Large group in an auditorium to watch sheep sheering. The presenter and sheerer was excellent. He put on a great show. Great for kids and adults. Somewhat educational, but more entertaining than educational. Volunteers participate in cow milking.More

Tour is bout an hour too. And there is roughly a 20 mins gap between show and tour. So all up I suggest that you allow 3 hours at Agrodome for photo and souvenirs shopping
