Rotorua & Waitomo Sightseeing Coach Tour | Waitomo Glowworm Express

Rotorua & Waitomo Sightseeing Coach Tour | Waitomo Glowworm Express

Travel from Auckland south through the rich farmland of the Waikato to the world famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves (lunch available as a prebooked option - vegetarian and other dietary options available on request).

Journey underground on a subterranean adventure through limestone chambers and passages. Be suspended in awe and silence, surrounded by cave decorations and a galaxy of tiny living lights found in the Waitomo Glowworm Caves.

As you glide quietly beneath the lights of thousands of glowworms, it is only the gentle sound of dripping water that reminds you that you are deep underground and not beneath a star filled sky. Return to Auckland in the afternoon.

For over 100 years Waitomo Glowworm Caves have attracted millions of people from all over the world. The moment you enter this subterranean wonderland you'll discover an ancient underground labyrinth of limestone caves and grottos, and marvel at amazing stalactites and stalagmites - mother nature's decorations created by nature.

Well I enjoyed the Tour but it was a very tight scheduled day, which I understand has to be to a certain extent. We had 3/4 hour to do the caves plus eat lunch plus see the shop. I admit I am quite slow, that's because of health reasons so it was actually a hard day for me someone more energetic would have enjoyed it better. But thank you anyway.

We loved it. It was a comfortable drive through the beautiful rural New Zealand landscape and our driver told us a lot of fascinating things that we really appreciated learning about. The caves themselves were great and it was lovely to be able to really feel close to the geology and the glowworms, rather than feeling like we were cramped into isolated viewing platforms. We really felt immersed. Our guide there was friendly and warm, and made a point of coming to say hello to us again at the end at lunch which was lovely. The boat ride was a great point of interest, and it was a very surreal experience. Everyone was punctual and we arrived back in Auckland ahead of schedule. A+
