Our tour group of 11 was led by two guides. One was in training. Both were well versed on the caverns. The kids in our group were impressed by the guides and the caverns. The hike is very easy and for all ages.

Stopped here for something different to do in my area. Our tour guide was nice and very knowledgeable and the cave was cool to see. She asked often if we had any questions, which was appreciated. It's definitely worth seeing.

This cave tour is worth the time and nominal cost, and while it was only my wife and I this time, it would certainly be a fun outing for the whole family.

Not really, you have to duck a little in two or three spots as you walk by but for the most part it's open with no problem.
