  • Loved it! The cavern was amazing. We had a one hour tour with a guide. She was super nice especially to kids as they had a lot of questions to ask. She also sang a song at the end of the tour which made our experience more enjoyable.We were a group of twenty people, and we had a discount for that. There was a shop where we bought some souvenirs for family and friends.
  • Luray Caverns is the most beautiful and famous cavern in east coast of USA with limestone formations. Although the entry fee is ridiculously high, still the place is worth it. The reflection of the formation on water is awesome. Tour guides are helpful and the ticket includes admission into the Carriage museum nearby.
