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 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
