I did this tour with my wife and two daughters (17 and 14) and we all really enjoyed it. The audio tour enriched the visit and helped to bring everything we were seeing to life. Without it, it would have felt like we were just wandering around.

You have to visit with a guide. We used the audio guide with 3D headsets. The museum attached to the archaeological site is superb.
