We took this trip with the whole family from grandparents, children and grand-kids (14 and 11y.o.). It was a question whether we could keep up with the kids but excellent guides and easy kayak conditions ensured everybody got a fantastic experience. It was only as hard as how you wanted to approach it, so those with energy who wanted to power ahead could, and those who wanted a leisurely ride along the stream could also do that as the guides stayed ahead and behind the group to keep everyone moving along. The ride back through the glowworms was excellent and the talk provided by the guides was informative. At night the kayaking was a different experience but not so dark that it was dangerous or scary. Lights on the kayaks meant you just followed the others ahead until you reached the landing area again. A long night considering the drive back to Auckland but one that was well worth it and enjoyed by all. Well run and organised by the crew and they were easy to talk to and very friendly.
