Kawiti Glow Worm Caves Reviews & Ratings
Facinating. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and very interesting to listen to. Never seen glow worms before and was beautiful to see. NO PHOTOS ALLOWED.
This place was amazing and the bush walk after it was great, our guide Harry (i think) was really nice and a cool guy. The caves were greater than i expected and were so amazing.
Very good. We had heard of many 'fake' glow worms in NZ but these are the real deal. I managed to find one at shoulder height and inspect it. No stickers here! The guides are very nice friendly people too, and was far cheaper than other places.
It was an informative, safe and convenient way to see glow worms. Added bonus that the family running the cave tours are ancestral heirs to the cave.
Great tour with very knowledgeable tour guides..You are not allowed to photograph the glow worms at it actually harms them, but they definitely stay in your memory forever..breathtakingly beautiful! I have a disability and found I was able to manage this tour as they walk slowly and you have rails to hang on to the entire way.. SPOILER ALERT: Interesting story of an old Maori woman who many years ago used to live in this cave..you can still see existence of her camp to this day! Very fascinating!
