We've toured a few different caves. The trails are semi-narrow and very easily passable. This tour was different than others I have been on in that the tour guide encouraged us to touch and feel different parts of the rock. There is even a living...More

Why would anyone go to Hannibal as a tourist and not go there? Be sure to wear a light jacket as the cave stays at 55 degrees all year long. Stay close to the tour guide or you will never hear any of her interesting...More

We did Cameron cave and really liked it. This is not for everyone as there is no lighting and you bring flashlights to light the way. It is also very physical. Enjoyed the tour.

For history, this is an important cave. People nice, knowledgeable, however this cave has been severely abused, graffiti everywhere, no restrictions on touching the sides, a death sentence for this cave. For a novice cave visitor....all caves are not like this one. Most are cared...More

If the summer sun is unbearable or if you are just curious and a bit of an explorer, come in to these two caves. Cameron cave is a bit more expensive, but definately worth it. Mark Twain cave is a bit commercial, but still very...More

The grandkids loved the tour of the Mark Twain Cave. We all found it very interesting and a nice way to cool down on a very hot day!

At the Mark Twain Cave, you can also attend the show "Mark Twain "Live" (obviously an actor), which is quite entertaining; prices are $15 for adults and $7.50 for children (8-12). Adults get a $5.00 discount if you sign up... 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.
