There are no steps. A bit pricey, but we had a good tour guide. They will tell you the small, umbrella strollers will fit through the passageways of the cave, but they do not. We had a baby and had to carry her through the cave dragging the folded-up stroller behind us which was not always easy due to the... More

A nice, safe walk for people of any age. It was a little on the pricey side, but it seems all cave tours in Missouri are going this way. The tour guides were very clear and informative. I definitely plan to come back and do a combo tour, and some camping.

What a fun filled tour with more information than "caving". Electric lights to keep your step and to see the walls. Easy for those who arent in shape in these parts (lots of them). Very good tour guide with the info given. Wishing there was a more "advanced" tour. But all in all go.

This is a very interesting cave tour. Lots of history around it. If you are a fan of the Tom Sawyer books, you will enjoy this cave. They will give you lots of history of the town as well. It was a very enjoyable tour and only took about an hour to walk through it.

This is a beautiful cave with plenty to see. A lot of walking for older people or those with little kids. Beautiful structures and good lighting, as well as good footing and rails when necessary. Staff is super friendly and make the tour more fun. The facility is extremely clean.

This campground was what we were looking for-lg sites, trees, close to tourist sites, wifi and friendly staff. We were surprised at the One hour cave tour price, however.

This tour was really entertaining and refreshing. I felt like it helped me connect with the natural history of the earth in a fun way. The tour guide was really professional and was great handling the many kids on the tour with us. The kids on the tour were very curious, and our guide was very patient and understanding with...

We did mark twain cave and it was excellent. Great presentation. Awesome when they turn off all the lights. Really quite slippery in some spots. $18.95 each, less for kids. Can't wait to go back and do a lantern tour of Cameron Cave.

When I read the reviews and thought about the history of this cave, I figured it would be small. It was surprising large. So yes, it is a limestone cave with few spectacular formations but was interesting none-the-less. The guide provided the colorful stories one would expect, and it was interesting to see the various locations described in tales, and... More
