The cave was cool inside maybe 54 degrees, a lot of beauty to see the walkways were great it wasn't wet inside like most caves, the tour guides are great, the history was told in a tricky manner, and the size of the Cave is remarkable, wait until you see the cave to judge for yourself, if you're in Hannibal...

Our grandsons, ages 6 and 5 enjoyed the cave more than I thought they would. Our guide was terrific. I had been there about 30 years ago, it was about the same..still cute and quaint.

We took our two grandsons - 6 and 8 - to the Mark Twain Cave - excellent - a great guide and very knowledgable. Before we went to Hannibel - we all watched the original Tom Sawyer movie and this was great -as the guide related to Tom and Becky throughout the tour which really amazed the boys. Recommend this...

Fascinating journey into a cave that is realistic and natural. The basis for 5 of Mark Twain's books, the cave is a fascinating experience. It is only little under an hour. The walkway might be claustrophobic for some. Our guide provided both literary and historical information about areas of the cave. It is not strenuous but there is a definite... More

Our kids loved the stores that the guide told about Tom, Becky and Injun Joe. We had to wait 1/2 until the next tour but there is a gift shop and winery to browse through. The walk is pretty flat and you have to watch your head. There are a lot of signatures in the cave from several years ago.... More

This cave was different than others I have visited with less formations however it was much easier to walk around pretty much level. The guide told some very good stories and jokes. Grandaughter very happy with it.

Can't go in if you don't like small dark places. The caves were the best. There is lots of history and good stories to learn, while enjoying the coolness of the caves!

We camped one night in a full hook-up site at the Mark Twain campground near Hannibal, MO and couldn't wait to pull out the next morning. The cave tour is great, but the campground is rundown, dirty and unkempt. The sewer system for the camper hook up leaked noxious sewer gas because the connections were cracked. Due to the odor,...

Our tour guide Bethany was outstanding! She knew the history incredibly well and had interesting details about the various stops to share with us. It was an easy walking tour that my husband and I enjoyed very much!
