We visited the Mark Twain cave. This very interesting and the relation to the author makes it even better. The tour took about an hour including a short movie. It gets pretty tight in the cave so if you don’t like small spaces stay out! The path is an easy walk but wear good walking shoes. Our guide was knowledgeable and told many jokes. My only complaint was that she was going too fast and we did not have enough time to enjoy the different parts of the cave.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We appreciate the suggestion, it is always difficult when there are so many cool things to see. We could spend a couple days in there I am sure and still want to go back in for more. We will do our best to make sure that it doesn't feel rushed in the future. We hope to see you out here again, maybe you would like to see Cameron Cave next time! It is also right here on location.

Easy. Interesting. Energetic guide. 100 Million year old cave, that was the first formally tourable cave in the Missouri. Incredible history in the town that pays tribute to everything Mark Twain.

Caves are always a favorite to check out when we travel. Em was our tour guide and provided interesting historical references. I cannot quite imagine venturing far inside this dark cave without the lights that there are today but I am sure it was exciting. Today we have the vantage of a lighted path- no crawling and no super steep inclines - just right for me and my group. Not a lot of formations but more of the story - Jesse James used the cave as a hide-out and of course the Mark Twain stories.
