Took two of our grandchildren to the cave for their first visit. They really enjoyed the tour and all the stories the guide told. The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining and could answer all of our questions.

We love bringing kids through the cave, it's fun getting to see the adventures and stories of Tom Sawyer through their eyes!

The cave exceeded my expectations by a factor of ten. Both adults and kids will love the amazing tour. The cave is larger, grander (and taller too!) than most visitors expect.

Our tour guide Jorden, was so sweet and was definitely knowledgeable about the history of the cave. This tour is definitely worth your time especially if you're a history buff.

I would think so but we only did the Mark Twain cave. If you like to see caves that have bats in them then you would need to do the other cave tour as the Twain cave does not have them.
