Having driven past this site hundreds of times over the years we decided to do the tour while staying in Kaikoura for the weekend. We were both impressed by the cave and the tour guides knowledge.

Awesome tour, our guide Nick was a wealth of knowledge and pointed out a lot of interesting rock formations, the stalactites and stalagmites were beautiful, can't believe how many times I've driven past this wonderful place and not known about it.
