These caves are unique as they don't have tons of steps and they don't have huge rooms. The caves are narrow passageways, maze like. Very cool, and mostly dry. You won't see much stalagmites or stalactites, but the history and atmosphere were really good. The...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.
