I had the extreme pleasure of going on the Glowworm Cave Tubing Adventure in February 2016 with Wild West Adventure Company. This was an outstanding tour!
I would highly recommend asking for Kreig as your tour guide. Kreig made sure that the entire adventure was exciting and FUN. He willingly shares a great deal of knowledge of the area, helps you understand the incredible environment you experience during this tour, and his funny stories are bound to make you laugh. Kreig also adds some extra special touches to the tour (great hot chocolate break in the cave!) and he makes a real effort to take photos and videos during the adventure so memories of your time tubing and caving are captured.
If you are considering having your young children go on this tour, Kreig would undoubtedly be a tremendous guide for them. He would make sure the kids have an absolute BLAST and teach them new things during the tour while also ensuring their safety at all times.
As an American, visiting New Zealand for the very first time, it was definitely hard to decide what adventures to choose and I am very glad that I selected Wild West Adventure. I was highly impressed with this company from the point of making the reservation to the completion of the tour - worth every penny! Consummate professionalism combined with a phenomenally fun and unique adventure that you won't experience anywhere else in the world. This tour is a tremendous way to truly experience New Zealand!

Excellent fun, expensive for what you get, not a lot of water in low water but made up for it really well.

We did a rainforest kayak trip with these guys and wow...it was amazing. The scenery in some of these west coast rivers is as good as i've seen anywhere in the world. Big granite canyons with aquamarine blue water.

We did a grade 3 white water kayaking adventure with these guys. The boats were inflatable 2 person kayaks that proved to be quite stable compared to what I was expecting. They took us on a 4x4 tour into the mountains and then we kayaked back down the river. Awesome country and an amazing canyon that you go through with pale blue water. The rapids were really good fun and I enjoyed having to be responsible for steering our own kayak. The guide was with us all the time and we stopped often to look at the next section of river so we could see which way we wanted to go. There were only four people on our tour so we got an awesome experience.
