Glowing Adventures reviews
This was spectacular! I had learned about the glow worms many years ago and wanted to make sure we got to experience them properly. The tour through Glowing Adventures was definitely the right way.... more »

My family and I had an outstanding experience with Glowing Adventures. Ash was extraordinarily warm to us and proved to be a very passionate and experienced guide. He led us through multiple portions of the caves to find the perfect spot to view the glow worms. It was like being under a night sky in the cave. I can’t describe the awe we felt to be in such a beautiful and tranquil place. This activity was at the top of the list of things we enjoyed on our trip to New Zealand. We felt welcomed from beginning to end and will visit again for sure. PS-Ash, you weren’t kidding about being able to see glow worms along rivers. The path to Hot Water Beach on Mercury Bay was a mirror to the stars over our heads. Amazing! We would never have thought to look along the river if you hadn’t pointed out it was another of their habitats. I took a terrible picture of it (last one). Happy New Year guys!
We had a fantastic experience with Ash! Since we took the photography tour, Ash was extremely patient when I was setting up the tripod and camera settings. We had great conversations along the way as well. I highly recommend this tour as you will be in way smaller groups, and have enough time to enjoy the beauty of the glow worms, instead of rushing through everything with a larger and potentially louder group. Next time we would take the other tour they have, the one they took you walk through the cave. Very pleasant people!! Enjoyed every single moment!!
