    Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
    Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
    When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
    Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Lucy was our tour guide and did a really nice job. We saw almost everything written in our guidebook. That said, it did feel a little rushed and we would have preferred a little more time to see the Albatross or the penguins. I didn't realize that the stop at the Albatross center was another added cost to go in, but we were able to see some flying from the free platform which was great. She was patient with us stopping to take photos and her lunch recommendation at the castle was nice (albeit very late and SLOW service but a nice place nonetheless).

    I enjoyed going to the beach and getting close to seals very much. I live on the coast of NC and enjoy beaches. We do not have seals in NC. I was able to get close to seals on the beach. I also enjoyed walks to see birds.

    I also saw a lot of different types of birds on the tour. The Royal Albatross Center was also great.

    The tour of the City as also good.

    The tour operator was excellent. She had a vast knowledge of the area, its history, and wildlife. I would recommend her to anyone booking a ship tour from Dunnedin (Port Chalmers). She provided a much longer tour than in the tour advisor booking based on our ship being in port longer than many ships. She would have spent another hour on tour, but the other couple wanted to return to the ship. She also found a post office for the other couple to mail postcards.

    The tour was carefully planned and we had a wonderful time. However, this tour would have been much better had we had a guide to accompany us to the sites we visited. We had dinner with a couple that did basically the same tour with a guide that DID accompany them and they learned a lot and knew so much that we did not.

    Lucy was a knowledgeable tour guide, and we were shown the highlights of Dunedin, which made for an awesome diverse experience. Nothing was too much trouble, and the small group of five made the excursion even better. I loved seeing the sea lions and historical buildings, but I would've liked more time at Larnach Castle to explore the gardens.

    We saw sea lions, many different birds and lots of sheep! Our guide brought us to multiple spots in Dunedin, including Larnach Castle, Baldwin Street (steepest in the world), and a couple of shallow inlets. The vistas all around were stunning!

    Lucy is an amazing tour guide, and really nice pre-arrival communication too. She ensures that we get to see the best of what Dunedin has to offer on this 1-day tour. She is really knowledable and will take you to the location where there is a higher chance to see wildlife, especially sea lions and the birds. We had a great day with her and i will definitely recommend exploring Dunedin with Lucy.

    A fantastic day where we were able to see many different things in and around Dunedin. Lucy shared her knowledge of the local area and was informative and interesting. We really enjoyed seeing the different buildings in Dunedin, the wildlife and also Larnach Castle. The views of the area were also beautiful. Thank you Lucy for a wonderful day!

    We spent a fabulous day with James on this tour. What an amazing time! James is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. By the end of the day you have learned so much and in such a well orchestrated way. He was flexible and easy going. The pace was perfect…not too rushed and not too slow.

    Lucy was a great guide and the all the stops along the way were beautiful and interesting. Perfect blend of city views, beaches and wildlife. Baldwin street was very fun! Lunch at Larnach Castle was lovely and the learning about the history was very interesting. Seeing albatrosses and sea lions was icing on the cake. We also made some great friends on the tour. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Dunedin!

    Great tour around Dunedin landmarks and beyond. We saw a bit of everything, it was very comprehensive. Really great day out. We got up close to sea lions. Saw some beautiful birds. It was a lovely experience with Lucy as our guide.
