great trip - well looked after by guides and good fun - be aware that you will not be able to bring cameras or go pros etc as the guides take photos and sell them but they are not too expensive ($30) and you do get a professional promotional video as part of the package.
A must do for anyone with an adventurous spirit. Loved our tour guides. They were instructional, patient, and had a great personality.
Had a wonderful time. Would highly recommend this type of tour for all ages that are physically able.
This was the highlight of our holiday. We saw beautifulP arts of nature while having a lot of fun. The tour guides (scuba and pirate) were terrific and kept us well informed about the caves as we went along. I would definitely recommend this tour - a must do ! Thanks again for the best experience in NZ!,!,
This was amazing. All suited up with wetsuits, the water was cold. Fantastic staff, great jumping from waterfalls, floating in the dark looking up at the glow worms. Recommend it highly.
Excellent round. Extremely, positively, very interestingly and unusually. I recommend to all! ) ) )
Especially there is a wish to mark out my guides - Roger and Pirate for cool spent time
Operators were great, experience was amazing, indescribable. Even though it was cold outside and definitely inside it was well worth it. Could have Done with more pictures inside the cave though
The programme is very well planed with full of fun. Our guides Shanne and Anne are extremely caring and funny! Strongly recommand the 5 hrs programme than the 3 hrs one!
The Black Water Rafting experience was awesome. The guides were fun and informative. Just be aware that if your leaving from Auckland, it is a 2.5 hour drive South. I did not realise this when I booked and we had trouble getting there. There was no public transport that would get us there on time and we ended up having to hire a car, which added to the price. It would be good if a transfer option was included. The tour itself is well worth it though. My teenagers loved it.
good guides, awesome fun.. well worth it.
