We perform checks on reviews.
Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our guide/bus driver was educational and entertaining--our favorite kind of guide. He's a proud native of Dunedin, and it showed. He even took a slight detour on the way to the Royal Albatross to show us the city's train station, and it was an impressive building. He explained that there was a gold rush in the 19th century that led to such exquisite buildings and architecture.

The Royal Albatross was good, but it was COLD. We opted to stay inside the center, look at the exhibits, shop at the gift shop, and sit next to a heater in the cafe while drinking warm drinks. The cafe mocha was delicious!

Larnach Castle made us go, "Wow" as soon as our bus pulled up. It was a super busy day there, so seeing the castle with our female guide was difficult. She tended to let the male guides go to the rooms of their choice, even though our group had been waiting first. Consequently, we did not get to see the whole castle. We did take us to "high tea" after initially forgetting; however, please don't expect actual high tea. There is no three-tiers of snacks nor a box of your choice of teas.

My hubby and I walked outside to see more, and we were impressed by the views.
Our bus ride back to the ship was again made pleasant by our guide/bus driver. He even confessed to being on YouTube as the Dancing Dustman. We're going to have a look!

Otago Peninsula Wildlife - We loved the penguin sanctuary. After a short lecture, first you see the penguins in the sanctuary recovering. Then you to go on the hike down to the beach. Through tunnels to a blind to watch where the young are & to watch the beach for parents coming in. Weather today was warm so the cool ocean breeze was appreciated. We didn't happen to see the penguins at the shore but learned a lot. Well worth the time & effort.

Our day tour of Dunedin with Luis was one of our best experiences in New Zealand. Luis was incredibly informational throughout the tour, and was extremely kind and gracious the whole time. The tour itself, combined with his professionalism and candor made for an exciting yet relaxing day. Each spot we visited on the tour was unique and interesting in its own way, and Luis provided us with a plan to effectively view each place time wise. I would 100% recommend this tour to anybody traveling to Dunedin. We couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant experience. Thank you Luis!

We were all absolutely blown away on how professional the driver was and well looked after we were the whole time! Not just we got absolutely amazing pictures taken but we have been able to really get to see a lot of Dunedin in comparison to others in our cruise who went on the train or who went on the big buses! We were told that in the tour we would see a lot in a short time and by no doubt they were right! While others only went to the castle, we went to the castle and the entire peninsula where you have the penguins and the Albatross and wow that was by the best tour we had in our cruise in New Zealand!

My partner and I booked a tour and it was absolutely amazing! The driver was awesome! We went to all the main tourist destinations in Dunedin for a really good value. No big crowds, just us and the driver. You can't find many tours that are affordable and private so we are glad we found this one! Our relatives will be booking these guys for sure!
