Had a great time - wasn't prepared for the spectacle of the caves themselves. The glow worms were fascinating but the sand flies less so - bring insect repellent.

The tour was great, but not for those scared of tight spaces or darkness. Had to crouch low in some spots on the walk to the grotto, and the boat ride to the caves was nice too. Better to do this tour at dusk, best time. Really loved it, interesting to learn about the glow worm too.
A very interesting tour well worth the time even on a miserable rainy day.

This more about the formation of the caves. The amount of water rushing through has to be seen to be believed, we were there after constant rain. The peacefulness of the glow worm itself was magic!

The spectacle is amazing and the action of the water features is dramatic - worth experiencing without the glow worms which were indeed not impressive. The support and service from the staff was first class in content and presentation. Both my wife and I would thoroughly recommend this attraction

I thought the tour was great -- a beautiful boat ride over to the caves and then an exciting walk through the grotto. It was early but the worms glowed brightly.

A fascinating experience. The guide provided wonderful insights into the cave and the glowworms and the trip across Lake Te Anau was a bonus.
Very enjoyable cruise with fantastic views and knowledgeable guide.
It was a wonderful experience. Can't describe to you, you just have to do it to appreciate it.
Glad we went and saw the glow worms. Very cool experience. Staff were friendly and informative.
Very different - an amazing underground experience. Tour guide and cruise was great!
A good day trip to enjoy a river cruise and look at caves.
While the glow worms were neat to see, there is a lot of rushing water and dark places where people with claustrophobia issues have problems.
A lovely little trip, the glow worms were amazing and the access to see them an experience.
The glow worm cave tour is a must see. It was a great experience for our family from the boat trip over to the actual cave tour itself. The guides were informative both on the transport boat about the area and about the caves and glow worms. The only thing they may consider is not taking very small children on the tour as it recommended to have no noise in the caves and parents on our tour found it hard to keep their toddler quiet. A little extra time at the education centre before heading back would also be good so that you have an opportunity to read all the information provided as well as grab coffee. Overall we loved the experience.
This is the most touristy thing I have done while traveling in years. Generally, I hate touristy things. That said, it was very well organized and the glow worms were amazing. Great experience and very happy I did it, touristy or not.
Really magical seeing the glow worms - more of them than I thought there would be - and going in the small boar in the pitch black was really fun and atmospheric. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly.
