Amazing!
Feb 2020 • Couples
I cannot rate this tour highly enough! Lucy was an incredible guide, and extremely kind! We were delayed due to weather for hours, and she was kind enough to wait for us to arrive and rearranged the schedule to include the best things we could do in the amount of time we had! We were able to see so much of Dunedin, including the highlights of the city and wildlife! Thank you Lucy!

Wonderful Tour of Dunedin
Jan 2020
Lucy did a great job showing us the port and city of Dunedin. We walked the world's steepest street and visited the most spectacular beaches (i.e. Sandfly Bay, Allen and Tunnel Beaches). Got to see the Sea Lions and great hikes to the beaches. Warning to those a little less fit: Might take a pass on some of the hikes. Especially, Tunnel Beach. Loved it. Highly recommend.

A fantastic day of activity and sightseeing. Lucy was a gracious and knowledgeable host. I would highly recommend this tour to any first time (or second time) visitors to Dunedin. A jam-packed fun filled day.

Top excursion
Lucy promptly picked up my wife and I and another couple promptly, and off we went to Dunedin. Stopped at some overlooks and the world's steepest street for pics, and then walked around the original buildings of the U. of Otago. On to the Octagon for more great Victorian architecture, followed by first church, and the fabulous railroad station. Then to Sandfly Beach and Allan's beach to view the sea lions. Lunch at Lanarch Castle and view the gardens, and then to majestic views of Tunnel Beach. We were able to get this all in on our day in port, and Lucy provised good commentary on it all. Just be ready for some steep grades if you choose to walk to Sandfly and Tunnel Beach.

Excellent tour
Mar 2019 • Couples
We visited Dunedin on a cruise. I had arranged this tour independently through viator. Lucy met us at the port in her comfortable mini van. There were 5 people in total on our tour ourselves (a couple) a single traveller and a couple from another cruise ship. We were taken to a stunning viewpoint for photos then a comprehensive tour of Dunedin including the railway station, Baldwin street, the Octagon and first Church of Otago. We had a small amount of time to look around the town independently. We then visited the beautiful Sandfly bay where we saw sea lions. This was followed by a visit to the stunning gardens of Lanarch Castle where we had time for lunch. We finished our tour with a visit to tunnel beach. The tour did involve some walking and good shoes are suggested. You would have to be fairly fit to visit the beaches as they are a bit of a walk from the road and the return journey is up steep hills (20 minutes). I understand a slightly different itinerary can be offered for the less able - you may need to make that clear at booking. Overall a great day. Lucy was a friendly and polite guide. We also enjoyed meeting and talking the other members of our group. This was such a good, almost private tour which was great value for money and my personal favourite day of our entire cruise.

Wonderful Tour!
Jan 2019 • Couples
Our cruise ship was delayed 2 hours due to fog in the harbor. Lucy was great about rearranging the schedule to fit in what we most wanted to do. Her car is comfortable. We saw the seals at sandfly beach, tunnel beach, had lunch and wandered around at the castle, saw the train station, church, steepest street and had a beautiful drive back. She made sure we got that all in and got back to the ship in time for departure. Very knowledgeable and friendly.

A wonderful tour of Dunedin city and surrounds
Nov 2018 • Solo
Lucy & Al were fantastic and informative hosts who offer a great day of beautiful beaches and historic sites. Wear your walking shoes as the walks to some of the beaches are steep and lengthy however they are not compulsory and you are free to sit up top and enjoy the view instead. The grounds of larnach castle are stunning and well worth the visit, with good lunch options available in their cafe.
Thanks guys, was a great day!

Plenty of highlights on this excellent tour of Dunedin and surrounds
Oct 2018 • Friends
Lucy provided an excellent way to see the best of Dunedin and surrounds with a personalised tour in a very comfortable vehicle. Over the course of 5 hours we were amazed at the variety in the points of interest and close proximity to the city. Seeing seals up close was one of many highlights!

Amazing day of exploration!
Aug 2018 • Couples
Thanks Lucy for an unforgettable day! We had a great time seeing Dunedin and surrounding sights. The highlight was getting up close with the seals, who were all too happy to pose for selfies :) The car was comfortable and we toured with 2 other happy travellers. We were not rushed at all. Highly recommend! Xxx
