Informative, we enjoyed the tour and learning the area history. However the cost was rather high for a family to afford. Coupons found in town are restricted and did not help

Words can't really describe the cave experience. It was awesome--especially for our kids! So much history and beauty. Your kids will love it. Nice, easy hiking and fun times. Evan (aka Bob!) was a great tour guide too!

This cave might be a problem for someone with some claustrophobia. But for others it can be lots of fun.

Interesting bit of history and folk lore. Guide was great, and tried to make it fun but the jokes are pretty cheesy. It was still very interesting and a good time.

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.
