Lovey place to visit and a must see if your in or around Tulum, especially considering it only costs 70 pesos to get in. The gardens around the ruins are very well maintained and offer a lovely backdrop to the old buildings and ruins.

Hi keep in mind that a drive from Cancun to Tulum can take up to 2 hours. Said that once you get to the entrance of the ruins I would probably hire a tour guide, considered the size of the site the tour won't go for longer than 60 minutes.
All track are easy to walk on.
Regarding your kids depends on how patient they are on a 2h drive, I think they'll have fun once inside the ruins as the might spot iguanas.
I know private transfers can charge up to $US40/h a cab driver might settle for 150$US for the day.
