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
