This was one of the best activities I have ever done! It was so much FUN!!! The walk through the farm and forest before and after the caving was truly beautiful, and the caving itself was incredible. We had so much fun climbing and exploring we totally forgot about the glow worms!!... But the glow worms were magical!! One of the most beautiful sights you will ever see. Our guide was brilliant, so informative and relaxed, he took some great photos of us throughout the experience, which you wouldn’t get from your own camera so that was a bonus and was so encouraging when caving through the nooks and crannies! All the staff were so friendly! This is a total one off experience of a life time! You’ve gotta do it! :)
Greeted warmly by Sarah upon checkin, oriented to the experience and fully clothed. We weren't expecting the caving/clambering aspect of the tour but it just added to the whole experience. Awesome formations, small, intimate group and the guide, Ash was very funny and knowledgeable. Photos are included in the tour but you can bring a phone for your own additional photos.
Have done quite a few of the caves in this area and this cave trip has to be the best. Cave is in its raw state, some narrow passage ways, sometimes walking in the creek. Fossils. Excellent stuff. My 14 year old grandson was just buzzing with the experience. 3 hour tour. Great tour guide we had (Ashley) Excellent, friendly company to deal with
Excellent tour with tons of glow worms. Experienced caving and the glow worms in a small group away from the crowds. One of a kind great experience. Tour guide Heath was phenomenal, knowledgeable, and fun. Sarah was fantastic prepping us and providing snacks and coffee/tea after. Highly recommend!
This was probably one of the best trips I did while in NZ. The instructor was amazing and really inspired confidence. The caving was fun and Glow worms amazing. There were only 5 of us on our trip so he was able to tailor it to our groups
