This was definitely one of the coolest things I did in NZ. I mean, where else can you go tubing, underground, in a glow worm cave? I did the Black Labyrinth tour, which lasted about 3 hours or so. Our guides were Lucas and Jah--funny guys and good leaders who were very knowledgeable about the caves and the surrounding area. There was a lot of rainfall in the days prior to the trip, so the water was running high, which made the ride all the more exciting. The water didn't even really feel all that cold. It was initially when we first jumped in, but once we got going we got distracted by what was going on around us and forgot about being cold. Watching the glow "worms" twinkling up high on the cave ceilings was magical. And the hot showers and complimentary hot soup and bagels at the end was much appreciated. An experience I won't forget! Would do again if I make it back up to Waitomo!
