How cool! Took a break from my radio tour to visit this most historic cave. Great staff tour guide etc. It's a must! Bring a jacket.

As with other cave adventures I've been on, I was pleased, however, I was only disappointed that we didn't go further back into the caves. Nonetheless, the tour guide was knowledgeable of the history of the cave, very interesting.

The cave is interesting not so much for its beauty as for its history. The cave doesn’t have the formations normally found in many caves, but it is nice to see this type of cave. The tour guide did an excellent job of telling you...More

We were so glad we took time to visit Mark Twain Cave. We are in our mid-60s and enjoyed this very much. It was easy walking and led by a great tour guide. If in area, don't miss this!!!

This is just about Mark Twain cave. There are no large rooms, just narrow passage ways to traverse. This is a guided tour and though the guide had a microphone, because the passages were narrow we were stung out and you could not hear her...More

We are so sorry to hear that you weren't able to enjoy the full experience! Summers at the Mark Twain Cave are usually pretty busy. The fall and winter is often a great time to visit as the tours are always much smaller. Usually morning...More

We had never seen a dry cave before. Guide led tour was informative. Cave was referenced in Mark Twain books. Jessie James had been there. It was a hour tour. An easy walk, mostly flat. I have sciatica & made it with minimal discomfort. Wouldn't...More

Two school age children play Tom and Becky and that is the only redeeming quality of the cave. Beauty and cave formations are very much lacking. Overpriced. Nice winery on site!!More

The Mark Twain Cave could be considered a unique cave in the fact that it isn't as cavernous as some caves are expected to be. It is a maze cave and has a network of around 260 passageways. Also, our cave is heavily connected to...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.
