It ended up raining as we through the rainforest, but that seemed to only add to the trip. Thank goodness it was at the end because everyone was soaked, but everyone was happy. The glow worms were definitely the highlight of the trip. Along with the stop for lunch on your own at the cute little town before the glow worms. Highly enjoyed my time.

We had a great day out! Brian, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, lovely to have a chat with and brought everything to make the day successful (like umbrellas and water). Everything was well organised, like the tour at the glow worm cave and lunch. The day’s activities were varied and well planned, with the most beautiful walk last and the longest trip in the bus at the end, when we were tired. Thank you so much for the awesome day!

An enjoyable and relaxing day walking in the rainforest!

Had two wonderful walks in the rainforest to see all those special plants and rivers and waterfalls. Our guide was really nice to introduce to us fun facts about different plants and animals, and even stopped for us to listen to the birds. A really enjoyable day away from the hustle and bustle!
