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".

The cave was fun, not really scary or strenuous at all, lots of old graffiti. The tour guide was animated - try to be at the head of the tour group/single file line in the cave if you have hearing issues. Very interesting was the entrance of the cave is accessed thru the gift shop. If you buy a Mark... More

Interesting but not spectacular. It will be good for kids that have read 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer".

We were the first people there and waited in the parking lot until they opened at 10. It was just us and another couple. When we walked in we got an unfriendly greeting from the lady at the counter who sold us our tickets. Not sure what her problem was. There were only 4 people in the whole place. Had... More

We so enjoyed out visit to the cave. ...a tour worth taking. There's also a gift shop there that turned out to be a decent place to buy fudge.

The cave is just a short drive from downtown Hannibal and is worth the visit. As other reviewers have said, don't expect a bunch of stalagmites and stalactites; the real attraction is the history of the cave and the stories that your tour guide will tell (Jordan was great!). Make sure to wear good walking shoes. While the path within... More
