Went for a tour called Penguins and Peninsula - where we went to explore the Otago peninsula wild side, followed by the Penguin place where we could see yellow eyed penguins coming back from their fishing trip. We were lucky to have seen many species of birds such as kingfishers, pukekos, native ducks - and some marine mammals (sea lion and seal). Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly; let us choose how we would spend our time in the first part of the trip. Superb excursion, highly recommended.

Mateo is a top bloke and made this one of our favourite experiences in New Zealand. This is a must do in Dunedin and a once in a lifetime experience. The trip was an intimate insight into the history, lifestyle and wildlife of the South Island. During our encounter we got close and personal with the endangered yellow eyed penguin, a gang of seals, blue penguins and seabirds. We couldn't recommend Mateo and the team at UntamedNZ enough! 🤠

Kia ora Codey and Leah, Thanks so much for the lovely review of our Penguins and Peninsula Tour! We pretty much nailed it with views, wildlife and super close penguin spotting! Reid waddling past us just a couple of metres away was the icing on the cake for me 🎂 Awesome to have people travelling around a little bit again and enjoying beautiful Aotearoa! I hope the rest of your trip goes well and you can find a few of those hidden gems Ngā mihi Mateo

We had an amazing day with Mateo. Thoroughly enjoyed his company and knowledge of Dunedin & the Otago Peninsula. His passion for the Orokonui ecosanctuary was infectious , we loved the peace and tranquility of the sanctuary. The bird life is fantastic so worth the huge effort that has gone into developing the site and ensuring that it is preditor free. Thank you so much Mateo very best wishes to you. We would thoroughly recommend this tour Nga mihi nui Graeme & Barb

Kia ora Graeme and Barb, We had a simply fabulous day exploring Orokonui Ecosanctuary and Dunedin City! The day was full of sunshine, full of wildlife and full of fabulous views! It's always special to have close encounters with our native wildlife and the hard work at Orokonui to keep predators at bay certainly allowed us some amazing moments. I hope you had a good time at Larnach Castle and the legs aren't too tired from the Central Otago Rail Trail! Hope to see you again one day! Best, Mateo

Brillant trip to Oronokuni Ecosantuary with Mato. Excellent guide with a vast knowledge of Oronokuni which he is happy to share with his clients. Super friendly and professional. My second trip with Mato and I will recommend his tours to anyone. Definite highlight of this trip was viewing both pairs of Takahe and the three kaka which we were fortunate enough to find.

Hi Lee, Thank you so much for visiting Dunedin with untamedNZ tour company again! Our trip to Orokonui Ecosanctuary was a special one for sure and those Takahē just can't be beat! It's always great stumbling across a cheeky Kaka or 3 l! Their rambunctious shenanigans always bring a smile to my face. Hope to see you again soon for a trip out to see your beloved Royal Albatross! Best, Mateo

Wild hills and beaches of Dunedin's coast and a fabulous time at the albatross colony. Thanks Mateo. I will do this again the next time I am in Otago. So much knowledge that Mateo is happy to share.
