From February 9th 2021 we will temporarily be offering only private/group and photography tours. These tours are available on request, by emailing contact@glowing.co.nz with your preferred date and time.

We do understand this change is an inconvenience but unfortunately our bookings are down 95% compared to pre-covid levels. That unfortunately means we can't afford to keep operating the way we used to. We thank you for your understanding and hope we will eventually be able to return to normal operation. Please do contact us if you are interested in a tour. We would love to hear from you!

Our People

Ash, Heath, and Millie at Glowing Adventures, Waitomo Michelle and Stefan from Glowing Adventures, Waitomo

Michelle works in the office at Glowing Adventures. If you phone us it’s very likely you’ll speak with Michelle. She looks after our visitors, runs the safety briefings for every tour, takes all the bookings, and generally does all the little things that keep things running smoothly. Michelle has three teenage children and lives in Te Awamutu.

Ash is our Operations Manager and Cave Guide here at Glowing Adventures. Ash began cave guiding back when he left high school. Since then he has had a few different jobs and is enjoying being back guiding and meeting many interesting people from all over the world. Ash has 3 small children and lives in Te Kawa. In his spare time he can be found out in the bush hunting and is also a keen fisherman. Ash has a great sense of humour and is often trying his new dad jokes out on our poor customers!

Fran is our mum. She lives about 5 minutes down the road and comes to help us out in the office from time-to-time. We are super lucky to have her support, she is our biggest fan and not biased at all!

Millie is our guard dog here at Glowing Adventures. She is a Sydney Silky crossed with a Maltese and enjoys running out to greet our customers when they arrive. Millie is often found lying in the sun or chasing flies. Mostly we think she does a great job of looking cute.
