    We do not see any reviews until they are published on Trip Advisor. It may have been misplaced so may need to be redone.

    Hi, phone 06478787641 or google waitomo caves guest lodge and get to our site that way. Trip advisor does not allow us to put our website link here as they want us to pay for extra services from them!!!
