          Thanks for your kind words. Waitomo Caves Village is a very pleasant area and we are so pleased you enjoyed the early morning bird song chorus. It is what we intended when we planted the shrubs to attract the bellbirds, tuis, grey warblers etc.

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