It was an awesome experience. Tim was patient and funny. I really enjoyed this trip, it is definitely worth going and i really think this one is more interesting than other glowworm caves.

Better than expected. My 8yr loved it to. We paddled in a double but probably she would have preferred a single -lake cruisy. Kayaking at night a must do. Tim is the guide to have.

Our group of 7 had a terrific experience. This was hands-down the highlight of our Tauranga road trip.
10/10 would recommend this trip to anyone.
The actual kayaking is not actually hard and the glowworms were so beautiful.

HUGE thanks to our tour guide TIM!!
