I had thought about renting a car from Rotorua to Auckland, but I shied away from this because of the challenges of driving on the other side of the road. Then we learned that we could take the bus from Rotorua and stop at the famous Waitomo glowworm caves on the way to Auckland. Accomplish two goals at once? We took quick advantage of the opportunity. What can you say about glowworms? The famous song may be American, but the species of fly or gnat is unique to New Zealand. Very few persons outside of New Zealand have seen glowworms, and any opportunity to see them should not be missed. At the site, we got into a small boat and went through the caves under the innumerable dots of light above out heads. The view of the glowworms lasts just 15 minutes or so, but it is definitely worth it. The bus ride through the New Zealand countryside was lovely. All in all, this was a truly wonderful way to get from point A to point B.
This tour was great! I loved the knowledge that i gained all through the ride and the caves were unbelievable. Highlight of my trip. I have taken a few tours now and the tour guide on this trip was the coolest nicest one ive had. She deserves a raise for sure!

was a long bus trip, transfer ran smoothly and the caves were incredible!
The driver picked us up on time at our hotel and provided a very interesting commentary all the way from Rotorua to Auckland. The cave tour was amazing--a great experience.
see the Witomo caves is a unique experience in the world
Amazing Waitomo Glowworm experience. Awesome diver - she was very knowledgeable, safe, friendly diver!! Highly recommended.
I loved the tour:)
Waitomo Glowworm is the place you cant miss if you have an opportunity to go to Aucland/Rotorua.
I highly recommend this tour all tourists
Good trip, some nice stops besides the cave, the cave itself is worth of money paid, - so highly recommended!
Waitomo caves were very impressive even without the glowworms. The boat ride in the dark, with glowing stars glowworms was just magical. Our cave guide was great - funny, knowledgeable and very personable.
The bus ride was good, our driver had a lot of interesting information about the area to share. He got really annoyed when people were talking a parent quietly explaining something to a small child during the same time he was talking and he didn't hesitate to chastise those offenders with a good 2-minute lecture - not appropriate at all, in my opinion.
A good way to travel from Rotorua to Auckland, with an interesting stop at the very cool caves which would otherwise be quite inaccessible. Driver was fun, knew alot about the area and was responsive to the group.
