    Great trip, friendly staff. Kids and adults both enjoyed seeing the glow worms!

    When I first booked this trip, my adult children thought I was nuts. Afterwards....they apologized! This was a great tour. From the boat ride over....to the peacefully calm moments sitting in complete darkness...looking flow of these little creatures above us like stars. And no one even mentions the rushing river and waterfalls in the cave! Really a fun trip. I highly recommend!
