  • Worth seeing for the amazing glow worms, who create a small but impressive glow like stars on the cave walls and roof. Tour is short, but the staff are well informed and enthusiastic. The conservation angle is driven home, but tourism is obviously important.
  • It was amazing!! I cannot recommend this place enough, it was so cool to go into the cave they have and see of of the little glowing tails of the glow worms. It's a great stop and great for all ages to go and see. Get there early and expect a wait as it can get pretty popular and tours times fill up.
  • Wonderfully engaging tour! We booked online with short notice with no problems and enjoyed a half an hour filled with interesting facts and entertaining dialogue from our tour guide. The cave itself as well as the walk up to is a sight to see. I can honestly say I never thought insects could be so pretty and interesting before my visit! 10/10 would recommend!
  • The glow worm tour was absolutely awesome with lots of information on hand and the tour guide Alex was really awesome and the family loved it. The cellar door looked awesome and busy. However due to the wet tiles out the front from the rain my son face planted the tiles and cracked his top front tooth these things happen with kids however my wife had to go back in twice for them to give us some ice to put on his mouth and they didn't seem to care about his welfare but more interested in how much wine they could sell to the two bus loads of foreigners. Other than that I would highly recommended a visit to see the glow worms.
  • Great place for the kids. Wouldn't go just for the caves but a great little addition to a fantastic lunch and bottle of wine if you have children.
