For the most part, we had a lot of fun visiting Mark Twain and Cameron caves. The one thing we were most disappointed about was there were no bats in the Cameron Cave. For some reason we were under the impression that we were going...More

Caves were interesting and can easily imagine Jessie James hiding out there and a young Sam Clemons collecting adventures for a future Tom Sawyer. Definitely need a jacket!More

The Mark Twain cave was all I visited.. If you love the Book "Tom Sawyer" this is a must see. The tour is a little over an hour in length and and the location is an easy side trip from Hannibal.

We took the Mark Twain Caverns tour this week. If you are looking for a tour of a pristine cave, this is not for you. This cave was discovered long before limitations were in place, and has been altered and defaced over many years. It...More

Our guide, Jesse, was entertaining but also very well-informed about the cave and its geology. I've visited many caves, and was surprised at how interesting this cave was because it's formation was different from most I've seen. The maze-like passages were so different. Support staff...More

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.
