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
Our first booking was cancelled due to flooding in the cave, but fortunately we were able to reschedule the following day. We hadn't realised when we booked for the tour that we'd also get to enjoy the beautiful trip across Lake Te Anau! Spectacular scenery, professional, knowledgable and friendly guides, and the caves were a great experience my kids and I thoroughly enjoyed.
Great trip, great experience, and educational, as one have the opportunities to understand better about glow worm and underwater cave.
This was amazing. In fact I would go as far as saying that this was my New Zealand Holiday Highlight. It was fascinating. We had glorious weather and thoroughly enjoyed the boat trip on Lake Te Anau. Stunning place and would highly recommend this trip. The only small thing that I should mention is that when the guide turns out the lights in the cave when you are on the small boat prepare young children if they are afraid of the dark because it is extremely dark and my son was very frightened. You have just got to go and see this. Amazing.
awesome adventure loved every minute even shed a tear when we hit the grotto absolutely amazing
We loved the cave tours. The boat trip across the lake was really scenic. Our guide at the caves was great and gave us a lot of detail about the area, the caves, and the glow worms. The tour allows you to view the glow worms up close and the views were absolutely stunning.
Our trip was fantastic. The staff were courteous and knowledgable. The caves are magical and it is definitely worth taking the time to venture over.
My family and I loved this trip. We went on the late afternoon one and it was great to cross the lake in daytime and return at night. The Cave itself is amazing!! We loved the whole trip.
We loved this trip. It was well organised, concise, and the glow worms put on a lovely display. The cave formation was amazing, the little boat ride was fun for the kids. A worthwhile family activity.
Very enjoyable, a cruise across the Lake which is very scenic followed by the walk through the caves, (which requires a little bit of bending, because the ceiling of the cave is low) then the little boat takes you through complete darkness ans silence to see the Glow worms. Great trip highly reccommended
What a lovely evening, a cruise across Lake Te Anau followed by a very interesting and informative time followed by a visit into the world of the glow worm. Not for the claustrophobic and if you are tall, watch your head, but don't miss out, well worth the time and money

I had expected this tour to be pretty hokey and was very happily surprised. The boat ride to the caves was beautiful and once there, we learned all about the glow worm as well as the caves and general geology of the area. Being able to walk back through the caves and see the power of the water was really interesting, and the boat ride to the dark caves where the glow worms could show off their light was a lot of fun. Highly recommend this tour!
Fantastic experience. Very educating with respect to the survival of tiny insect/worm through life cycle. Wonderful staff service all around.
I have done this trip three times and each time the service has been fantastic both on the boat and in the cave.
