    Super educational and beautiful. Just pray that you are with a quiet tour group or the noisy chatter will ruin the experience.

    Nice place to visit. The Ruakuri and Aranui caves are definitely worth to visit along with the Waitomo Glowworm Cave. Shame on careless tourists who with their equipment manages to damage glowworms.

    Don't let cameras into the cave, so take your best mental pictures :)

    Awesome experience but too short. This is a magical place though!

    Skip the mediocre food and drinks.

    Amazing tour! Do the black water canyoning - you will ab-sail, zip line, float, walk, and climb. Worth the ticket price for the experience. Staff is supper supportive and helpful the entire way.

    One of my favourite experiences in New Zealand. A must do! Dry and wet options available

    Absolutely must see, The Glow Warm Cave is the easiest way to see a beautiful cavern full of the glowwarms.

    Whereas some of the other tours do not allow it, you CAN take photos during the hour long Footwhistle Glowworm Cave walking tour. Our tour guide Rob was highly knowledgeable and friendly.

    Lame and overpriced. Do free waipu or abbey caves in northland instead if you can.

    Great place to visit. Very unique. You can't take photo's inside the cave but you can do it at the end of the boat ride. I'll give 7.5/10

    Ruakuri Cave was excellent with a great guide. Glowworm Cave is a much shorter trip. Great display of glowworms but you only see them for a few minutes.

    Millions of years in the making, Waitomo’s caves offer easy strolls and breathtaking boatrides under thousands of glowworms, or more adventurous experiences including Blackwater Rafting.
