The cave was very interesting and easy to navigate. The tour guide was entertaining, but there were a few people who talked and spoiled it. I would recommend this tour if you are interested in the Tom Sawyer story and like caves.

If you can't do both, just do the Mark Twain Cave. It is a little spendy, but worth every dollar. It gets pretty chilly in the cave so bring a sweater. Perfect place to go on those hot summer days in Hannibal. The guides are...More

Was neat to take the kids to see the cave, but there favorite park was the souvenir shop. They had a fun story to go along with the tour as well.

Brought Tom Sawyer to life. More than a book, touring the cave and the guides commentary brought fictional characters alive. Interesting caverns on the edge of Hannibal. We were fortunate to have a small tour group. We were the last tour of the day. Just...More

This was such a cool experience, our tour guide Jessica was incredibly knowledgeable and really made the tour special. This was probably our favorite part of Hannibal MO. Pro tip: the smaller tours are the best ones!!

We love having tours for both caves, it's really neat to have one of Missouri's oldest AND newest show caves! We are so happy you were able to experience both of them!

We visited the cave since we were at the campground next door. The cave is an easy walk and the tour was nicely done. The interior of the cave is not as interesting as others I've visited and it was a bit pricey. Overall a...More

At the Mark Twain Cave, you can also attend the show "Mark Twain "Live" (obviously an actor), which is quite entertaining; prices are $15 for adults and $7.50 for children (8-12). Adults get a $5.00 discount if you sign up... 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.
