Had no idea this cave was so elaborate. Simply amazing view. It was so neat to recreate my youth by visiting the locations that inspired one of my favorite childhood authors. My kids absolutely loved it too, they were so entertained that I hardly knew they were there which is quite a feat!

This cave is pretty easy to navigate. A family on our tour even had a stroller. Our tour guide did a super job and funny with his cheesey jokes.

This is a fun tour. The cave is easy to maneuver and our tour guide was very enthusiastic. If you liked the Tom Sawyer story, then I would highly recommend this tour.

Loved the Mark Twain Cave Tour. Our guide was very funny and animates. He knew his stuff and shared a lot of anecdotes well. His knowledge of the Tom Sawyer story and his delivery was a joy.

The Cave is short and limited geological highlights. Some cute stories relating to Mark Twain and others. Probably the best cave for small children or elderly. It is not very long for short attention spans and accessible. But $16.00 each. OUCH. Looked like the cave was far more extensive than the short tour. It only took about a 30min. But... More

We did both the Mark Twain and Cameron Cave. It seems not too many people attempt the Cameron Cave.The Cameron Cave tour is conducted by flashlight only so you get a better sense experience of what caves are like without the convenience of lighting. Their are other places to visit- a wine shop being one of them. Both caves are... More

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
