We booked a half day private guide and had Asta for our guide who drove us around Dunedin town and up to the Peninsula in a very comfortable Mercedes people carrier. Asta was superb, very knowledgeable, passionate and a real pleasure to be with for the day. She was flexible regarding starting time which was really appreciated, and very accomodating regarding the itinerary. After a brief visit around town, we visited the lovely botanical gardens, and then headed up to the Peninsula where we were in for a real treat. As a last minute request, we asked to visit a beach in an attempt to spot a Sea Lion, and we were treated with a close up view of several of these amazing creatures. Thank you Asta for a wonderful day.

Spent the day with Asta seeing some fantastic scenery before stopping for the best Fish and Chips we've ever had. She navigated the roads like an expert while filling our heads with history of Dunedin. Recommend the boat ride.

I contacted Fantail because we needed to be sure that we could be met at the cruise ship with a vehicle that could accommodate my husband's knee rover, and could be flexible to deal with whatever mobility issues he still faced at the time of the tour. Asta really delivered--we saw the City Highlights, but because we were especially interested in wildlife we concentrated on the Peninsula and fitting in the wildlife cruise. We had a lovely time and saw a lot-- fur seals, dolphins blue penquins, albatross and many other birds. She even did an extra stop so we could get the New Zealand Wine for a gift since this was our last port of call. Full Service! We especially appreciate her informed commentary and ease of conversation. Comfortable and fun!

We were able to customize this tour to see exactly what we wanted to see and really packed an incredible amount into 1 day. We did the cadbury tour, Dunedin city sites, wildlife cruise, Larnach castle and stopped for great fish and chips (recommended by our guide). Our guide Asta was very knowledgable and super friendly. We would definitely recommend Fantail and go with them again!

Asta, our guide, was excellent and well informed. Showed us all the highlights of of her city and was very passionate about the area. Tour included a boat trip to the albatross nesting area and viewing of other wildlife. She was very flexible about what we were interested in seeing. Recommend highly. Very comfortable vehicle as well as I am 6' 5" tall.

I am a seasoned traveler but never write any reviews. However this time I’m making an exception as we had such wonderful experience. We are a small party of just a Mum and a young child and Asta was able to custome made our tour to make it enjoyable for both of us. We felt very well looked after, it was such fun for my son with all the wildlife he could see in real life and the beautiful Dunedin heritage for me. Our guide was most knowledgeable and we could see her real passion for the place. We want to come back as soon as we can.
