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.

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.

Spectacular !! A visit to VA is not complete if one doesn't visit the Luray Caverns. These are the most extensive and beautiful of all the advertised caves. The caverns are a marvel to look at. The guided tour which is part of the entry fee lasts for about an hour. The walkways are well maintained and hand railings are there as well. The formations in the caves are amazing. Spectacular !!

Amazing natural wonder that is a must to visit for any age group. One of few big caverns that will definitely will make your visit worth. As this is caverns little caution should be exercise if visiting with elderly or with small kids. Tour guides will be guiding you through out the tour and due to the structure they will not be using loud speakers so if you are interested in listening to history and stuff, follow closer to the tour guide.

Very nice tour found in rural Virgina, a bit over an hour drive from DC. Can go with or without a reservation. Lines move quick. One of largest caverns in the world. All tours are guided and last about an hour. Caverns are nice temperature year round. Beautiful natural rocks and water. Gift shop, tree mazes, shops, free parking all right there.

It was an amazing place to visit. It is one of the deepest and largest caves that i have visited so far. Those formations are formed millions of years ago. I also found that to grow one cubic inch it takes 200-300years. Tour guides are amazing and knowledgeable. My guide was Conner who was cool and funny with lot of information. Its worth visiting if you are interested in learning American Natural History.
