This was our third tour of this trip, so some of the beauty of the New Zealand coast was already familiar to us. A special treat was being taken to a path several hundred meters through the dunes to witness the crashing surf up close. Our driver had a tendency to not elaborate on basic facts, so he was not as interesting as most guides we've experienced.

Very nice trip, had the chance to encounter see lions on the beach, also to walk on the steepest street in the world!
Reviewer: Jack Stepp
The excursion gave us a great scenic introduction to the area. Very enjoyable. Fulfilled expectations well. Knowledgeable guide. I recommend it.
We were in Dunedin for the day with our cruise. This tour took us to see many of the highlights in the area that we surely would have missed out on our own. Best was the magnificent beach with seals lounging around.. we ended the tour in Dunedin, spending an hour or so there before returning to the ship. I highly recommend it!

Reviewer: James Donnelly
Really good tour. The driver was very knowledgeable about the history and sites in the area. Even though some roads were steep and narrow, he was a safe and excellent driver. The tour was a great balance of town and country tours. Well worth the money and time.

Reviewer: Louis Suarez
The trip was well worth the money, as the ride and views were amazing. We even stopped on were able to walk on the beach and observed sea lions. We were met by a representative who was very friendly and informative on Dunedin. We would recommend this excursion to any one who can take long walk to the beach and interested in history.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Dunedin with Chris. He was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us a great overview of the history of Dunedin, and the surrounding Bay and Beach area. We had a beautiful day. This was one of the highlights of our trip. We highly recommend this tour.

Good tour of Dunedin and the beaches. Got to see seals on the beach. It would have been nice if we could have spent more time in Dunedin itself.

The Tour was reasonably priced, on time and was very enjoyable. It was easy to book and so glad we booked our excursion with Shore Excursions. Will be booking more with them on our next cruise.
Reviewer: Evangeline Hidalgo
I booked for 6 of us for this Excursion. They were right on time, very nice tour guide and there were only a total of 8 passengers on the tour group. Very detailed and very nice tour. We were all very happy that we took booked this excursion.
Reviewer: Susan Emanuel
Our guide Adam grew up on a farm in the area and was exceedingly familiar with history, flora & fauna, and the penguin hospital. An ideal tour
Reviewer: Garth Holmes
Excellent informative tour in small group by Owner - great experience

We got off to a rocky start. Our small group of 8 waited over 1/2hr only to be told there was a delay but they were on their way. 1 of the 2 busses had broken down. Eventually our guide arrived & we were in our way. He was a very friendly young man & a local studying & living with his young family for many yrs in the area so was very knowledgeable about the areas we were visiting for the day. We visited old railway stations & lookouts over beautiful bays, drove through gorgeous countryside to the beach. On the beach were sea lions of different sizes & penguin nesting areas. I would definitely recommend this day trip to anyone interested in seeing the beautiful sights of Dunedin. The only reason I don't give it a 5 star rating is the lateness off the guide & the fact he had a bad cold, hence while traveling in a confined bus for some hrs my husband & I consiquently caught it as did 2 other passengers.
Interesting guide with entertaining banter.
Dunedin is a charming town, but you could easily walk around it in an hour or so self-guided. The real value of this tour is to see the peninsula and its beautiful beaches and local wildlife. That is mostly birds, although sea lions and sometimes penguins are there as well. It's just very beautiful, a small van with excellent guides and enough leisurely walking to feel as if you were not just captive on a buss.
The tour guide was very accommodating. My husband is handicapped and he took his light weight scooter in and out of the bus for him at every stop. He was very knowledgeable about the area. It was my first experience booking with shore excursions and I would definitely book with them again

Very interesting. Learned a lot about New Zealand. Got to experience some things that we would not have on our own.

Reviewer: Go everywhere
big buses can't go where these smaller tour vehicles can go
The knowledge of our guide, the uniqueness of the tour and the once in life time experience of actually seeing sea lions on the beach was beyond our expectations.
Reviewer: Dave's Raves
Great Value, small groups, interesting and friendly guides. Sure beats the large bus tours by the cruise ships.
It was fun seeing the beach with the sea lions laying around in their natural habitat.
Mark our guide was great. Very likable and knowledgeable on the Dunedin area. He took the time to make us feel comfortable and we did not feel rushed. Keep up the outstanding work.

The driver/toor guide was excellent. We enjoyed this excursion very much
Reviewer: Carol from California
Well organized, good tour guides, good value.
The small bus drove through a beautiful very scenic route. It would be enjoyed more if more stops were included with a few minutes time to take a few pictures and enjoy the scenery.
Even though the car that was to pick us up was one hour late, the replacement driver was a great guide and gave us the complete tour and made sure we were back to the ship in time.
