      Thrilling open air ride, fantastic views.
      Exhilerating ride through Dunedin, out to Brighton beach and back over Saddle Hill. Interesting commentary, great views. Thrilling to be out in the open and have the wind blowing through our hair. A great ride.

      Awesome ride with a fantastic operator.
      Murray gave us a great ride down the peninsula, tailoring the ride so we could meet up with friends along the way. He is very knowledgeable and, more importantly, an excellent operator of the trike. His friendly, engaging manner was a highlight of the trip and we definitely recommend this experience to anyone happy to get a bit chilly on an exhilarating ride! Great fun!

      Brighton ride
      Most amazing trip ever. We are from Dunedin and have seen it all but seeing it on the back of this V8 bike was the best yet! If you come to or are from Dunedin we highly recommend you see Andrew and get a ride around this beautiful city.

      Went for a family trip for my husband's birthday was a great trip around out st Clair up the hill to blackhead out Brighton up saddle hill which had never been before and great views everywhere we went and then back over motor way through town and back to town. Really amazing trip and had perfect weather as well. Would thoroughly recommend this ride to anyone wanting something different to do in Dunedin.

      Best way to see Dunedin
      I had been on one of the v8tours in Mt Maunganui on a girls trip and l loved it so much and raved about it to my family so when we were planning a South Island trip I looked to see where I could book another tour. So pleased I found Experience Dunedin. These bikes are so perfect to view a new city. Andrew was so knowledgeable and pointed out local landmarks. We loved seeing the gorgeous scenery from the bike. Our kids loved it. Totally recommend it. A great way to show your visitors around or explore if you are travelling through Dunedin.

      Super Trike Tour
      This is a MUST in Dunedin ! I booked Andrew for this tour sometime ago. My wife & myself are on a journey of a lifetime in this beautiful country. It was also my wifes birthday whilst we have been on our 4 week tour of Kiwi Land so wanted a few unexpected surprises. Andrew had been an extremely good business person to liaise with. Always prompt in answering e.mails and being on time for our tour. We had a 2 hour spin of the area where we relied on Andrews knowledge to take us on a breathtaking tour. We stopped at various locations for photos of which he knew some history or entertaining stories relating to our tour. So thank you Andrew for your business platform & making our time in Dunedin with your beautiful machine so memorable.

      Fresh Air and fun
      We got a tour of the city as a gift and had a great time.. All of us.. from 6-66yrs old. Andrew showed us our home town with the wind in our hair and in the comfort and style of a great bike! Definitely worth letting someone else do the driving whether you're visiting Dunedin or a local.. great afternoon ride

      Best Dunedin experience
      Had a fabulous few hours with Andrew. What an awesome way to see the city. Wonderful views with the wind in our hair. The thrill of the V8 engine together with the beautiful Otago Peninsula kept a smile on all our faces for the entire journey. The wind proof jackets Andrew provided were so cozy! We can totally recommend this trip - whether you’re a local, a returning nostalgic uni student or visitor on limited time. Just do it. You won’t regret it.

      Wow! What a great experience with this company and this trike tour of Dunedin. Our driver Murray (sp?) was so nice and shared so much information with us. The trike was great, heated seats, smooth ride. Andrew was lovely to deal with when booking. Great time! Highly recommend.

      Wow! Great fun!
      We did this as a group of four, it was a surprise gift for us. Andrew was great - from the moment we met him and I felt very safe. The bike has seatbelts, helmets are not required. It was an exhilarating ride. Our journey took us to Brighton and then back over the hills where we had amazing views of the Taieri Plain (we stopped for photos at a great spot). I highly recommend Experience Dunedin for a unique drive around town.

      Booked this for Father’s Day for 78yr old Dad, Mum and friend. Incredible! There is simply no better way to see Dunedin. Incredibly professional, safe but oh so exhilarating! Super comfy HEATED buckets seats, we still can’t wipe the smiles off our face. This bike is a beautiful machine. I just can’t rate this experience higher!

      Fantastic Experience
      My husband and I were only in Dunedin for one night and had this tour recommended to us by someone back is Australia. We had an absolutely fantastic time and were able to see so much of Dunedin during this tour. The trike was awesome, making it a thrilling adventure. We will definitely be recommending this tour to everyone heading to Dunedin.

    Wow. Chevy V8, wind in our hair, a 4 seater motor trike as big as a car a friendly tour guide what a great way to see Dunedin my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Andrew is a great guy he ensures you see the best of Dunedin in a one hour ride around the city including the best viewing points. Andrew is in total control of the trike and not surprisingly plenty of people want to wave and smile at you as you drive by. A jacket and sunglasses is all you need plus a desire to enjoy the moment. Book in advance you won't be disappointed.

    Hi GKForrest, Thanks for taking the time to write a review, the trike is a great way to see the city. We are glad you enjoyed the experience. It was great fun having you and your wife on the trike and hitting some balls at the hole in one. I hope you enjoy the rest of your time in New Zealand. Happy Golfing Andrew

    What a ride! The BEST two hours of our many tours. Can't say enough good things about the tour and Andrew. He truly made Dunedin the highlight of our NZ trip. Incredible tour guide, not only did he make sure we were all comfortable, (provided warm jackets, ear warmers), but also is exceptionally knowledgable about the whole area. The absolute highlight of our entire trip. His trike is amazing and so is Andrew. Highly, highly recommend If you are looking for an exciting time and an amazing tour guide. Wish he was in our part of the world - would do this at least once a month.

    Yes, it was a cold day, but who cared with the wind whistling through and around us travelling around and being told about Dunedins quirky and beautiful places. We wer made comfortable and offered everything we'd need to be warm on the ride. How generous was our host too, not only with his knowledge and his time on such a day. It truly was the highlight of our trip and I will be visiting Dunedin again soon I hope.

    This experience was a highlight of our NZ Cruise! Andrew collected us promptly at the ship's berthing and welcomed us to DUNEDIN and explained where and what will see on our V8 trike tour. As the day was a bit chilly and unusually overcast for this time of the year Andrew decked us out with some very warm jackets and we were set to go. To sit on a motorbike with a V8 engine is really something in itself!!..Comfortably strapped into our comfy bucket seats we were off. Andrew gave a running commentary of places ,buildings and historical information as he drove at comfortable speeds. He is very much a proud 5th generation Dunedin resident which showed out in his vast knowledge of the areas. We certainly would recommend this trip as a 'MUST DO' when visiting Dunedin for an exhilarating tour of some 90 minutes covering key areas and more. Thankyou Andrew,
    Peter and Kerrie.

    If we could give six stars we would. Andrew is the perfect host for an hour of exhilarating sightseeing through Dunedin and the surrounding area. This personalised tour is the best way we have seen a destination when we have arrived in a port. Andrew does his best to cater for your every needs and then topped it off by dropping us off at a great little pub near our ship to round the day off. Thanks Andrew you absolutely made our day.

    A month after confirmed booking received an email stating that our tour time was changed. Not asked to change advised they had changed it.
    When it came to the day there was some showers in the morning with the weather predicted to clear for the afternoon (when our tour was changed to) This weather prediction was correct and there was no rainfall in the afternoon.
    Sadly first thing in the morning they saw some rain and cancelled our tour. Seems he doesn't like to get any moisture on his bike. I would recommend only booking this "on the day" as pre booking will likely see your tour cancelled given the South Island is well known for it's rainfall and he cancels if he sees any raindrops.

    Hi SeaDoggy, Thanks for making a booking with us. We did contact you two months before your tour to advise you that we had changed your tour, from 11:00am to 11:45am, because your ship was getting in later than expected. We apologise if this was an inconvenience for you. On the day on the tour there was significant rain in the morning and it was schedule to continue to your tour time. The rain did eventuate with 3.4mm falling in the hour between 11am and 12:00pm We would cancel a tour for .5 mm of rain an hour so your heading is correct. We don’t cancel tours because we don’t want moisture on the trike, we cancel tours because we want customers to be comfortable on the trike and enjoy the tour. Any prepaid tours are fully refined if we have to cancel them. We also refund tours if cruise ships are unable to dock because of weather. Most cruise ship days we are fully booked prior to the day so we don’t agree it is best to book on the day. Dunedin’s rainfall is only moderate and we fulfil the vast majority of tours booked. While disappointed to receive this review we appreciate that all other customers are understanding when it comes to weather. We hope you had better luck with the weather on the rest of your cruise. Regards Andrew Experience Dunedin

    This is a fabulous way to see Dunedin and the surrounding areas at a very reasonable price. An hour is just about right length of time and our host was able to talk to us and provide a commentary even when we were travelling at a good speed, which was exhilarating. Probably not so good if it is cold or raining.

    What a blast. My family & I took a tour of Dunedin with Andrew. He was funny, knowledgeable and really took care of us (especially my wheel chair bound sister!).
    Great fun, he opened the throttle a couple of times for us too 😀
    I would highly recommend doing this - worth the money.

    The operator was very knowledgeable and friendly. He took us safely around Dunedin area. If you get the chance book early because it sells out fast and is worth the cost. The only thing I would recommend is to have the operator wear a microphone and provide a small speaker in the rear for better communication between the riders and driver.

    We stumbled upon Andrew and his motorcycle in the center of town, and decided to spend an hour touring in his very fun motorcycle. There was so much to enjoy: the scenery; the experience of the wind in your hair and BIG views in all directions; and Andrew our guide had a very dry but witty sense of humor. Not too talkative, but definitely willing to befriend us. This was by far the most fun thing we did on our 10 day cruise around New Zealand.
