Great cave, small family business. We arrived early on a winter day and the guide took the two of us through. Was well worth it, saw lots of formations and masses of glow worms. Also learned more about glow worms than I've ever known before. Also nice bush walk on our own to finish off.

A great cave system with multiple glowworm sites. The family owned business keep it simple and let the location do the charming. Tour guide was very good. Reasonably priced. Steep walk at the end.

Small family run enterprise, which is not as comercialised as Waitomo. Staff member was very friendly and informative. Tour lasted about 20 minutes and a further 15-20 min walk through interesting limestone rock formations on exiting cave. If you just want to see glow worms this tour is far more affordable offering good value.
