We found the Bristol Caverns on line during our drive from Virginia to Kentucky. It wasn't to far from where we were so we headed there. The roads to the caverns are small and go thru a neighborhood but just keep going. We were greeted...More

I had never been to caves or caverns before. This was pretty impressive to me. The tours are led every 20 minuets or so and the young tour guide was very interesting and had lots of local facts that he tied into the tour. The...More

Once we had visited the Bristol Caverns, we now take anyone who comes to visit us from out of town to see the caverns. We have been to other caverns in the immediate area, and in our opinion, these are the best. The cavern guide...More

Arrived early, open at 1000 am during winter season. Great tour, with under ground river and cool formations.

To walk 180 feet deep into the earth and getting to see the stalactites and stalagmites and underground creek is like being on the set of a movie. It is educational and most of all a terrific adventure.

A wonderful visit to Bristol Caverns. The tour guide, I think his name is Charlie, but if it isn't, I apologize. The young man was very good, gave informative information and he didn't rush people through. He was very sensitive to people's ability to move...More

Enjoyed our tour. Easy walking, cave is warm in all weather. Pointed out many interesting areas. Seemed like a short tour, it will be nice when they are able to open up more of the cave.

My wife and I had to kill a damp afternoon. Looked at things to do in Bristol and the Caverns were highly recommended. We arrived at 3pm, paid our $15 and expected a canned guided tour through a limestone cavern. The tour exceeded our expectations....More
