First time at these caves, ok not the best in the world but we'll worth a visit, takes about 1hr to go round, the guide was very informative and light-hearted when pointing out things, some interesting things for children to do there .

We've visited a few show caves and this was ok but have been to better ones. Tour guide was good but very busy had to spend a lot of time telling the stragglers to keep up.

There is no room for a Pram or buggy, however in a harness with control you would. Just be aware that there are small passages with people walking around. Regards Steve
