We went through the the cave and had a fun time. I don't love tight spaces, but this cave was not terrible, It took about an hour to get through it.

We took our 4 year old twins for an impromptu day trip to Mark Twain Cave, and we all really enjoyed it! With the lighting, and safe route which was mostly very flat, my kids had fun and I had no safety concerns in the cave which made it more relaxing. They especially enjoyed how the guide stopped a few... More

Due to limited time we only did the Mark Twain cavern. The clerk told us that the Cameron Cave was more geological and no lighting so you would be carrying flashlights. Mark Twain cavern was more historical and had lighting so we chose the Mark Twain. Our guide did a great job of telling us history and stories about the... More

Loved the stories that the tour guide would give! It was well worth the price of admission, as it was not only informative but also a very interesting cave! I would go again in a heartbeat!

Drove to Hannibal for the day- this for sure was the absolute highlight! We recently had been to another cave so we chose to do the Cameron Cave- no electricity- just flashlights (they give everyone a flashlight for the tour and you get to keep it). IF you visit on a weekend/busy vacation time I would highly recommend getting there... More

The Mark Twain cave was very interesting and we had an excellent guide explaining everything in the cave even the times Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher got lost. Would you believe that at one time outlaw Jesse James hid out in this cave? He did as he wrote his name on an inside cave wall.

At first, we were going to skip this cave because it is a bit pricey, but we were glad that we decided to go through it! Our tour guide was charming as she told story after story connecting the cave to Tom Sawyer. It made everything clearer from the "post office" where anyone entering the cave signed in (that's how...

Mark Twain was good if it was your first cave tour. Nothing special except the guides were great at their stories of Tom Sawyer... Cameron cave was great. Touring a cave with flash lights is awesome. No electric in cave at all.Don't get left behind. A wild and maze filled cavern

My girls, age 6 & 9, enjoyed the Mark Twain Cave Tour not only because of the cave but also because of the tour guide and how she delightfully she told the tale of Tom & Becky getting lost in the cave. Missouri is home to numerous caves, this location is a nice afternoon trip from central IL or eastern... More

My 3 year old grandson enjoyed the cave but really wanted to see bats which he never did. The photo op is cute but needs to be repainted. Don't go to the restaurant (and I use that term loosely) across the street. It is terrible! The food is all premade and warmed in the microwave. The hot dog was $3.95... More
