Neat place
Jun 2021 • Couples
This was the 1st time we have ever been to the Mark Twain cave. It was a little tight squeeze at certain points and it was just long enough.. It was a wonderful place and you could just imagine teenagers from old times roaming the "halls" I really enjoyed seeing Samuel Clemens signature on the wall and wish we could have seen Jesse James.

Amazing customer service!!
Jun 2021 • Family
Kimberly was an amazing tour guide! She was so knowledgeable and pointed out great things I wouldn't have otherwise seen! It was just 2 of us on the tour, then when a family member was feeling claustrophobic, she was kind enought to walk them back to the front to make sure they got out okay and still put on a great tour for myself. She answered all of my questions and made me feel like a friend rather than a tourist. Then after, our car had died and she was so kind enough to give us a jump. She went above and beyond for us! Thank you Kimberly!!

Do both caves if you can
May 2021 • Couples
We did both cave tours. The Mark Twain cave was fun. It was a full tour and had some loud talkers that made it hard to hear the guide at times. She tried, but it made it hard for those around them. We were the only two on the Cameron tour and we loved it!!!!! Touring by flashlight was so much fun. Be sure to do both tours. There is a discount for both.

Great for the family

Interesting and fun place for the whole family. Great people running it, you can tell they care about the preservation of the place. Some places can get narrow.

Great Cave, Poor Tour Guide
May 2021
The cave itself is great. It was nice to see Samuel Clemens. However, there were too many people in the tour. If you are towards the end of the group, you can't hear the tour guide.

I guess kids might have enjoyed the non stop puns that we did hear, but I would rather have been able to hear and learn about the history of the cave.

Best Part of Hannibal Trip!
May 2021
Our family of 4 took both cave tours and both were absolutely amazing! The tour guides were friendly and helpful, especially Bernie on the Cameron Cave Tour. We learned not only about the geologic history and features of the cave, but the history of people exploring and mapping them and ultimately opening them up for tours. It's clear the people who work here love and care for these precious treasures. The Cameron Cave tour includes flashlights which our kids absolutely loved! This was our favorite part of our trip to Hannibal.

Not the best "cavern" but a very interesting tour.

Speleologists will not marvel at the stalactites and flowstone, because there aren't any.
Mark Twain fans will be impressed and delighted.
Stories, some probably true, some probably not, but entertaining just the same.
Worth seeing.

Fun time
Mar 2021 • Family
This cave has a ton of history. The tour guide did a fantastic job explaining the history behind the cave while keeping it entertaining. There are fairly narrow passages, but i was able to fit a small stroller (borrowed from the place I purchased the tickets). It takes about an hour to get through and I think it is close to a mile of walking.
