What people are saying about Waitomo
I had accidentally booked the wrong day for my tour, but the box office ladies were more than happy to accomodate my small group on the day I attended. The tour guide had a lovely sense of humour, and he was a good singer too! He ws also very caring of his clientele and made a good call to not take us into one section of the caves because the water level was too high. I thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
Highly recommend doing this, we (adults and children) found it to be an incredibly fascinating & magical experience. The boat ride at the end creates a sense of calm and relaxation as you observe the glow worms above you whilst silently gliding along in the boat. Our guide, Moi, was informative, kind and considerate. We loved the whanau connection he had to the caves
Have done quite a few of the caves in this area and this cave trip has to be the best. Cave is in its raw state, some narrow passage ways, sometimes walking in the creek. Fossils. Excellent stuff. My 14 year old grandson was just buzzing with the experience. 3 hour tour. Great tour guide we had (Ashley) Excellent, friendly company to deal with
We thought we new a lot about the caves when actually we didn’t. Great experience. With no tourists in NZ it was lovely for us to be the tourist. Our guild knew his stuff about the cave he spoke as if it was his own cave which shows me he has so much respect for it.
Amazing trip. Our guide Turia was a fountain of knowledge had a lovely sense of humour and the most awesome voice when she sang in the cathedral part of the caves.
