Has anyone here taken their kids on this tour? Mine are 9 and 12...average physical ability and average level of “sense of adventure.” Three hours seems like a long time to be in a cave, and some of the tour reviews almost make it sound spooky. I would hate to get in there and have one of them get scared. But I also hate to miss out on a really cool opportunity.
Amazing tour! If your kids love hiking, climbing, swimming, and have a sense of adventure, they will have a blast!
I have 2 8 year old girls. They said it was one of the best adventures they have ever done (real life history lesson). Though it was bit scary with skulls and definitely adventurous with swimming in the water and bending yourself between the rocks. Most important is that you are comfortable with water. Physically it is not very demanding.
I think the physical parts would be fun for kids, I am not sure they will grasp what went on inside the cave and but they will learn a lot.
Note: there is absolutely no way to see in this cave without light - no one not even a guide could get out without the lights - the headlamps are imperative so if you have a young one prone to messing with such things that would be a caution
I don’t think it was spooky although there were skulls & skeletons. The kids (not ours) in our group seemed to love it. Your kids will need to climb up, over & under rocks. They should enjoy, or at least be ok with, this. Swimming is minimal and the guides have floats.
