Wow, what a pleasant Experience here! We had set a reservation up weeks in advance, as I wanted to have a RV campsite ready, making a drive down from MN to experience a cave, along with a Family Reunion in the area. About the cave. We were not disappointed. It was an informational, exciting, beautiful, eventful experience with the 2... More

This was the best cave tour we (a group of 6) have ever been on. Marvin was an excellent tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and experienced! We have been on other cave tours, but this cave experience was even more rewarding because of the small size of our group. We especially enjoyed seeing the salamanders, the tadpoles and the... More

We seen the advertisements coming into Jefferson City to see family. If it hadn't been for the billboard I wouldn't have known it was there so great advertising! We went on Saturday and it was raining. Obviously didn't matter since you're indoors. It was a really neat cave. Other than a few low spots it was easy to navigate so... More

We did the tour on a rain day... Interesting to see the soda straws and different underground rock formations and stream. There are concrete pathways suitable for young children and wheelchairs. There are some tight spots (low clearance) for those of us 6 ft or taller but not that many, just walk forward and it opens up again. Little gift... More

It was a rainy day at the lake & we wanted to get out. It was interesting. I wouldn't take small children but there were several on our tour who cried and screamed the whole time.

Have been to several Missouri caves. Jacobs was a real nice surprise. Very reasonable in price. Small tour groups. Up close experience with the guide who knew a lot about the geology and the history of the cave. Folksy but informative. Our grandsons loved it. Not mentioning names but a lot more up close and personal than some of the... More

The size of this cave is amazing! And the formations were quite impressive as well. This was a nice outing for me and my daughters as we were spending a couple days in central MO.
