I would choose this company again for a glow worm tour
Candace_H, Mar 2020
Most important to my husband in choosing which glow worm tour to take was his allowance to bring in all of his camera gear.
So, we took the photography tour and we couldn’t be happier that we did. Heath ,our guide, knows every nook and cranny of his caves and we very much benefited from his knowledge. He’s also very good company. We also got lucky because Heath took tons of very good photos of us and then allowed us to download them for free! Which was so refreshing after being on tours that would try to make extra money from taking your photo.
