  • 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 an...  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 deep...  more »

  • Great Place and a Must visit. I love nature and this was a missing experience of my life. I am glad I visited and saw the nature at its best. Loved the place. They have maintained it as well. Guide was also good. But due to crowd he was moving very fast, was problem in following him. I had visited in November.
  • It was very nice. Our tour guide was engaged and funny. The path through the cave made it a very pleasant tour. One of tour members sang in the room with good acoustics, and she was very talented! I did find it sorta pricey. It was almost $100 for a family of 4 with one child. I wouldn't take the tour a second time because of the price. The toy and car museums were a nice freebie, but I still found the cost a little steep.
  • Wow! The most amazing cavern I've ever visited. The tour lasted about one hour and twenty five minutes, just about a mile and a quarter long. Costs $28, well worth the price. The guide was informative and easily heard. My favorite part was the lake, but there are so many amazing things to see.
  • Marvel of nature. I have been to Seneca caverns too and Luray is way bigger than Seneca. The group that toured with us was a bit big though and because of incoming crowds, it was a bit hard keeping up with the guide and getting pics. The place has a lot of other attractions too and all required facilities. The cavern in itself is really beautiful and some parts just blow you away. A must visit of you are in the area, especially for people who have never seen any other place like this before. Skyline drive entrance is close by from here. The tour guide was informative and friendly. No complaints there. Can't recall her name though.
  • Absolutely LOVE coming here. I'm so obsessed with the wishing well. Your guides are very informative and friendly. My sister and I visited on Saturday so I wanted to share one little experience. While I understand we're all in a tight spot down in the caverns when we stop to learn about the area we're in, we DO have enough room to where you don't have to stand up my ass. Personal boundaries. Please respect them.
