    The experience was awesome, the tour guides were energetic and funny (bad jokes alert). While making your experience memorable and fun, they make sure your safety is always at their first piority, you feel that you are in save hands. They also take very nice photos for you. At the end of the trip, there’s a hot shower, hot soup and bagel to warm you up!

    Black water rafting was a very fun and unique experience. We maneuvered our way through the dark cave of various degree of water depth using touches on our helmets. Some parts even required us to jump off mini waterfall with a tube. The best part of the tour was to watch the glow worms while floating on the tube (the glow worms were like starry night sky in the dark cave). We also enjoyed the hot tomato soup and bagel at the end of our tour (which was cold). Happy to book through klook which is reliable and cheaper.

    This is a unique experience, you get a little bit cold, yes, it's true, but totally worth it!Apart from the glowworm lightning, everything is well prepared, you get to drink hot orange juice with chocolate to get warmer and the guides make you dance and everything, so fun! Everyone definitely must do this!
