Really fun adventure underground with the glow worms

Me and my two friends had lots of fun. The tour is a good combination of tubing, cave walking, walking through water, relaxing and adventuring. It does require some fitness and flexibility though most should be okay. You can’t bring a phone or camera although the photos the guide took were good. Thanks!
