What people are saying about Ruakuri Cave
I booked this tour in error. But what an awesome error it was. From the time we arrived until we left it was one amazing thig after another. Pippin was the best Guide. She displayed incredible knowledge. She was really funny and made so sure that everyone was having a good time. 10/10. Will definitely recommend
Well worth a visit. Our Guide, Katie, was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The Ruahura Caves would be my recommendation to anyone wanting the complete package. Glowworms as well as Stalagmites, Stalegtights and more. Take good footwear and plenty of room in your camera. It's even wheelchair accessible
We thought we new a lot about the caves when actually we didn’t. Great experience. With no tourists in NZ it was lovely for us to be the tourist. Our guild knew his stuff about the cave he spoke as if it was his own cave which shows me he has so much respect for it.
We were fortunate at the time of going through as there were no tourist from overseas due to Covid nor was it school holidays, so we were able to enjoy to tour with our guide who was brilliant, she was able to give us the time to explain everything
We had a fantastic time educational fun and awe inspiring limestone formations. Guide Pippin was informative and finished with a amazing hobbit Pippin's song back up the spiral to demonstrate the acoustics - beautiful- thank you.
