We booked this for our 5 Year old and he loved it. Even us parents enjoyed taking in the views and the information from the tour guide. It was really fun and I highly recommend. Also get there ahead of your booking to be sure you can get a seat at the top. I don't know how many bookings they have per bus tour but i think most of us on the day were able to all be seated upstairs.
