Perfect trip! Great way to see forest and glow worms. Friendly fun helpful staff. Water is cold but well worth it. Different from other blackwater caving. Less climbing in the caves more time on the river but still very pretty.

Great to see lots of Wakas roaming round on the walk to the flying fox. Lots of fun tubing down the river, hot choc in the glow worm caves/ Beer... More

Didn't know what to expect but turned out to be great fun. We were well kitted out with warm clothes and wet suits and spent the morning being carried down the river on tubes. Saw the glow-worms and enjoyed hot chocolate in complete darkness. The beer and muffin in the hot spa afterward was great.

This trip had a variety of activities built into to it and was good value for money. The zipline was a real thrill and the tube down this beautiful river through the rainforest was real fun too. The staff were very helpful and helped us with travel advice. This was one experience I would recommend

I don't know why I feel so ambivalent about this trip. We have done so many amazing tours in New Zealand, so I think I have set a pretty high bar. I have to admit that the cost has something to do with that. It was the most expensive tour that we did and we've pretty well done them all.... More

This trip was an unexpected delight. We wanted to do a cave and glow-worm trip some where but this trip turned out to be so much more. It suited our group as we could choose what we wanted to do as we went. A couple of us missed out the zipline but I did it and it is a must... More

This was a trip with a whole variety of things included in it so was good value for money, the caves, glow-worms, tubing, a thrilling zipline and some of us did a cliff jump. When we arrived they told us that the water was low but we still decided to do it anyway. I'm glad we did as it was... More

The first time coming to NZ and my girlfriend could not stop telling me that caving was a must do. So obviously this was not something that we were going to miss and were happy to pay beyond our pockets for a good experience. You would think for the price we payed, we were on the ball.......but clearly proven wrong!... More
