More than just some glow worms

This group makes for a real experience. Abseiling down to the cave really sets the mood that you are heading into a cave that hasn't been nerfed with walkways and lighting. Simon was a fun guide and made sure had a great time. The climb back up was enjoyable, I was puffed by the time I got to the top. But I wanted to challenge myself and see how quickly I could navigate it.

Best Glowworm Cave Tour ever!

It was one of the best experiences I had in New Zealand! My friends and I were really lucky to find this deal on Bookme and spontaneously decided to go. Turns out there was no one else and we ended up having a private Tour with a great guide who showed us all of the hidden treasures, all the while keeping us entertained. The activities were diverse and time just flies by. The big Glowworm Cave is the most beautiful I've ever seen - and I have seen a few, and Nigel certainly knows his way around all the little cracks he had us crawl through! We had a great time, lots of fun and we even got fed ;) all in all a perfect day!

Don't do it safe your money

The Office especially the toilet there was dirty. Our guide smoked the whole pre phase and he didn't seem like a fit guy moreover he consistently made jokes about us and gave sexist comments. We didn't feel comfortable or safe. The rafting part was unspectacular and the whole tour was just 4 hours instead of 5. It is an experience but not in this untrustworthy manner and for this high price.

From Waitomo - Kiwi Cave Rafting - Black Water Rafting

What you have described is unprofessional behaviour from our staff member, something we take very seriously. Please contact us directly on [email protected] as and need information such as the date and time of the tour so we can investigate this.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS ! NIGEL SHOULD BE BANNED

DO NOT GO ON THIS TOUR ! CHEATS ! NIGEL NEEDS TO BE BEHIND BARS for SEXUAL MISCONDUCT & PHYSICAL ASSAULT & VERBAL ABUSE Avoid at all cost. The organisation is very unprofessional and the guide NIGEL should be BANNED and put behind bars for SEXUAL MISCONDUCT & HARASSMENT, VERBAL ABUSE and PHYSICAL ASSAULT. He me on the head and twice and abused me when I happened to take of my helmet during a rest break. had to physically stop him from further assaulting me. when he asked what we did for a living and heard my wife was a teacher he went on to speak inappropriately to the extent to say that he hates teachers because he got thrown out of school at 14 for sleeping with his teacher. he then questioned the length of our relationship. Completely unprofessional. Later he cancelled the tour half way through based on the excuse that its getting late and he thinks we aint up to doing it. Very upsetting as we had spent an arm and a leg on this $870 for the 6 of us, all our money washed down the drain. The equipment was filthy and unhygienic. the changing rooms and shower were filthy and ice cold. total INHUMAN conditions to function in. DO NOT GO ON THIS TOUR WITH NIGEL AT ANY COST
