Hi. Tours of the Heritage Centre are self guided, we give you a map and a basic explanation and send you off to explore for yourself. Unfortunately there is no underground experience (for a variety of reasons) but there is much to see, do and interact with aboveground and well as a very good history of the Valley. Hope that helps :-)
