Breathtaking

We drove from Taupo to Waitomo via mangakino, stunning scenery! The Ruakura guided walking tour is a must! Mitch our guide was knowledgeable, easy to communicate with and comedic too. All in all a great guy who is passionate about what he does. The caves, wow. Prepare yourself for a cathedral like experience with breathtaking formations, underground rivers and streams. The walking is easy due to the excellent safe walkways that are wheelchair friendly. The Glow worms were the icing on the cake. We did the loop track via Kuratau/Turangi and again wow, the scenery didn't disappoint. We have the day out a solid 10/10

We had an excellent tour guide who was highly knowledgeable about Ruakuri. Having been to both caves, we much preferred this tour to the one at Waitomo.

The explanation by the guide was very good and clear . However I find that the group was a bit too big and many in the back could not listen to what the guide said . The meeting point stated in the website differed from the place we were redirected to go .

Our guide Jim was such a lovely guy and so knowledgeable. He really made our tour memorable. Amazing to be so far underground and discovering the hidden treasures under there. Well worth doing this tour
