Yes!! The guides are great with kids and they keep them interested. They do several medical demonstrations with the kids as participants. My Daughter went last year with her 4th grade class and they loved it. She loved it so much she went back to see it again this year. The key point they drive home is how advance, at the time, the Spanish medicine was compared with English medicine. They also talk about living conditions, Spanish history and payment/care of hospital staff. The tour is done in English.
