Only had time for Mark Twain cave but very interesting. Wish you could see a lot more of it. Really wanted to explore more of the tunnels.

Not impressed with the guy selling tickets (unfriendly) or the guide (not knowledgeable) but it was a cool cave. Tickets around $20 for adults and $10 for kids. I thought that was pricey but these tours are packed.

Was neat to take the kids to see the cave, but there favorite park was the souvenir shop. They had a fun story to go along with the tour as well.

The cave is a natural “labyrinth of crooked aisles” that “run into each other and out again and lead to nowhere,” as Mark Twain described the cave in his perhaps most famous book, “Tom Sawyer.” I can attest to the truth of this statement, even...More
