This is the second time I have visited Mark Twain Cave...this time with my kids. The tour itself is about an hours long. Starts with a short video and then you enter the cave where your picture is taken...that you, of course, can purchase later. You get to see many parts of the cave and our guide was very interesting... More

this was fun going throw the cave. the guide we had was real good. there is lights through out and different things are pointed from the book. you even get to see where jesse james hid out. it's a nice little walk there is a few tights spots to walk through but it's open above and below so not scary.

I am both claustraphobic and have trouble climbing, but did the Mark Twain Cave and was glad that I did. Our guide was amusing and knowledgable and the cave is lighted (except when he turned out the light) and easy to walk. We did not visit Cameron Cave because it is for a more adventurous crowd!

Since we were the only people on this tour my wife and I really enjoyed the private tour. The guide, Alex, was very knowledgeable both about caves in general and the history of this cave specifically. He took the time to point out several of the geological features of the cave and talk about the history of the cave and... More

Not worth the price of the admission . Our guide talked about Tom Sawyer of course, but that is pure fiction. Nothing of real historical importance unless you count the fact that Mark Twain played here as a child or that Jesse James may have scrawled his name on a walk (which we were not allowed to see ).

We had a great time exploring the mark twain cave. Lots of corny jokes, historical facts, and ties into the Mark Twain aspects. Bonus is the 52 degree environment even when it is hot and humid outside. *props to this establishment for allowing baby wearing. I would hate to maneuver a stroller through some of the tighter spots.

We had a great time, the stories that the guide told were very interesting but seemed kinda rehearsed but still Definitely something that you should do while in town.

You can just picture Tom and Becky lost in this place. This classic limestone cave is easy to negotiate and you have a knowledgeable guide with interesting stories to lead you through. Pretty touristy, but if you're a tourist, whatever! Of all the attractions here in Mark Twain land, this place does the best job of bringing his novels to... More

A bit over priced at $19 per adult but not horrible. Interesting facts and history are given on the hour tour. Great for kids who can walk on their own for an hour. It's 52 degrees in the car year around so bring a jacket.
