Luray Caverns reviews
The foot traffic needs to be decreased if the integrity of the caves is to be put intact. Boring place.

This was one of the most beautiful caves I've ever visited. It is a self-guided walk-through that needs no explanation. There are so many formations to see.

I heard from someone working at the front royal visitor's center that Luray caverns was the best in the area. It was a good 45 minute drive but it definitely did not disappoint! It was beautiful!! We went on a Monday evening and it was empty. They took our photos at the entrance and ended up being really cute souvenirs. The caverns themselves were really big. We took our time and read through all 19 stops on the tour (they had self guided tours with a brochure) I liked that we were able to go at our own pace and be able to take photos/ videos without other people photo bombing. There were pretty little lakes and huge formations. Great trip!
This cavern is truly one of the.most spectacular natural wonders I have seen in my life. The history of how this cave was found by accident about 150 years ago is amazing. The tour of the cavern was well planned and thought out and responsibly preserved. The tour takes about an hour to walk and a very good camera is highly recommended. I suggest visiting during the off peak season so that you feel rushed through the cave. There is a small Cafe, a gift shop and a few other shops. I highly recommend this park to those who enjoy nature and for those who want to experience a once in a lifetime thrill. Pictures do not do this cave justice. It must seen in person to appreciate the beauty and amazement of this place.
Visited on a Thursday afternoon and it was decently crowded. My family of 3 was able to walk through the caverns in about an hour and it was spectacular. It is self-guided but you can pay for a guided tour. You are given a pamphlet with information as you walk through the caverns. Although it is definitely a tourist-y spot, I highly recommend checking this incredible place out as it is one of the great wonders of the east coast!
Went at the end of our spring break and it was really fun! It’s about 60-90 min to walk all the way through, depending on how long you stop for photos or listen to the organ. Many amazing sights and some parts of the caves are 7 million years old! Very interesting history and would recommend grabbing info pamphlet before you go through so you can follow along what each item is (they’re numbered). Tickets also include free admission to the toy museum and train/car museum next door. Really neat to see more historic items.
Such a beautiful place!! They give you an informational pamphlet before you walk in and it let's you know that there's numbered markers along the way that coincidence with what you're supposed to read. It's not only beautiful, but you get to learn some cool facts about the caverns too! I also loved the lighting, it definitely makes you want to stop and take pictures when you get to each marker. My family and I had a wonderful time.
