Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Glow worms can only be seen in the dark, and this cave is particularly suited to it. Special lights were provided to the walkers and the guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. There were handrails for the narrow walk and we were cautioned to watch our heads (it is a natural cave, folks).
The forest walk was also informative (we learned about the indigenous trees) due to our driver/walk guide. This walk had some ups and down terrain in a narrow forest footpath, but it was not too hard for me. (I am in 70s and not great shape.)
There was also an unexpected stop to admire the work of a really creative architect in a nearby town.

This was an excellent day out and a great way to explore the local area.
Our driver/guide was great and imparted a lot of information.
The fact that there were only eight of us made it a great experience and the fish and chip lunch was superb, as was the local beer.
Highly recommended.

Bay of Islands is lovely. We had great weather and Bill was a wonderful guide to the Caves, the forest with the 1000 year old Kapua trees and the town of Kawakawa to see Hundertstasse recycled public bathrooms and small town.
Vans are small and able to get into areas the cruise ship tour busses cannot. They are prompt and make sure you return to your ship before they weigh anchor.

I place worthwhile visiting. We were lucky and had a guide just for ourselves. He was a young local boy from the region and he knew everything about the cave. It is really impressive to see these thousands of green shining points, especially at the ceiling of the cave they look like the milky way in a clear dark night.

We nearly missed connecting with our group due to long shuttle lines from our ship, but they managed to accommodate us and it was a really nice tour, with a lot of variety. The forest walk was really lovely and tranquil. Our guide was knowledgeable and kind. The family that operated the glow worm caves were very welcoming and that was such a treat. The caves are huge, with high "ceilings" like you're in a cathedral in some spots. Lots of beautiful glow worms. We were very happy on this tour. Thank you to everyone at Mullarkey Tours.

We went on this wine tasting tour. It was most disappointing 1st winery Marsden was good but lunch disappointing. The cruise ship had a Novo virus on board and eating from a shared plate with one set of utensils was unacceptable. Second stop was a hobby vineyard owned by an ex. American and he and an American man on the tour dominated the time on all sort of issues not related to wine (which was ordinary selection) Our driver should have cut the conversation short and got us to move on. The last vineyard did not give any commentary as to the wine tastings and our driver left us and came back 40 mins later. We were suppose to go to a Craft beer brewery... that didn't happen.

Many thanks for taking the time to give us a review. In terms of your feedback my comments are as follows. I agree the catering arrangements were not ideal, however that was beyond my control. I will speak to the driver about not cutting short the conversation at the Fat Pig. I will also speak with the owners of the last vine yard about the lack of commentary. Unfortunately, on the day of the tour the craft beer outlet was closed, this should have been explained to you. Can you please let me know who you booked through and I will compensate you for the under performance.

We arrived via cruise ship and highly recommend this tour for those looking for independent tours instead of ship tours. Small group and well run with professional and knowledgeable tour guide. The glow worms are glowy, and the cave itself is also a stunning work of nature. The kauri trees are majestic, and the forest preserve peaceful. So glad we got to experience both the caves and forest. We also enjoyed the small lunch break at Kawakawa. After visiting the art installation, we wandered into a local grocery store and purchased several local snacks to try. On our way back, we were given the option of being dropped off near the open market for more shopping or returning directly to the tender wharf. Just a very well done tour that let us sample some of the beauty of the area.
