We went to the Cathedral cave and absolutely loved it. A very informed guided tour that went for about an hour. Such a gorgeous cave that also has glow worms. Definitely add this to your list of places to visit.

It all depends. You need to go up and down. It will not be easy to use the trolley. Also, some places are dark and kids may be scared.
