$20 for an adult is real great value for a cave like this. The tour takes about one hour and you see real cool stalagmites. Really nice guide. Also see Moa bones inside. Take the tour and get a great coffee afterwards (not included).

Surprised this does not get more visitors. Beautiful subterranean display and enthusiastic guide.

$17 per person, 45 minute guided trip through the caves, this area was also a film set for The Hobbit, part three.

It was very interesting to get some general information about caves, stalactites and stalagmites. But it did not blow us away, although the guide was very nice. It was interesting to see some old Moa and Kiwi bones as well!

Very beautiful cave and also a great guide. It is not expensive and it is worth it to go there.
