My husband Mike and I did the 7-hour Lost World tour on March 29th with Brad and Dean who were awesome tour guides. We had a good group of Americans and one Dutch guy and we all had a good rapport with the guides. They made sure we felt safe and had an amazing time. We did the abseil which was less scary when I realized I felt pretty safe hanging on the rope. The rest of the adventure throughout the cave is so unreal and breathtaking. You truly must see it to believe what you do because it's pretty incredible in the caves. I didn't know my own strength! It is not a trip for the claustrophobic or physically weak, but if you have good cardiovascular health and can swim, climb, and jump you will love it. It left us a little sore and bruised, but it was so worth it because it was spectacular. After the adventure in the cave, you hike back to an awesome BBQ meal. Seriously, I wasn't sure what to expect for dinner but the sweet potatoes (kumara) were to die for, and as a vegetarian they gave me a great veggie patty. And they introduced me to the joy of drinking L&P. I wish they had it in the states! The pictures that Brad and Dean took were good though a few were corrupted. They sent me a fixed set of the pics which was nice of them. Definitely purchase the CD or memory stick because you want photo memories of this trip. If you go to the North Island, definitely go to Waitomo and do the 7-hour Epic Adventure. It's choice, bro! :)
