  • We went with my girlfriend on a very small group, we were only 6. The Guide, Ross, was very good, friendly, gave us lots of interesting information and showed us amazing things. We definitely recommend it. It was a very pleasant and quiet visit. The staff was very friendly.

  • Really enjoyed this tour. Guides were knowledgeable and really friendly. Amazing caves. Small group so you aren’t crowded with a whole bunch of people. Family run business, lots of glow worms to see, fall backward from a waterfall and lazily drift through caves full of glow worms on a rubber tube. Had a lot of fun!
  • The tour guide is very kind and knowledgeable. We have a lot of fun. 2 hours is not too long and not too short!
  • Very very interesting. Well worth it. 👍👍
  • Roman was very informative and made the trip worthwhile. Must do in NZed.
  • Fantastic place. Awesome caves.. not crowded and the tour guide had excellent Maori pronunciation
