Great Tour by car instead of walking. Tour was an hour. Very interesting. Guides gave plenty of history and events. Nice gift shop on location.

“Very enjoyable”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We went later in the day and my husband and I were the only ones on our tour. Really like the fact that it's a ride through instead of a walk through.

“A Different Way to See a Cave”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Not too far out of Springfield, but it can be a little tricky to find. GPS and signs helped. You ride through the cave in an open trailer behind a jeep. It's great for anyone who doesn't walk well. Your guide stops often to show you features of the cave and give you history of it's past. The cave isn't as extensive as some or have as many features but it's still a wonder. The welcome building is very nice and has a good gift shop. The grounds surrounding the cave are beautifully landscaped.

“wonderful”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Takes about 1 hr. to tour by trolley car. 22.dollar for adults and 14. for children and if you plan on taking the tour again while in the area, you pay just 5. more the day of your ticket purchase and you've got a seasonal pass. Very friendly staff!

“An easy way to see a cave”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Riding through the cave made the tour seem faster than an hour. You learn about the history of the cave and the activities that have gone on there since it was discovered. It's not the prettiest cave in Missouri, but still interesting. Also, the tour wasn't cheap, but what is these days.
