The glow worms were fascinating and the place was nice and clean. Our tour guide was informative and knew what she was doing. We were however, overcharged and it was, in our opinion a little overpriced for what it was at the correct price. The...More

It was an ok cute tour through. Very man made but well done. Tour guides are lovely. People taking the tour were noisy and couldn't/wouldn't control their children in the dark which ruined the experience a lot

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I realised the caves weren't natural caves, but I was simply blown away, it is such a magical experience.

The background and information was great made enjoyable by the knowledge and interaction with the guide. I think planning a visit to fit in with other activities in the area is advised.

Quite a long drive to this little man=made glow worm cave. The guide was really good and it's worth a visit only if you are in the area or a convenient stop to see glow worms (not in their natural habitat).

Hi Fransiska, The glow worm cave is a controlled environment and therefore is not affected by the seasons. Tours take up to 20 people per tour and depart every half hour. To book a tour we require 10 or more people. You can... More

it's totally safe. We watched a short video and spent about 30min in the cave. The guide was attentive and helpful, so not to worry. Not flash light though 😉
