My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting James the tour guide for an enjoyable day seeing the sights of Dunedin, Larnach Castle and the Albatross Centre. He was a 'fountain of knowledge' and we all had a great time.

Happened to be the only one booking the tour that day and could completely pick where to go or stay longer. Loved every moment of it and learned a lot, not just about Dunedin, but also about Peninsula wildlife and Maori culture. Thank you so much for a wonderful day (and also the best lunch break I had on any tour ever ;-) )! Also got some truly amazing photos out of it, especially of the albatrosses. To show you how unforgettable this tour is, I'm writing this review almost a year later, because I remembered Tripadvisor wasn't saving my review back then. Hope to be able to come back and take my family on this tour one day.

Absolutely spoilt! We booked a 4 or 5 hour nature tour but asked if we could possibly stop in at Larnach Castle. That was no problem. After checking out a couple of different native bush areas and the castle we headed towards the ocean to spend quality time a few metres away from some very playful seals and then on to the beach to see a massive sea lion. Due to finish around 5 or 6pm Lyndon was ridiculously generous with his time and insisted (since we’d mentioned it) that we visit the penguin colony, where he ensured we got the absolute best viewing spot, gladly sharing his knowledge with all and sundry before taking us back up the hill to use his night vision goggles which were hooked up to his iPad, pointing out all of the seals and penguins in their various spots all around the hills. We probably got back around 9pm! Lyndon was knowledgeable and fun and as I mentioned, overly generous with his time. Easily the best value for money tour we’ve ever done. 100% recommended!

Thanks James & Horizon Tours, we totally enjoyed our day with you to learn about Dunedin and the surrounding area, James knowledge and humour combined to make the tour an enjoyable day. Our tour included Dunedins historic buildings which have been preserved to create a beautiful city, Larnach Castle, the Albatross colony and lots more in between to help us appreciate Maori culture and the bird life around the area.

Kia ora! Thank you for your review, and taking the time to write one. James is often teased by our kids about his dad jokes and humor so I will pass on your comments as he will no doubt show the kids that people appreciate his humor! Ngā mihi, The Horizon Tours Whanau
