Reviewed 6 April 2018

This is a site not to be missed in the Shenandoah Valley Area. The approximately 45 minute tour was informative and filled with spectacular rock formations developing over milenia. Our first tour was poorly narrated and the narration was constantly interrupted by a crying toddler. The staff allowed us to tour a second time at no charge and the tour guide was great! The tour groups averaged 75 which I though was high. Half that number would have allowed better attention to the detail given by the guide. Stay close to the tour guide if you don’t want to miss any narration detail of the Caverns history and notable formations.

We were totally in awe of the wonders of creation at the hands of God.

Nature's masterpiece in stone in Earth's womb. The amazing formations of stalactites and stalagmites are really worth seeing. I enjoyed the trip to this place immensely!

These are great caves! It's actually better to go when there's an overload of people, and they're forced to let people flow freely through the caves.

I HATE the tour they give, because they're pissy about people who stay a little further behind. I'm trying to get a photo with a giant stalagmite without 29424 other people in it! Also, if you see people (especially people's kids) touching or even climbing on the cave walls, please say something! Also, don't let your kid crawl on the cave walls. I saw that last time, we said something to the father.

Pictures do not do this place justice. It can truly only be marveled and admired in person. It is a paved walkway with the deepest point at 160 feet below ground and the total tour distance is 1.25 miles long with an incline and a flight of stairs to ascend upon the exit. It takes about an hour to complete to guided tour. I felt bad for our tour guide who had to deal with a group of foreign tourists who didn't quite understand English. They took selfies where they were asked not to, leaned on and touched some of the stalagmites and even were talking so loud that the poor people in the back could not hear the tour guide. Aside from the naive tourists, the formations are unbelievable. Truly marvelous and worth the 2.5 hour drive from D.C.

Wife and kids enjoyed it.. The natural formations were impressive but I found the car museum had more of my interest.. It’s an impressive collection of some of the earlier modes of leisure transportation and work machines..
