I don't think it gets any better then this cavern on the east coast. Admission is rather inexpenisve for guided tour and a few other attractions are included. Lots to look at and be in awe. Highly recommed!

Well run, affordable. One price ticket admits one to the caverns, the car museum, the toy museum, and the history museum and grounds. It's a wonderful deal.

Great for the family. You must be able to walk 1.25 miles and do stairs. It was really cool. Off my bucket list, but a must see

Luray Caverns is a great destination. Yes, it's been commercialized, but the owners haven't dyed the formations different colors, or put in dwarves, or anything silly like that. Once you're down a flight of stairs, your guide leads you through the various tunnels and formations,...More

Just went to Luray Caverns which was pretty cool. The caverns are more built up than a lot of others I’ve been to so all the walkways are paved with brick pavers. There are some steep inclines but otherwise it’s a pretty mild tour. The...More

Beautiful! Walking tour through the caverns takes about 1 1/2 hrs. You take stairs down, but upon leaving the girl told us they are opening a new section with no stairs sometime this spring. Plenty of time for pictures and family friendly. Was worth admission,...More

We were staying at Massanutten Resort, so we had a 50% off discount to purchase a ticket to tour Luray Caverns. They were lived up to the reviews posted on Trip Advisor. The tour guide made the tour very interesting and kept it moving along....More

There is a lot of walking, you go down steps to get in the cavern and steps out of the cavern.
