  • 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.
  • Wonderful experience to watch such a living wonder with a guided tour, worthwhile spending time and money to view these wonderful creatures who do glow in the dark as universe, galaxy in the dark sky. Good narration from the guide.
  • Lot's of information i really didn't need to know, unless i decide to infiltrate a gang of international glow worm experts. Really good though, seriously
  • Pleasantly surprised by the facility and the man made glow worm cave is well worth the money, the guides were awesome, real asset to the organisation. The wines were pretty second rate - at least the ones we taste tested.
  • It was a good activity for the kids for a rainy day but wouldnt go if there was other things on. For a family I think it is a bit over priced considering it is not a real cave and just a small corridor. Tour guide with informative though and the little kids enjoyed it. Nice drive to the top so that is cool too.
