I visited Luray Caverns a lot as a child, so I decided to bring my kids during the long weekend. The caverns were as magical as I remember and my kids loved it. My tour guide, Kelsey, was amazing. She carried herself very well and...More

Initially, I didn’t expect much, but, man, I was in awe. The limestone formations are truly amazing. There were children with us and they were delighted. The trails were well cared for, illumination highlighted all the environment with adequate levels, and the guide was friendly...More

Really cool cavern complex. Interesting history and really cool stalagtite formations. The Dream Lake was beautiful and the stalagpipe organ was really cool. Plus they drain the wishing well every year and give it all to medical research which is awesome.

This place is worth visiting at least once. You will most likely walk for about 1 hour inside. The temperature is a little cooler and be sure to ear comfortable shoes. There are shops right outside and activities for the entire family family. You can...More

Let's get right to the basics, we went the first day of February and it was really cold outside. We wore coats into the caverns. We carried coats the last half of the tour - should have left them in the car. Next, it's caverns,...More

Buried under the mountains is this "gold" mine of mother nature. The initial decent is rather long, make sure you have good walking shoes and a sweatshirt or light coat as the air gets cooler the deeper you go. The tour guide was especially knowledgeable...More
