Shenandoah Valley Travel Information
We visited the Shenandoah Caverns on a Friday. This was the best liked. It has an elevator and the groups are smaller. The guide stopped at certain main points of interest, as well as explaining the rest as we walked along. He paused for questions and pictures. We went at a slower pace and were not rushed. The highlights were the "Bacon Slabs", the rainbow lights and the glistening rocks. I wish there had been more gift shops and maybe a restaurant or a food court.
We visited Luray Caverns on a Monday. There are too many people to a group, and too many groups touring at one time.You can actually hear the other guides talking. There is no elevator, the steps are very, very steep. The walk ways are paved with brick and don't look authentic. We were rushed. They only stop at certain points of interest, but they don't explain anything else along the way. Workmen were walking around during the tours. The "organ" was a big disappointment. We waited the whole tour to see the "scrambled eggs", very disappointing. On the up side---the reflective pools and the ceilings were beautiful. The shopping and food courts were great.
