About Us:

Since discovery in 1878 by a tinsmith and a local photographer, visitors by the millions have made Luray Caverns the most popular cave in Eastern America and an internationally acclaimed destination.
 
4,000,000 centuries in the making beneath Virginia's storied Shenandoah Valley, this "must see" U.S. Natural Landmark awaits your discovery. One hour tours, from well-lighted, paved walkways lead visitors through cathedral-sized rooms with ceilings 10 stories high. Enormous chambers are filled with towering columns, shimmering draperies and crystal-clear pools.
 
Also in this subterranean wonderland, "Hear Rocks Sing" as you experience the haunting sounds of the world's largest musical instrument, The Great Stalacpipe Organ. Completely unique are the beautiful tones created by this one-of-a-kind instrument, which makes music of concert quality from the surrounding stalactite formations covering more than three acres.

Luray Caverns, for more than 130 years, has been renowned as one of the world's most spectacular natural wonders. A world of magic and majesty, still as marvelously beautiful as described in the newspaper headlines over a century ago.

Beautiful tour of the largest caverns of the East Coast. I liked it. Tour guide was informative and knowledgeable. Gorgeous natural attraction. Gift shop high as expected. Men's restrooms need to be cleaned more frequently. Smelled bad. Overall, a great experience!

WOW! Totally awesome. All of it was so cool and interesting. Our guide was very informative about the caverns. The tour takes about one and half hours. Be prepared to do a lot of walking. They also have a coach and car museum and a maze. You can easily spend a number of hours depending on what you're interested in.

Amazing tour with friendly guides. 1 hour for the whole exploration and it was interesting and fun! Great for families trying to explore and show kids new things. Pricing was a bit expensive but not too bad. Would like to come again to get more pictures. Extraordinary sights and pleasant a surprises around each and every corner

I am giving a star for what Mother of Nature has provided, this place is amazing. However, the service and the tour earn 0 star. I wish I could get my money back. Very disappointed with the service and the tour, poorly planned. The greedy operators of the place allow more people than the actual capacity of the cave get in at once. Imagine being in there with 100s of people around you who are talking, taking pictures, touching the formations, and their crying kids and babies. My husband and I took a short cut and left the cave. I think if they are REALLY planning to save the cave for many more years to come they should stop letting all those visitors to get in at once and touch things, Greedy people. Once we got out, I asked them about this unorganized program and no tour guide. The answer was because of Holiday weekend so the tour guide were stationed around the cave to answer questions or explain things, so no actual tour guide was traveling with the visitors. We paid for the regular admission but did not get the regular tour, greedy people could have sold less tickets to make the visit more pleasant. I even asked one the cavern associates to remind people over and over to not touch the formation. I think the operators of the place are only worry about the amount of profit they can make today and not worry about the future generations. To be honest the tour at the Natural Bridge cavern was way too organized, our tour guide was amazing, he was very knowledgeable about the history of the cave and the formations. We thought since this place was bigger it would be even better but it was not. Such an unpleasant experience.

The walk through the cave system is great. A little more time would be nice, especially for picture taking. The guide does have a script to follow, but there is a lot if information there. The formations are amazing The car museum is full of cars and a several carriages from the early 1900's to the 1940's. A little pricey for the whole family.
