Would highly recommend for all ages.

Their gift shop was very nice. Nice jewelry.
Sorry we missed those dances and story telling. We'll catch...More

I didnt know there were set times for tours so Id say to go when you want. After you go in there are benches to wait on until there is a tour guide free.
