The caverns were absolutely beautiful. It seemed like something Disney would have created. Everywhere you looked there was a different view of the caverns. My husband was impressed with how they had an organ there which was used for weddings.

WOW. The photos really don't do this place justice. The caverns are amazing to see in person and the "organ" playing at the end is incredible. Bring a sweater as it's MUCH cooler underground in the cavern. Would highly recommend this experience for the whole family.

Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend we found ourselves in DC for work and just a few precious days off for fun. We have seen the DC memorials many times so I was searching for something different to do that wasn't too far away from Alexandria, VA. Fortunately we made a great decision to visit both Skyline Caverns and Luray Caverns.... More

Sometimes you wish that places like this offered “Adults Only” tours. You pay good money to go on these kind of tours and would like to hear what is being said, but when there are several families with small children that have no idea what is going on, why they are there or could care less, the hour plus tour...

I did this tour on my way back home during thanksgiving weekend, and it was definitely worth it! The guided tour is long enough (1.25 miles) to allow you to observe the cavern from different vantage points. The guide is knowledgeable, and their script is just long enough to make the trip interesting. Plenty of time to take pictures. Be... More

Had a great visit, arrived early and when coming out after the tour noticed we missed a huge line on the Saturday we went, so get there early. The caverns were beautiful, certainly something everyone should see at least once in their lives. Loved the garden maze and the Luray Valley Museum was solid.....the other museum, the car one was...

We visited Luray Caverns while on vacation in Virginia. This was so worth the 2+hours drive to get there. It was so beautiful and amazing to see. Every turn was spectacular.

My kids (11 & 8) were very impressed ( hard to do now-a-days) and enjoyed it immensely. Our tour guide was excellent, definitely enjoyed her job and answered a lot of questions. A definite must-do at least once with the family.

Overwhelmed! Great place to see the most amazing rock formations in the world. All this hidden under the ground. Guided walk you through this terrific cavern as you see fabulous sights. A must see! Take the kids

Went with 7 in our party and Catherine was our guide. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. This is a cool place to visit. Loved the history surrounding this place. A little pricey but knowing that you are seeing something so special and off the normal routine it is not so bad. If you have a Martins card this makes... More
