The volunteers were very informative and entertaining.
We enjoyed this 1hr pit stop.

Can be fun. Involves a bit of walking and if the sun is out on a day the trades aren't blowing a bit, can be very warm. Moves at a good pace and there are things kids can do along the way. If the 7 year old gets bored easily, may just do that. The 10 year old will have a ball.
