We came in rainy October and the original booking and then the day after got canceled. Luckily we gave it one more try. Because of all the rains we were super up close to the glow worms and got a great experience.

A lovely cruise and commentary on the LakeTe Anau. The caves were a lot easier to access than we thought. Enjoyed the boat and glow worms.
