Our tours are friendly, informative and fun. With no more than 12 people on board, raft beneath many thousands of fabulous glowworms to see them at their very best. We visit private caves away from the regular, more commercial tours. Our caves are on a beautiful hill country farm and your guide is also your host, so expect a really enjoyable and memorable tour of our two magical caves.

Spectacular Experience!!! 100% Spellbound Tours is definitely the company to choose for glowworm tours in the Waitomo Caves region. Hohepa, our guide was absolutely awesome! We went into x2 caves on a private tour. There was great explanations, descriptions, it was so informative and very exciting. We saw glowworms galore and the other cave was equally beautiful in a totally unique way. This was a magical experience that our whole group loved and will always remember as being amazing! We were treated like VIP's & appreciate Hohepa and the team for creating such a fabulous tour!! 10/10

want to thank you again for a great time. Isabella could not stop talking about her experience to her mum and older sister. Isy was scared to go into Calgardup cave in 2020, but today she is a cave lover. Spellbound Cave is awesome and we could not ask for a better host Sunny, Isy, Katie, Nick and Marcelo

Amazing tour! One of the best cave tours that I’ve had in my life. Both caves are beautiful, very well maintained and easy to walk. We felt very safe all the time even if sometimes we had to walk in completely darkness. Pete was wonderful. Very communicative. He gave us lots of interesting information and answer all our questions with a lot of passion. You can really realise that he loves his job! And particularly I love that in the guide tours cause make me fall in love of the places :) the navigable part of the trip, left us with the mouth open. Absolutely spectacular ! Was much more than we were expecting. 100% recommended
