My family really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was humorous and informative, the cave was amazing. Although a little challenging with stairs and areas required to duck, well worth the visit. Glow worms are spectacular too.

I hadn't done a cave tour before in my life and I had so much fun. It is like entering another world, everything is so different, the smells and feel, you have to experience it to understand. Lots of fun!!
