Glowing Adventures are the only cave tour in Waitomo that will let you take a tripod and camera into a glow worm cave that I could find. https://www.glowing.co.nz/photography-tours/ These are private tours for up to 6 people and must be booked well in advance as there are only a couple of slots a day.
On their photography tours, you are allowed to take your big cameras and a tripod in. As such, the parts of caves you are taken into are more open. If you want a more "caving" experience and are OK with a tight squeeze or two, they allow small, point and shoot, cameras to be taken on their other tour. Its a small family business, so you are not tagged and bagged like you are on the bigger tours. It was the highlight of our trip.

All clothing and caving gear is provided.

Really impressive. I wasted rolls of expensive film trying to shoot glow worms. I'll add this place to my list for next time I'm in Godzone.
