What people are saying about Waitomo Caves

Auckland scenic tours is the BEST! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Our tour guide Louise was amazing and very knowledgeable, friendly plus her driving skills could rival that of some F1 drivers..not that she was driving fast but how she controlled the VAN! She gave us so much information about New Zealand and at no time during the whole 9 hours were we bored. She gave us so much information and took us so some hidden spots as well. The drive itself is BEAUTIFUL!As a LOTR fan the hobbiton tour was spectacular. The (one free) beers at the end are delicious. Our guide Adam was very good. Only thing is that you cant enter the hobbit holes just take pics outside and look inside but not physically enter. The glow worm caves were awesome too! It’s a treat for your senses We were guided by a great great grandson of the caves founder which made it so authentic .Make sure you wear comfortable clothing and shoes that can deal with mud and slightly wet areas. If you are looking to book the glow worm cave and hobbiton look no further than these guys.

This was a comprehensive humourous informative experience

Our guide was so well informed delivering relevant and fascinating facts the whole way to and from our destination. She was also very humorous which made the journey hugely rewarding. This was a 100 percent effort on her behalf to make it interesting and successful for the guests. I could not fault the experience on this day.

Hobbiton was fantastic, Waitomo was disappointing.

I compared Waitomo with the Te Anau caves and Waitomo did not start to compare. I found that the darkness while walking through and in particular going down the very inadequately lit steps verging on dangerous. Perhaps the longer cave tour would have been better. However, the young guide was very pleasant but I feel that I could not recommend Waitomo.
