  • Fantastic experience, and Chris was an excellent guide. Totally recommended and well worth the price.  more »
  • I enjoyed the experience, but I'd have to say I was a bit disappointed. They should be more clear on how much actual rafting it involves. In our trip it was simply drifting on a tube for a relatively short stretch in quite still water. Apart from that the abseiling at the start, and rock climbing at the end were fun. The glow worms were amazing (worth it for that - best I've seen) but the caving seemed a little contrived to produce photo opportunities. Overall, I'd say the tour was definitely worth it, you just need to go in with the right expectations.
  • A fun and adventurous experience of exploring Waitomo caves and witnessing the wondrous effect of the thousands of glowworms illuminating the dark tunnels. A few too many photo opps for my taste, especially as it was only to generate more money for the tour operator - they ask you to pay extra to get the photos for yourself. It wasn't a cheap tour so getting a few photos of the experience (as own cameras were banned) would've been a great added value.
