My partner and I did this tour yesterday and we had a bunch of fun, the paradise cave was beautiful and the dark cave was incredible - be sure to wear a dark or old pair of swimmers for the dark cave because it will get messy. Alternatively you can buy swimmers at the local shop. Our tour guide was fantastic with a great sense of humour. The food at the cafe we had lunch at was delicious with a wide variety for vegetarians and meat lovers. It's worth looking into doing the tours without a guide that works about to be much cheaper with all the perks of kayaking, zip-lining etc. It was just easier to do the tour as the national park is huge.
