  • Awesome! Would highly recommend it. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us great information. We have visited a few other caves in the area and this was a favorite.

  • Def for little kids. I picked this one because of the waterfall. It no longer exists because of a neighboring subdivision whose wells have dried up the waterfall. So I think they shouldn’t be...

  • These are fairly "young" caverns geologically speaking, so the formations are not as extensive as some of the older caverns in the area. Our tour guide was very well informed and provided a great narrative during the tour. We enjoyed our tour as there were only 4 others with us some we could take our time and examine the caverns in some detail. The guide answered all our questions without hesitation. A very enjoyable and informative experience.
  • A Groupon coupon put this on our radar and we are so glad it did! The caverns were great. Our guide was informative and lots of fun stories to share. We enjoyed seeing the signature wall from the Civil War soldiers and hearing about the dance parties down in the large cavern. The guide was especially good with the little fella' nervous about the lights being turned off. Bring a picnic and make a day of it. A great way to reinforce geology school lessons or simply enjoy a unique date:
  • I loved visiting this location on the rainy day that I was in Front Royal. It was about an hour tour but the group can linger if you need more time. A great summer activity as it is much colder underground. Home to some incredibly rare sea urchin-like formations only going found in a few locations in the world. The tour guide was funny, informative, helpful, and kind. The gift shop has really cute dishes and rocks and really nice items that were reasonably priced. I’d come again just to see the colored lights in the caves again.
  • Beautiful caverns and such a knowledgeable tour guide! It was an amazing experience and we really enjoyed it. The colored lights really highlight the natural beauty
  • Caverns were beautiful! William was our guide and he did amazing! He answered all questions and made the tour fun. Will definitely visit again.
