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.
We took the night tour in late May. It was cold and wet, but a really interesting experience.
30 minute cruise on the lake to access the cave complex. The glow worm experience was 15 minutes walk through the caves and a 15 minute boat ride in the caves in a group of 14 maximum. Short presentation with explanation in the visitors centre. Be aware no photographs are allowed within the caves. The cave complex is incredible with waterfalls and rushing water below the purpose built walkway through the chambers. The boat ride was really relaxing as you circle the main glow worm chamber in the dark. The guide was really friendly with excellent knowledge of the caves and a real passion for the place. We would recommend the late tour to experience the stars on the return trip on the lake we could even see the milky way. If you are in Te Anau I would definitely make this one thing that you do.
The whole experience was most interesting including gliding in a flat bottomed boat in complete darkness. The information session was, well, very informative.
Was everything I expected. As described in promotional materials.
A must when visiting Te Anau. Glow worms looks like stars in the sky. Great initial boat trip across the lake
Absolutely brilliant - boat trip was magical, especially our return around 9.00pm - and the tour of the caves was excellently organised with an informative verbal introduction and a further show with slides to conclude. And as for the caves - well just don't miss the opportunity!!
This was a wonderful and very unique tour. Highly recommended!
We really enjoyed the trip because of the variety of experiences- boat road across the huge lake with wonderful views, walk in huge, dark underground tunnel/cave alongside roaring river, peaceful boat ride in dark, glow worm lit caves, then an interesting presentation whilst having coffee/tea.
Excellent tour of Lake Te Anau and the interesting glow worm caves.
This Tour was amazing - my daughter and I loved it. Very informative staff! Glow worm caves amazing - incredible rock formations and glow worms were beautiful. Would highly recommend this tour - watch out for the sandflys though.
The trip across the lake was very scenic, and the caves themselves were very interesting. Wear clothing that you don't mind getting a bit wet.
We went along expecting to see glow worms in a cave but were pleasantly suprised by the wonderful well organised experience. Met at Visitors Centre Te Anau - approx 20km boat trip (awesome) - Cave Tour excellent. This is a very well organised, friendly good value for money trip! Thanks Karen/Richard
