We were staying at Inks Lake for the week and had a bad weather day, so we decided to go to Longhorn Caverns, just for something to do. Our tour guide, Randy, was very knowledgeable about the cave...

We had the best tour of a cavern with our tour guide Jim. He was very knowledgeable and funny! There was a rock that looks like Mufasa and a viking ship. We also walked the trails.

What a fun adventure that exceeded expectations. I’m not sure exactly what we were in for but the beauty of this amazing cave, the adventure of exploring it, our knowledgeable guide were all fantastic. Plus you beat the Texas heat. I wish we had had a camera below do if you have a go pro then definitely bring it! This isn’t for the faint of heart when it comes to tight spaces but our guide expertly took us through formations you just never would expect to experience. Definitely wear long pants and shoes you don’t care about. Bring a towel and a change of clothes. Be prepared to get dirty and experience something uniquely fun and adventuresome.
What a great treasure in the Texas Hill Country! The caverns are awe-inspiring. The park system has left this gem in its natural state as much as possible. The lighting is good - it shows off the features of the cavern without while not being over-done and losing its natural appeal. The park personnel - to a person - were helpful, knowledgeable and very pleasant to work with. I can't wait to bring my little stepson for a visit! This is a real family opportunity!
