The tour guide was excellent. We were the last group of hte day and he made our trip worthwhile. So much that the next day we did the other cave and asked for him as our tour guide.

The cave was cool, both in temperature and adventure. While there was not a lot of geological specimens the record of all the people who had been their was really a journey into the past. From Jesse James to the thousands of signatures who only live on as frozen time, the cave was worth the tour price. The guide did... More

This was a total surprise to us. After visiting the Mark Twain Home we wanted something else to do and this was truly something completely different. You enter through their visitor center/gift shop, pay your ticket price and wait for the tour to begin. Our guide escorted our group of 15 into the cave complex which surprisingly is a constant...

We toured both caves with grandkids ages 6 to 17 and they all enjoyed the tours. We watched The Adventures of Tom Sawyer the night before we got there so the younger ones would know what Hannibal and the cave was all about and everytime the guide made a reference to Tom Sawyer the kids would say "remember that part...

we've toured a few caves in our vacation life, and thought we'd try this o ne--we were really impressed. the tour guide was funny, if the jokes were a little corny, but the cave itself was quite a sight. It had several areas that branched out from the main path, not all of them were big enough to go through,... More

Much better than we expected. Tour was full of interesting history as well as Tom Sawyer facts. Our tour guide, Jill, did a wonderful job!

We visited the Mark Twain cave only. This is a great place to visit if it is very hot and muggy out. The air temp is 52 degrees year round. Our tour guide was young and on the job for two weeks. She did an admirable job and even had all of the corny jokes down. This tour lasts around... More

My husband and I took the family to Hannibal after my daughter read the Adventures of Tom Sawyer at school. We went to the cave not expecting much (the building is a bit outdated), but had a pleasant surprise! The tour for Mark Twain Cave was about an hour and it was by far the best tour I've ever had....

The tours in the caves were fun. You felt like you stepped back in time with Tom Sawyer & Huck Finn. The area had the time past theme, good restaurants. It would be a good over night trip. You can see pretty much all of it in a day.
