    Amazing experience

    The glowworm cave was unbelievable. I would recommend doing another cave too. Otherwise you will have to travel a long time for just 45 minutes on that cave. All the other caves are super interesting.

    A must-see!

    The trip only includes the first glowworm cave, but we were given the option to pay extra for the Ruakuri cave. Great opportunity to see the amazing glowworms and limestone structures up-close as well as to explore far underground. Friendly driver, reached the caves and back on time.

    Good trip

    Really good trip and it's worth it, just a shame the time in the caves is so short!

    Short but Good

    We were really looking forward to this experience, and we did find it fascinating. Our guide was OK. He was informative, but could have been more engaged and excited.
