A highlight of my trip to Te Anau, one of the best places I have ever visited. A unique trip into a cave system hidden from view. Kids loved it and the experience is one I will never forget.
I took my two girls, 18 and 8. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience! The ferry ride over and back was awesome and very informative and friendly. The caves were spectacular, better than I remember from back when I was about 8. They are amazing creatures and to be able to see them in the unique way the tour takes you is really special. I would highly reccommend this journey to anyone.
