I went with my partner and our Neice and Nephew (grades 5 and 4). We all really enjoyed this tour! It gives you so much knowledge and engaged the kids as well. We had fun attempting friction fires too!
We weren't even finished the tour when my nephew asked "When can we come back?".
Amazing! Loved the courses
