We were really lucky we happened to be the only two on our booking so we essentially had a private tour! Our guide was incredible and having worked there for a number of years knew the cave system like the back of her hand. She...More
We paid $130 (for 6) to rain ride through the so called 'rainforest'. The service was so disorganised, no one seemed to know what was going on, we were told we may have to wait between 10 - 45 minutes but waited an hour for...More
We were provided helmets, shoes, socks and wet suits however these are extremely worn and in much need of replacement/repaired. The right sizes weren’t available for everyone which isn’t ideal
Lockers aren’t available and we were asked to leave our valuables in our car which...More
We booked the black water rafting trip and were all underwhelmed with the day. On arrival it was shambolic and understaffed. Must have taken at least an hour just to get our wetsuits and there did not seem to be a system for the sizing...More
This was the most fun we had in NZ. We got fitted out with a full wet suit, booties and all, then embarked on our journey to the mouth of the cave. This was an experience in itself. Peter, our guide, was brilliant. He was...More
Knowledgeable local exuberant guides led our groups through caves of formations, into the stream to bob through the cavern of glow-worms, and out down the gentle rapids and back to the quaint train to base. It was a memorable highlight of our trip.

We did the Underworld Tour and every part of it was just great: the train through the rainforest, the walking in the cave and of course the glowworms! It is no real rafting, but we had a lot of fun in the tubes on the...More
Combined glow worm caves and rafting (tyre tube). Plus a little train ride to the starting point. We had a fantastic trip with a very knowledgeable and patient guide.
All the gear you need is provided and the guide took photos of us along the...More
I have been to both Te Anau and Waitomo caves. I would recommend the Charleston Cave as the more enjoyable experience of the three. Smaller cave but a much more intimate experience and the stalactites absolutely amazing... More
I have been to both Te Anau and Waitomo caves. I would recommend the Charleston Cave as the more enjoyable experience of the three. Smaller cave but a much more intimate experience and the stalactites absolutely amazing. Given the opportunity I will return to the Charleston cave but probably not the other two. Enjoy your trip.
