Wonderful gift shop. Everyone was very friendly. The tour guide was very informative and helped us to truly visualize what it was like for Mark and Huck with stories and history. Best cave tour I have ever gone on.

Logan was a great tour guide. I really enjoyed his enthusiasm and punny jokes. The tour is fun, not too long or steep. I have asthma and had no issues. I'd recommend for young or old.

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.
