We arrived at Mark Twain's cave later in the day. My husband and I were lucky to have an individual tour of the cave. Our tour guide was a pleasant college student who was very knowledgeable. She showed us where Jesse James once hid out-interesting fact. She also pointed out interesting cave formations and showed us the room where meetings... More

I've been to several very popular National Park Service cave tours and I would rate Mark Twain Caves just as good. I thought it was just a bit pricey but the cave scenery was really great. I would highly recommend this tour.

Our kids love caves. We visit multiple each summer. We did three this summer in Missouri including Mark Twain and Cameron. Since these start at the same location, if you can only do one, I would encourage you to do the Cameron. Because it costs a little more (it is very slight,) it seems to be less crowded. It is...

Decided to do a day trip into Hannibal while visiting family in another town. The cave was great. We have a 17 and 10 year old and both found it very interesting. There is a bit of walking but all of it is smooth and nothing too steep. Some really fun stories to hear and formations to see as we... More

I took my 12 yr old grandson to the Mark Twain Cave. It is a walking tour about 1/2 mile long or so. It was interesting even though I have heard the stories before because my grandson had not. It really isn't bad walking, not alot of ups and downs, no stairs. Just a little narrow at times. I would... More

We went in a large group and were split into two groups. Smart move on their part. We opted to go second and had Frank as tourguide. 70 years old and seemed to still be a kid at heart. He was so informative and knew so many details. He had us laughing through the whole tour. Even made us shudder... More

We are traveling with 2 10 yr olds and a 4 yr old. The mark twain cave was great for everyone but we only took the two older ones in Cameron cave because it was flash light only. Fun fun day!' The hour tour was perfect.

I remember going to the cave as a boy, so I took my kids there. They loved it! Miles of interconnecting passageways (of which you explore a portion) in a fascinating underground world. The guide was entertaining and told us about the cave itself, while interweaving some of the stories from Tom Sawyer. Jesse James hid out here. Stories of... More

We took this tour with a 10 and 16 year old . The price is very high for a one hour tour. Our tour guide just finished his first year of high school. He was knowledgeable.

The price is a bit much but it was still fun to see and hear the stories. Our tour guide was great even if his jokes were extremely cheesey
