Castle and etc.
Feb 2020
Our driver was great - very knowledgeable and super nice. He is a local so has history in Dunedin and surrounding area. Bus very comfortable and well maintained.

Castle is awesome - gardens and gounds beautiful and extensive, castle is awesome with a very interesting history. Glad someone is restoring and maintaining the place.

The Chinese gardens and museum are a miss - very small and not really that interesting. Go for the castle and viewing of the Train station!

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy the the Chinese Gardens and Settlers Museum - this is often a highlight for many people that do this tour, but to each there own! We hope you get to visit Dunedin again soon!
