If you enjoy history and caves then worth it. Cost is a bit high. Two people with taxes is over $41. Length of tour is roughly an hour. Tour includes Jesse James' signature but you only get to see a picture of it upon exiting the cave. Jesse James apparently hid in the cave at some point in time and... More

This cave tour was pretty fun. Cave is a dry cave so the are only a few cave formations such as flow stone and soda straws. Our guide was Alex and he gave us a very entertaining your of the cave. Pointed out hybernating bars asking the way. A little pricey

If you are into caves, Cameron Cave you need to see. Mark Twain Cave is historic and the guide is good. You need to read the tales of Tom and Becky to enjoy this cave. Pricey for a large family.

I had a great experience, the atmosphere was amazing, as was the tour but there were a few very downplays: In the opening video before you enter the cave, it states that the cave is "Millions" of years old. (There is absolutely no proof of that!) Also the Ticket prices are plain Highway Robbery! I mean, $19 Dollars for an... More

It a fun and beautiful cave experience with a knowledgeable guide. Make sure you take a jacket it is naturally cool inside. The tour takes about an hour but you do not have to be in tip top physical condition to be able to enjoy it.

The cave was wonderfully fantastic. The guide was very informative and made hilarious puns. The tour took about an hour, and their gift shop was pretty neat. This tour is most definitely family friendly - to my knowledge there isn't an age restriction, except maybe for kids who need strollers. It is also "fluffy friendly".
