VA trip, we also visited the Shenandoah Caverns. Glad we went to Luray second, otherwise we would have been underwhelmed. Not sure the Luray cavern is accessible for the handicapped. Shenandoah Caverns did use an elevator to take...More
