Learn about the fascinating human history of magnificent Dunedin. As you travel through the city you will pass the city center, university, and railway station. As you travel along you will see church spires, towers and statues of Dunedin, which is surrounded with green forested hills. Our journey takes us to a golden trail of beaches, a natural harbor, the rollers of the southern Pacific.
And then there is the architecture like no other city in New Zealand, Duneden has the best preserved examples of Victorian and Edwardian design.
We stop and get out of the bus on several occasions for photos including Signal Hill Lookout, Otago University, Baldwin St. (steepest in the world), Dunedin Railway Station, First Church of Otago, St Paul's Catherdral, Robert Burns Statue, Octagon, St.Clair beach, Tomahawk beach, Smails Beach, Otago Harbour lookoutYou may be dropped off in the city rather than at port at the end of the tour. If you choose to be dropped off in the city you will be required to make you own way back to port at your own expense.

Our excellent driver/guide took us all around lovely Dunedin in a comfortable van, with stops at Lookout Mountain (not much to see on that very wet and misty morning) and to go inside several iconic buildings. It was almost a private trip for the two of us, as another couple transferred to a different tour midway through ours. Very convenient pick-up and return to the pier, and points to Back to Nature Tours for not cancelling on account of too few bookings.
It was a great day touring. Had a great guide, I believe his name was Matt. Saw many beautiful beaches and scenery. One of the best tours we have every been on.
We were surprised to be the only 2 on the excursion. The guide offered to go anywhere we wanted and show us whatever we wanted. We saw a large amount of the area around Dunedin, stopped a lot for photos and were able (because the the small amt of people)to ask all of our questions. Could not have asked for a better tour of the Dunedin area!

The guide was great. He had great knowledge and stopping for photographs was never a problem.
