The Mark Twain Cave was an interesting and fun cave tour. I wasn't expecting much and the tour was okay. There were lots of names written on the cave walls from prior two centuries, so that was interesting, but, as far as caves tours go, this one was just okay. If you're passing through, worth going in.

I have not done official tours of many caves, but this was a pretty good one. The tour guide was very knowledgeable of the subject matter and was able to answer the questions I heard asked of him, but his jokes were all puns which for me became a bit much. Overall I wish the tour was longer.

Went here to try some wines but then saw the caves! We didn't do the Mark Twain cave but the other cave. It ended up being just two of us with the tour guide. The tour guide was fantastic and the cave was amazing! There were great small passages to pass through. Was such a fun experience. Make sure you... More

As far as dry caves go this one is a good one. I just enjoy the live ones better. We took photos around the cave on our tour and posted the one place where there is water in the cave. Great way to spend and hour!

Nice place, gift shop was reasonably priced, it has a Hyvee resturant and a winery. The guide was good, but our group was a little slower, and it order to keep it moving, he skipped a few features of the cave.

I grew up in Hannibal area and always love going to the old cave I plan on returning with my grandkids to go to Cameron Cave when I have kids a little older. This cave requires use of lanterns

Josie was a great tour guide, we really enjoyed this tour! We camped at the campground, so this made for a fun afternoon without having to drive.

The cave is a nice feature, even though greatly over priced in my opinion. $20 for anybody over 12 is a bit much. It's removed itself from being a family attraction. The tour guides are generally well versed in local history and some are good story tellers, other just go through the motions. If you haven't ever been, you should... More
