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.

It was so good to see that great place I had been imagining while reading Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Young again.

We've been to caves in other parts of the country, this one is different. It was an easy walk, but recommend wearing comfortable shoes. I liked the tour guide - a little cheesy humor but he seemed knowledgeable the cave itself and the relationship it...More

Was a little boring for the price they charged. The cave itself is mostly limestone. The only attraction is the history and link to Mark Twain story.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.
