Awesome Tour
March 24, 2023
The day was wonderful’ We had a great tour guide who was very knowledgeable. We were able to see everything including a beach trip to see the sea lions!! We consider ourselves lucky to have been able to see the yellow eyed penguins and the albatross in the wild.

This excursion was fantastic! The guide was excellent, knowledgeable and fun! Everything went perfectly. The Castle was beautiful. We had just the right amount of time there. The Penguins were beautiful and the Albatrosses just amazing. I highly recommend this tour.

Our guide Ollie was the best!

Although we didn't see many penguins, our guide Ollie was terrific! He took us to see lots of sites around Dunedin, gave us clear instructions as to when to be back at the bus at each stop, and told us lots of interesting information while we were driving around. Ollie was by far the best guide we had on our whole cruise trip around New Zealand. We had a great day!

Absolutely marvelous! Our guide Ben was perfect, a little humor and a lot of knowledge. His pace was spot on for all our stops too. He shared knowledge of the local history, as well as plant and animal life. Extremely impressive!

Much to see and do

This tour covered a lot of places and gave you a taste of many things in Dunedin. There were great views at Signal Hill and the Albatross center and lots of great countryside, especially the Ortago Peninsula. The Larnach Castle was more like a mansion but very interesting to see how rich people lived and it had a nice view and nice garden area. We also got to see many sea lions along a beautiful coastline and a couple of penguins. We had a brief run through the city and stopped at the Rail Station. The architecture and construction are outstanding with intricate design and colors especially the stain glass windows and mosaic tile floors.
