Athol Parks, our guide, provided humour, enthusiasm, entertainment, but above all, insight into what made/makes/will make Dunedin tick. A lovely way to introduce you to Dunedin!

I was on a tour with Athol, who is an excellent guide and very nice. It was a small, very friendly tour group, and we had a really lovely time. What a great way to see Dunedin. Highly recommended.
