More than just some glow worms

This group makes for a real experience. Abseiling down to the cave really sets the mood that you are heading into a cave that hasn't been nerfed with walkways and lighting. Simon was a fun guide and made sure had a great time. The climb back up was enjoyable, I was puffed by the time I got to the top. But I wanted to challenge myself and see how quickly I could navigate it.

Best Glowworm Cave Tour ever!

It was one of the best experiences I had in New Zealand! My friends and I were really lucky to find this deal on Bookme and spontaneously decided to go. Turns out there was no one else and we ended up having a private Tour with a great guide who showed us all of the hidden treasures, all the while keeping us entertained. The activities were diverse and time just flies by. The big Glowworm Cave is the most beautiful I've ever seen - and I have seen a few, and Nigel certainly knows his way around all the little cracks he had us crawl through! We had a great time, lots of fun and we even got fed ;) all in all a perfect day!

good experience

We were lucky as our tour which was for 6 people only had 2 (my partner and I), I couldn't have imagined doing the tour with our specific tour guide in a bigger group. Our tour guide was nice but old school than the other tour guides. This made me feel very uneasy. He made jokes about things when I was scared, especially when doing the abseiling and saw eels. His explaination of the process was not clear and at one point told us a horror story about a man doing an abseil before we did it. The experience was good, the glow worms were amazing. The water is very cold so be prepared as it was a shock when i entered as at times it went up to my neck and I am 5 ft 3.

Don't do it safe your money

The Office especially the toilet there was dirty. Our guide smoked the whole pre phase and he didn't seem like a fit guy moreover he consistently made jokes about us and gave sexist comments. We didn't feel comfortable or safe. The rafting part was unspectacular and the whole tour was just 4 hours instead of 5. It is an experience but not in this untrustworthy manner and for this high price.

From Waitomo - Kiwi Cave Rafting - Black Water Rafting

What you have described is unprofessional behaviour from our staff member, something we take very seriously. Please contact us directly on kiwicaverafting@gmail.com as and need information such as the date and time of the tour so we can investigate this.
