Kawiti Glowworm Caves = Amazing! || could skip rest of excursion
, Dec 2019
These specific Kawiti Glowworm Caves are amazing, 5 star. They have been in the specific Maori family for many generations and ahave a very spiritual feeling to them... not to mention that the gloworms are breathtaking! The good part of the excursion was that the van was small, only 8 or 10 people or so - not a huge bus. The rest of the excursion leaves a lot to be desired. The forest is lovely but it was a slow walking tour of the forest with a lot of stops, and we would have much rathered walked /hiked around at our own pace and enjoyed the scenery on our own. The area stopped for lunch was hard to find a good meal, and the waterfall was completely underwhelming. I recommend just going to the glowworm caves.

Thank you fo taking the time to submut your review. It is great to hear that you found the glowworm caves amazing and disappointing to hear that you did not find the remainder of the tour so interesting. Over the years we have received very good feedback with regrad to this excrusion, however, as you are aware everyone has different tastes and opinions.
