  • These amazing caverns are NOT WORTH $32/person. Why do they cost much? Is it wrong to expect a guided tour or at least Luray Caverns workers around who I can ask questions to for this cost? With number of people in that place in a single hour on the weekend, they've got to be able to afford new speakers for the organ (why is it so noisy? No-one around for me to ask). Other than printing a pamphlet for each visitor, I don't understand where the $32 goes. Is maintenance crazy expensive or something? If so, that is interesting and I wish there was someone who worked there who could explain. At this cost, and with the traffic there in a single weekend, I expect Luray to be giving out scholarships to future geologists or something. They are gorgeous and worth seeing, and I am disappointed in the cost without any justification or explanation. Shout out to the 1 worker dude we did meet in the caverns who knew all about them and who answered a few of our questions. Instead of paying him to give tours, they had him picking up trash. What a waste of his knowledge and kindness.
  • Wonderment, excitement, and the unknown all come together in a truly unique experience. Take a journey deep into the earth to see how our great planet and these massive cave systems were formed. With beautiful sounds and sights, this is an experience like no other. So much to do in and around the Caverns makes this a day trip to remember! Visit the amazing gift shop and grab a bite to eat. This is a must do for anyone traveling through Virginia!
