This fun tour is surrounded by a beautiful setting! Economical and fun for the whole family. The guides are great....fun, knowledgeable and entertaining! Be sure to bring a sweater or jacket. It is cool in the caverns!

Excellent cave tour. Linville Caverns is an active cave with flowing and dripping water. I expect that the cave is sometimes closed as the water may flow over the walkways. Small tour groups, but there is only one way in and out so you periodically run into other groups. The guides are experienced in handling this, but be prepared to wait as another group passes. This is not a large cave, but there are pretty features. There is ample parking and a picnic area along side a creek.

First time visiting a cave. It was interesting and a short visit (maybe 45 minute tour in total). A sign warned of bats, but there were none to be found that day. Some different stalagmites to look at in shades of green or brown. Cute gift shop had various rocks and crystals for sale. Bring a jacket, it does get cool down there. Don't be skeeved by the dripping water on your head.

Our family and my son's friend visited the Caverns yesterday as our final stop on our mountain weekend getaway. The boys loved the science and history of it, and we loved the beauty of it. It's cool and damp, so dress appropriately, but the tour is short and walkable for most abilities. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. We had a fun time.

We were on our way to Linville Falls and saw a road sign with an arrow to turn left for Linville Caverns. We were not expecting to see this but turned in anyway.
This is a smaller cavern and and the tour is about 35 minutes in length. Our tour guide John was excellent with all kinds of knowledge and information, not only about the Caverns but the surrounding area as well. Thanks John!
As you walk through the Caverns, it does “rain” on you, but just at a drop here and there so if you are worried about getting wet, pull up the hood on your jacket! There is also a stream running through the cave which holds fish! St the very back part of the tour you are about 2,000 feet under ground. Neat!
