This was an interesting tour with a mix of history, geology and gnatology (my term). The limestone is pristine and the gentle boat ride to observe the glow worms is magical.

We’ll worth seeing and experiencing. The caves are amazing and the glow worms were great to see. Loved the boat ride and guide Tui was full of information.

A one-of-a-kind experience that I'm so glad we travelled for. It was immersive, original and the stuff dreams are made of.

The guide seemed genuinely interested in showing us around and was very knowledgeable as to the topic and the history

A great tour. Lots of information about the cave history etc.
