Tour Details

A fulfilling day of iconic landmarks and scenic lookout begins with a visit to the world's steepest street, Baldwin Street, before strolling the vibrant University of Otago campus. Thereafter, you'll explore the breathtaking Dunedin Grand Railway Station to see the Taieri Gorge Train. After spending time in the Octagon section of town, you'll travel by St. Clair Beach for a great view. For the grand finale, you'll explore the brilliant Larnach Castle and its spectacular garden. Travelers wanting to make true memories in New Zealand will enjoy this comprehensive Dunedin tour.

A visit to Baldwin Street, noted by Guinness Book of World Records as the steepest street in the world, begins your guided adventure. You may walk up, or be driven to the top. The corner boutique at the top has interesting wares on display.

Next, you'll head to University of Otago to see the old clock tower building, before your visit to the Grand Railway Station. Erected in 1906, the Flemish renaissance styled station resembles a giant, white gingerbread house. Inside, you may find the old Taieri Gorge train. This comfortable train still provides epic views as it crosses the Taieri plains to climb the Taieri Gorge.

You will have time to purchase lunch at one of the many restaurants in the trendy Octagon district of town before traveling to St. Clair Beach. Hugging the beach is a picturesque esplanade; at nearly two miles long, you'll have plenty of space for a lovely walk and possibly see a surfer.

For the grande finale, ride along the scenic Otago Peninsula high road to Larnach Castle. Built in the Gothic Revival style in 1875, the castle features five spectacular gardens. You will have a guided tour of the entire manor, from the gun room to the gardens. Reserve this lovely outing to create your Dunedin memories.

Overall Excellent! Small group with timely pickup and friendly guide. Husband/Wife team. Very knowledgeable long time resident with extension travel and tour experience. Saw everything mention on tour description and more including their son dancing to Scottish bagpipes. After tour still had time to see some of Dunedin on our own.
