Crowdles Caves, Stellar Stalactites, Larvae lights with Hospitable Host
Apr 2021 • Family
Hospitable, personable host; great for those wanting a time efficient viewing, of some amazing caves without the crowds. Attention to detail with obvious hard work put into making this a comfortable journey and walk. Comfortable cushioned seats in the caves, charming shack with refreshing kawakawa tea. Tribute to this families hard work, with well maintained paths and steps.Thoughtful care and time taken to ensuring time for photos. A refreshing change from tourist crowds.

WOW, what an experience. Thank you so much for the cave tour. The Cave was beautiful, the glow worms were amazing, the stories and information were fantastic and to end the tour in the tea hut with a fresh brew of kawakawa tea just ended the tour perfectly. Highly recommend.

The Footwhistle Cave is owned by a local family and is an excellent tour as well as being exceptional value for money. We were met at Waitomo Village by Ross (the Boss) and taken by van to the cave on private property. This is a very safe and educational tour with thousands of glow worms and a very good spoken history from Ross. The tour is followed by a refreshing cup of freshly brewed Kawakawa tea. We took three children with us and they thoroughly enjoyed the tour. I recommend it.

We did the sunset footwhistle glowworm cave tour and it was well worth the visit. Ross our guide was amazing so knowledgeable and so talented given what they have done with the cave. Kiwi ingenuity at its best. Highly recommend this tour.

Highly recommend Footwhistle Glowworm Cave Tour!!
Dec 2020
Outstanding personalised tour! Kyle picked us promptly up from the Top 10 Holiday park in a very comfortable plush van. He gave a most interesting & informative tour. It was fascinating learning about the local history as well at the life cycle of the glow worms. The short walk in is very beautiful and is on an extremely well maintained track. I loved the little ponga tea rooms & kawakawa tea. The bush at the entrance down to the cave was beautiful. It was quite magical seeing all the glow worms. Kyle new good spots to take photos and even took some for us. This tour was the highlight of our few days away! I highly recommend this hard working, family run business!
