Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Take a torch, wear good walking shoes, maintain good balance and visit the glow worm tunnel. Take time to adjust eyes to darkness and enjoy the worms.

So this was a surprise birthday present from my partner... and it was freaking AWESOME! Tom was a wealth of information, the Glow Worms were beautiful and the joy of sitting in the Blue Mountains, in the dark, listening to the sounds of the night really gave this Nature Lover a much needed recharge.

Did this tour last night. The glow worms were so incredible, our guide was super knowledgeable on the flora and fauna in the area. My partner is an animal lover and the guide answered all his questions. He was very respectful of the environment which was good to see because these animals are not a circus act they are wild animals. Would do it again and highly recommend.

We booked the tour knowing nothing about glow worms, has that ever changed! Even though there was only the two of us the guide was very enthusiastic. He took us down into the cavern to a world we never anticipated to see. He was extremely knowledgeable and explained the life cycle of the glow worm as they glowed in abundance on the cavern walls around us! We would definately recommend this tour to anyone that wants a new and unique experience

After booking a tour for 4th February, we were looking forward to this experience especially given all the fantastic reviews. We booked separate transport as per the website guidelines, via TCP Day Tours which was great. However, once we arrived, our guide was late and seemed irritable, probably as there were only the two of us booked on for that evening. We were told that Jochen was unavailable and Aaron led us silently, showing none of the passion or enthusiasm that Jochen gets praised for. There was NO recounting stories, NO teaching/fact sessions, NO knowledge (after asking, he even got the fly lifespan wrong!, NO supervised photo assistance and we even had to ask about getting a view of the glow worms. This 30 minute tour was rather a waste of an evening and over $200 down – it should have been much better.

We were fortunate enough to go on the glow worm tour on Friday night 11th of Jan and had the best experience. We were surprised and impressed by the large amount of glow worms and how close we were able to get, thanks to the intermate viewing platform. The tour guide also amazing, explaining everything to know about glow worms among other species. Would highly recommend taking this tour, would definitely do it again!!

Not only were the glow worms amazing, being out in the bush at night again just added to the experience.
After a shortish walk, we all sat in a decent size cavern in pitch dark totally surrounded by the worms, a tree canopy overhead. It was wonderful to experience them like that, just sitting taking it in as your eyes adjusted and more became visible. In turns we were taken up onto a platform that allowed us to get extremely close to the worms and their webs. To see them up so close and realise just how tiny they really were was totally unexpected.
The added bonus of the night were the stars as we walked out from under the tree canopy, our eyes now adjusted to the night sky.
Jochen went out of his way to give us background information about the worms and their lifecycle as well as to answer questions. Well worth the trip, highly recommended for tourists and locals as you simply don't get to see glow worms like that elsewhere.

Was a rainy and foggy night my wife and I made the journey and we were the only two on the tour Sunday 14th. Very secluded place. Our guide, Jochen, is very passionate and knowledgeable about these little critters, and boy did they put on a show. Maybe some of the other posters have been unlucky, but there were thousands of glow worms that night. Got right up close to view their beautiful dewy webs and sat on a rock amazed by how many were there. The climb down into the canyon is tricky at night, especially in the wet, and is not suitable for wheelchairs, walking sticks/frames or those who have difficulty with steps.
Well worth the trip if you are in the area. Remember that the rain and humidity will often bring more of them out, and if you are lucky you will see as many as we did and love it.
