Fantastic. An aerial tram ride, walks through amazingly beautiful caverns well lit and maintained walkways, a train ride and a boat ride! You will have to check your camera or phone. No photos allowed in the caverns. Very clean bathrooms. Much better than Byblos.

Hi sorry for the delay. I would say no problem for kids. There are rails and steps all throughout the cave.
