This was a lovely, informative tour for the whole family. Geological and civil war history. We were on the tour for about 70 min. Lots of walking, so stairs. A bit of exercise and learning while you are on family vacation.

It's beautiful and non-commercialized with a grand ballroom for dancing. See if you can find the fried egg formation in a comfortable 54 degree cave.

Awesome place! Staff very friendly and informative. Price to get in very good. 70 minute tour, wished it could have been longer but they like to take one group at a time and take their time explaining things. A must see!!

A surprise find during our visit to Virginia. Easy to get to, reasonably priced and a great tour. Try this for a break from the wineries, breweries and history tours.

Awesome tour. The temperature was great for me. The skinny girls found it to be cold. About 1.5 mile round trip.

I had no idea what to expect. Our guide was Tyler who is entering his senior year in high school. He was a wonderful and very mature guide for a 17 year old. The cavern was incredible with a multitude of geological formations. Tyler knew...More
