We had an excellent tour. There were just the two of us. We had an informative tour of the city . The guide was knowledgeable and catered for our needs while showing us the sights. We had a tour of Larnarch Castle. Again our guide was knowledgeable. The stories he told enhanced our experience. These were things we would not have known wandering around by ourselves. Without this tour we would not have found out or seen as much of Dunedin as we did. I would highly recommend that you use this tour company when in Dunedin and make the most of your time in the city especially if like us it you have limited time. We made several unscheduled stops. From recommendations from our guide we knew what we wanted to see the next day and how to get there. Great day Thank you

We chanced upon a guide with no customers when offered a tour we accepted. We both reflected that we learnt so much more, and would possibly have missed the sculpture garden, without a guide.

I contacted Ralph at Headfirst to put together a bus trip day out in North Otago for a group of friends. Ralph couldn’t have been more helpful and gave us plenty of good value options. We decided on our trip and on the day Alan was a great, friendly informative driver. The scenery was great and the two wineries we visited River T and Ostler had interesting stories to tell and delicious wines to taste. An excellent day out and I would highly recommend Ralph and his team.

My partner and I attended the 2pm trip to Larnach Castle. The trip ended up being just us two which we didn’t mind at all. We had a lovely driver, who was very knowledgeable about Dunedin and it’s surrounding areas. We made a few stops - not planned on the trip which included a lookout point on the way to the castle, Baldwin St and St. Clairs Beach on the way back which we were very pleaseD with as it ticked off our list. Our tour at the castle was awesome, well paced and our guide/driver was awesome. We really enjoyed this tour and Larnach Castle is amazing!

Hop on and hop off tour of Dunedin. After being a bit spoilt at the other stops, having took private and small group tours, we had to ‘rough’ it on a hop off bus. It was just ok. At one stage we all had to get off one bus and onto another which was most inconvenient as we had finally got a good seat. Then we lost our good seat and had to sit downstairs on the second bus.
