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".

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".
