This is a very fun tour and the glowworms are beautiful. Two things should be changed to make it a better experience. First, don't allow flash photography. We had someone in our group taking flash photos/videos the whole time, which ruined everyone else's ability to see the glowworms. Second, let people actually kayak through the canyon part, instead of rafting up. Aside from those, it was a fun tour of kayaking down a peaceful river, and our guide was really helpful, informative, and easy-going. This is a nice small-group alternative to the Waitomo glowworm caves if you want a more personal experience.

Absolutely awesome! Highly recommend this tour. The guides were excellent and the glow worms were so cool to see. I’d never kayaked before but I felt very confident and safe. Such a cool experience was definitely a highlight of the trip, a must do! Worth every penny!

Best experience we had in New Zealand! Kayaking a placid lake at dusk, a great guide, Sean, and glow worms gave us a spectacular evening of memories.
A nice touch would be a photo of each kayak as they leave the staging area.

OMG! If you've never kayaked at night before, take this trip! The glow worms are beyond description. Tim and Shawn took excellent care of all of our kayak needs: clothes, life preservers, kayaks with lights and even cheese and wine. Quite the experience.
