  • This guided tour was such a great experience. Be sure to find out what time the tours begin or call in, we just happened to walk up right as they were about to start. The tours are about 90 minutes long and you end up walking about 1.5 miles round trip. The caves are considerably cooler than the outside temperature, so I would advise bringing a light jacket. There was only one part where you had to duck down to avoid hitting your head, every other part was very easy to navigate through. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history surrounding the cave and was open to any and all questions we had. Definitely was the best cave I have seen in Texas. Go check it out if you're looking for something fun in the area. If you're more adventurous, they have some tours where they explore more of the cave in smaller and hard to reach places, but you will get wet and dirty (if you're up for that type of thing). Wouldn't recommend it you're claustrophobic.
  • Amazing experience! The caves are awesome and great for pictures. The story behind the cavern is fascinating. I highly recommend this tour! The guide was super knowledgeable and made the tour a lot of fun. Out of the many cavern tours I have been on Longhorn Cavern State Park is one of my favorites!
  • I didn't visit the caverns on the property but met the tour guides inside the gift shop.. The greeters & guides were friendly & informative. I only visited the info office and walked the perimeter of the hiking trail. the area is beautiful with abundant wildlife around. Will put this on my to do list on future Park visits. ⭐⭐⭐
  • Really cool caverns that are worth the 1.5 hour drive from Austin. All of the tour guides seemed like they were having a good time and the caves themselves are really interesting. I forget what they're made of, but the smooth, marbled looking walls towards the end of the tour were just too cool. Make sure to stay a little bit and walk around the surrounding property afterwards. There's a few historic building sites that were pretty cool to explore.
  • Very nice. Staff is helpful and nice. The tour group was a little large so some area's on the tour was a little hard to see what the tour guide was talking about.But still well worth the trip
