Very good experience, especially if you haven't seen glowworms or been cave diving before. Zipling and harness lowering were unfortunately too short as you only get one run of each. Tour guides were great and they saved the best (waterfall climb) for last. Front desk service staff could do with some work though as they appeared apathetic and never even smiled.

Brilliant. Amazing. Great friendly and helpful guides. Magical moment being dragged backwards in inner tubes in the cold cave water whilst staring up at the ceiling of glittering glow worms. Colder than I expected. A little more physically demanding than expected. But oh so worth it 👍👍👍😊😁
