Exhilarating, once in a lifetime experience. We had the luxury of going to the back of the cave since our group was small. Guide was excellent, funny, informative and friendly. Worth the time, drive and money. At first seemed a bit drawn out, but need to have the full effect.
We had an amazing guide, Em who made the trip so much fun as well as informative. On top of that, she was serious about safety so that we knew what to expect. We almost skipped Waitomo because it was a bit out of the way and I'm so happy we wound up doing it. A great, once-in-a-lifetime memory that we'll always have!
Absolutely fantastic, guides were great and loads of fun. Pictures were well worth buying and not extortionate as with some other places. Highlight of our 2 month trip!
It was such a unique adventure experience, I am not sure you can do this anywhere else. The guides were very safe, informative and funny.
What a fun experience! Our guides were great...a little chilly towards the end....but such a great experience! I would not recommend for someone who can't swim though.
It was great experience! It needed a bit courage and pretty good health :

Excellent trip, just two of us with 2 guides simon and ola...who went out of their way to ensure we had a special experience. Black Abyss is an incredible tour - the free climb out through the waterfalls was intense - would highly recommend
Best fun ever - would do this one again and again and again...
Excellent trip, really enjoyed this. See the glo worms that arent really worms at all, as we found out. Be prepared for the chilly water though! :
I was glad I did the five-hour option but I was tired and ready for my soup by the end! It was really magical - entertaining and well informed guides helped us feel safe throughout.
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.
our family group of eight had a wonderful time . the course was challenging in parts but such an unreal experience that it well worth it. i can sometimes be a little claustrophobic but no worries here at all. the guides were helpful and informative with a bit of humour attached.definately recommend it
A must do in Waitomo. The guides were incredible and the entire experience was unreal. Although claustrophobic I had a really lovely time inside the cave. The water was freezing but it didnt take too long to get used to it. Watching the glowworms was spectacular.
The only not so great thing - We ended up purchasing a CD of photographs at the end of the tour - but they werent of great quality.
