Delightful
Our tour guide was amazing! Trill was funny, enthusiastic and filled with great information as well as highlights of back doors we would never have found on our own. The day was cool and sunny. She even had for us to see a bit of the octagon square and do a bit of shopping. Fabulous!

Beautiful city!

Julie picked us up at Port Chalmers and took our group on a city tour. She dropped two of us in Dunedin at the train station where we took the historic coastal train through the Otago Peninsula. What a MAGNIFICENT day. Beautiful scenery, breathtaking views Wow Wow WOW!! After our train ride we were picked up by Asta who took us to the Larnach Castle. We toured the home and gardens so it was a real mix of guided and independent sightseeing. Great girls! Terrific day with beautiful weather. Highly recommend we had a great time

Shore Excursion staff on the phones were very helpful and kept in touch via email or phone. We too were anxious if we could fit everything in as we had travelled via the cruise ship. We bartered for an extra trip to the brewery and sure enough we as a family of 6 fitted everything in one day. As long as you dont mind cutting short of 5-10mins except for train trip as you need to plan around that, it will work with the excellent chauffeur who has great knowledge of his great country. We even stopped for 10mins to snap a quick photo of the steepest street.I believe its a trip to do as you get to see how beautiful Dunedin is. Enjoy 😀

We had such great day on our small tour with our local guide Sharon. She was obviously so proud of her city, and told us a lot of interesting facts about it. The tour was great and we loved seeing so much in such a short time.

What a wonderful treat. Asta and Julia escorted us through the beautiful city of Dunedin, the botanical gardens, and the Larnach Castle with such expertise, informativeness and friendliness. It was like visiting family in a city where you had none. Can't recommend this tour and the tour company enough!!!
