Stunning REAL Rotorua
Jun 2021
We had such a fantastic evening with Stephen on this tour! The highlight of our trip and the reason we decided to go to Rotorua again. Despite being Winter and raining, it was such an adventure!!. If you want a more intimate REAL experience, rather than dealing with large crowds of people this is an experience to book for sure.
My 8-year-old was completely enthralled and had so much fun on this walk, the forest, the waterfall, having 2 different torches to lead the way and the stunning display of nature when we arrived at the glow worms. SO GOOD!
Thank you Stephen!

Highlight of our trip
Mar 2021
We had an amazing evening with Stephen on the glow worms tour. My 6yo who is normally pretty scared of the dark loved every minute. We saw so many glow worms and were able to get up close to see all the wee details along with many other nocturnal bush creatures. We were also treated to the BEST hot chocolate under the stars at the end of the tour. I would definitely do this tour again and recommend it to all my friends and family.

Stars within the forest
Mar 2021 • Couples
Absolutely incredible experience! Stephen has a knack for the small things - very personal tour. Lots of knowledge on fauna and fauna and his secret glow worm hideaways. If you are after something to do at night in Rotorua that doesn’t involve crowds of people - this is it. The hot chocolate under the stars was a magical touch at the end. Thanks Stephen for an epic experience. Couldn’t recommend highly enough!

A walk through the stars
Feb 2021
Amazing experience! Kiwi born and bred and I love a day time bush walk, but this was another world! Stephen guided us (our daughter aged 5) through an exciting tour that my daughter is still calling 'a walk through the stars'. The glow worms up close were spectacular, the knowledge Stephen had was powerful and engaging and the path we followed turned up surprise after surprise. Loved it!

Fun night jungle walk
Feb 2021 • Couples
We saw so many glow worms, it looked like a starry night sky. Even though it was raining, the tour was great. We walked over streams, past waterfalls, learned about the plants, and saw a wallaby. We had hot chocolate at the end which was perfect after the rain.

Wonderful Evening Walk
Jan 2021
We had the most wonderful evening with Stephen. He picked us up from our accommodation and took us (a family of four, kids aged 13 and 11) to the forest, stopping on the way to catch the beautiful sunset over the lake. The walk through the dark forest was fascinating and exciting, and we got to see a beautiful waterfall and learn about the plants and animals in the forest as we walked, not to mention the absolutely stunning and incredibly numerous glowworms! A brilliant evening - we would highly recommend it. And the hot chocolate at the end was the cherry on the cake! Thank you Stephen.

Awesome to have you recommend my tour. A night walk through a native forest is hard to beat, you never know what you may encounter that's what I love about it. Thanks for supporting small business. Cheers Stephen

Up Close with the Glow worms!
Jan 2021 • Couples
best glow worm tour i have done so far, (much better than the glow worm caves and the Kayak) walking through the forest at night and getting real close to the glow worms. Stephen was very friendly, knowledgeable and well prepared with all the equipments (torches, raincoats, gum boots). he also took some amazing night photos for us. the whole walk was about 1hour and half, the terrain was easy, suitable for all ages. definitely worth the time!
P.S. real nice hot chocolate at the end too. :)
