A tour through two of Waitomo's most fascinating caves.
This private tour takes you on a scenic drive through to one of New Zealand's most fascinating destinations - Waitomo.
The tour starts with a pick-up from your cruise ship port and sets off through some of New Zealand's most picturesque country and farm-land to arrive at Waitomo, home of the glow worms.
Here you will set off on the "Twin Cave Tour" combining Waitomo's famous glow worm caves and the beautiful Aranui Cave. This educational tour starts off with their world famous boat ride through Waitomo's Glow Worm Caves before venturing into the hidden entrance of the Aranui Cave - here you will discover some of Waitomo's largest public stalactites and stunning rock formations.
