Description

Our awesome Waitomo adventure is tucked away “off the beaten track” on our family farm and we LOVE it that way and so do our guests.

Avoid the tourist crowds - our 3 hour guided tours are for small groups. You can explore magical glow worm displays and stunning limestone formations in their purest form and at your own pace.

With no concrete paths or electric lighting, this is a genuine wilderness experience. You’ll be taken through pristine native bush into the heart of New Zealand’s magical glow worm environment.

You’re welcome to bring a small camera along on your tour. We’ll even email you awesome photos of your adventure afterwards for free.

Our staff are friendly and approachable, so there is never a worry with a special request, advice on what to do, or just general chit chat over a cup of coffee.

What are you waiting for … Come and find out what makes this the 5 star experience everyone is talking about!

Not suitable for elderly or anyone with mobility issues, tour involves walking through water and over rocks. A reasonable level of fitness is required.

You have to book this tour if you are in NZ! This family owned business takes great care of their customers from start to finish! We loved the underground caves - learning about the land, the limestone structures, seeing the stalagmites and of course, seeing the glow worms! Our guide was excellent and you can tell he loves what he does. Thus tour rigorous so not for those who have difficulty with mobility or claustrophobia! Highly recommend this trip for a small group personal experience!
