Love the glowworm cave. Amazing - you travel inside a boat and see the cave lit up by the glowworms. It was a very convenient way to see sights while traveling to our next New Zealand destination - Rotorua

Very suitable tour. The cave is exceptional. I come from Bulgaria where we have all kind of caves, but this small one with this lights in the dark - great experience. This tour is nice because you can stay for a night in Roturua.

Bus trip turns into fun adventure under superb leadership of driver, Paul, and his trainee, Andy. The 5-hour drive flew by as Paul provided facts and stories about New Zealand. The riders played “The Game” to test retention of information provided by Paul and generally entertain the group. The Caves were fascinating. Needed more shopping time and the photos are too expensive.

Really enjoyed this tour. The driver/guide was very good. He gave us local information on the way to the caves and was very funny and entertaining. I would recommend this tour.

The driver was very knowledgeable and helpful. The cave with glowworms was also amazing but I wish they would have given more time for boating and looking for some souvenirs from the shop.

The caves are gorgeous, and the sweet-and-short-tour gave us a good timing in moving onto our next destination in Rotorua.

Well organised. Driver was comical and everyone seemed to enjoy his chat and sense if humour. Tour was extremely informative and extremely helpful dropping me off at my hotel as I was a solo traveller!! I would definitely recommend.

Very good indeed. The Waitomo cave trip is a "must see" for your North Island visit, and the commentary by the Great Sights coach driver, Peter, on the trip to Waitomo was useful, if a little quirky (and none the worse for that)!

Rotorua was interesting to wander round, particularly the gardens in the centre, but we only had a and few hours as we took the bus to Hamilton for an overnight stay before catching the Overlander train to Wellington - another must!

A nice trip! The glow worms and cave were really awesome! It is a nice way to see one of the major attractions and also get from one place to another. I don't recommend having the lunch included. We did it because we weren't sure if there were any other options. The place that you stop at for lunch sells things a la carte and the buffet was not worth the price!

I was very impressed by the Waitomo Glowworm Caves. The two drivers were very humorous and kind to us. Yet I was a little disappointed at the lunch.

I really liked the caves, even though they were strongly crowded.

I was really surprised by the glowworms. This is definitely worth a visit.

Bus Tour guide was amazing- BUT were told that we were VIP at Waitomo Glowworm Caves, that we go ahead of the line and are our group taken separately- WELL that is not the case- they put us with another group and there were over 45 of us, instead of 25. Cave guide made comments several times that group was much larger then normal. The icing on the cake was crying babies that ruined the experience. They were not asked to leave, could not hear the guide, nor had the quiet experience that we expected to have. Very disappointing!

I felt as the tour was a little unorganised. We left 15 minutes late because people didn't know where to check-in and which bus to board there was more than one. If you only want to get a small glimpse of Waitomo and get to Rotorua as fast as possible this is the tour for you. If you're like me and always want to see as much as possible, it isn't. The 30-45 min guided tour in the cave was good. However, I've visited a few caves around Australia and it didn't impress me the that much anymore. The very best bit of the tour were the glow worms. They are stunning! The boat ride lasts about 5 minutes and it felt like the shortest five minutes of my life because it was soo spectacular seeing the glow worms. I would definitely go back to Waitomo but I would rather book a tour where I get to see more.
