    Great day in Dunedin
    Very enjoyable, informative tour with historian guide who knew all about the history of Larnach Castle. Also had the opportunity to walk up Baldwin Street, the steepest street in the world and to visit the historical Dunedin Railway Station. Went for a delicious lunch at the Luna Bar & Restaurant where we had great food and fabulous views. Excellent tour of Larnach Castle as well.

    A great tour with a knowledgeable local expert
    Our excursion with Gregor was wonderful. He picked us up front the cruise terminal and made it as easy as possible. He drove us throughout the city telling us interesting facts about each place, we went to Baldwin St., took a quick cemetery tour, had a fabulous lunch with an even better view, visited the train station, scenic overlooks, and ended with a guided tour of Larnach castle. He was a wealth of knowledge and was very efficient with the time. He had menus from the restaurant in his van and called our orders in so they were waiting on us when we arrived. It was great. He had us back at the ship right on time.

    Dunedin Done Right
    Gregor was fantastic! He was exceptionally knowledgeable, joyful and full of wonderful facts and stories. Our tour began at the Larnach family tomb with many stories. We then went to the Dunedin Train Station, what a treasure! Next we went to Baldwin Street, the steepest street in the world. We were given the option to climb. What an experience! He took us to lunch at a small intimate restaurant with a view of Dunedin. We finished our tour at Larnach Castle. Gregor’s descriptions and historical knowledge made the experience exceptional. Being on a small group tour, we never felt rushed anywhere. Would highly recommend this tour and Gregor.

    Don’t miss this tour!
    We had concerns when we were informed that our ship’s boarding time was changed from 4:00 to 3:00, but Gregor assured us that we would still be able to see just about everything. He told us all kinds of “dark tales” and was very knowledgeable about everywhere we went(he’s local). He continually studies the area in a quest to be even more well-informed. Our tour of Larnach Castle was leisurely and fascinating, with a brief time to grab a snack. We were back in time. Best tour ever!

    Highly recommended. Couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend my day. Small group tours are the best way to get the full experience and history of the city. Thanks to Gregor for the history, humor and dark side of Dunedin.

    Loved it Love it Loved it. Awesome tour. Awesome tour company
    Tales from Darkest Dunedin were the saviour of our trip. The most professional tour company I have ever dealt with. Lolene could not have done anything more to accommodate our needs (and there were many) and Gregor has an endless wealth of knowledge to impart. I can not speak highly enough of this company and tour. We had some misfortunes during our holiday but this tour company washed all that away. We were a group of 6, each of us having something in mind of what we were looking forward to and in the end we all were 100% happy. I don't know how they pulled it off but they did. We really loved the tour, every minute of it. I will be recommending them to family & friends and I would recommend them to anyone who'd listen. Best tour company in NZ. Lovely people to deal with.

We booked this walking tour to get a feel for the city during our port visit from a cruise ship. Although the city is walkable on your own having a knowledgeable guide brings the city to life. Without this tour we would never have heard of the Dunedin sound or visited a most remarkable pub. Quirky, but if that's your thing (and it is ours) this is a great tour.

Gregor our guide was excellent. His historical knowledge of the city was immense and delivered in the most relaxed way. Easy to follow and informative with some amusing and entertaining local stories and myths. We would recommend him as your guide to Dunedin

Being on foot offered the chance to absorb the history of Dunedin and its sites at leisure. Gregor had lots of knowledge to offer that one does not get on a bus. It was great to be able to discuss the history and other aspects of Dunedin life. The only drawback was that the pavements are not that wide and so it was hard to hear all he had to offer as we walked.
