    I cannot rate this tour highly enough! Lucy was an incredible guide, and extremely kind! We were delayed due to weather for hours, and she was kind enough to wait for us to arrive and rearranged the schedule to include the best things we could do in the amount of time we had! We were able to see so much of Dunedin, including the highlights of the city and wildlife! Thank you Lucy!

    Ben, my knowledgable guide started me off with Baldwin Street, then down Otago Uni and around the beautiful Peninsula before stopping at Larnach. He left me a tip to go up the castle tower and the 360 view was simply breathtaking. He then drove around the inlets and I enjoyed scenic views of the waterfronts. At the albatross colony, luck wasnt with us that day due to the strong winds so we caught sight of only a couple of fleeting ones over the hill. At the Penguin Place, we made many attempt-stops to look for them. Saw one hiding inside their nest and another further out in the open via binoculars. Spotted seals along the way too. At the last point, there had to be a bit of waiting to see the penguins in action. Ben was patient and wanted tourists to get the most out of the tour. Unfortunately I had an appointment to go to so we didnt stay long enough to catch sight of them. Good excuse to come back on this tour in future with family/friends when the borders reopen. Definitely gotta see more of the albatross and penguins again!

    Our tour guide was amazing! Trill was funny, enthusiastic and filled with great information as well as highlights of back doors we would never have found on our own. The day was cool and sunny. She even had for us to see a bit of the octagon square and do a bit of shopping. Fabulous!

    After 10 years of hoping to see little blue penguins in the wild, this experience was on my bucket list!

    It was a fantastic experience, very well polished, knowledgeable guides and a rare opportunity to see penguins in their environment!

    This was a spectacular tour of the countryside, city, and Castle Garden. Asta was our driver. She was extremely helpful and very descriptive of the various locations and sceneries. The tour started from the seaport which was our pickup location. We were driven through the city of Dunedin and into the countryside which was full of spectacular views. Due to a very small group, Asta provided a very personable tour by stopping at various view points and for that postcard photoshoot. Always opt for the private tour so that you can enjoy Dunedin at its best.THANKS ASTA!!!!

    Everything was perfect from the booking to the skipper and crew
    Monarch is a very safe boat that gets you to see some amazing places
    A great way to spend my 70th birthday on a 70 year old
    Thanks

    Looking at the stars, identifying constellations is blended with story telling and song. Kylie curates this experience to the last detail and makes you feel special.

    We were very fortunate to see the both sealions and fur seals on a picture perfect beach on the Otago peninsula.

    Awesome tour, it was just me, my partner and driver/tour guide/overall friend Ben. He was very knowledgeable about the places and wildlife, because of him and this tour we were able to see yellow eyed penguins, albatrosses, sea lions and the only "castle" in New Zealand for the very first time! I highly recommend this tour company to all! great service!

    P.S. Give Ben a raise

    We had group of 8 people, many were wildlife enthusiasts and all commented on the great experience we had, and how Rachel had an excellent understanding of the wild life and harbour in general. Excellent value and a very enjoyable time. I have been on another cruise out to the heads and this was certainly the best. All the best for the future of your business Rachel.

    The collection of furnishings, the restored ornate ceilings, timber staircase, tiled floors and artworks are fascinating.

    Monarch has taken customer service to a new level!!

    Last August i booked three places on the City to Sea tour through one of the on-line booking agencies. In November the agency emailed me cancelling the booking saying Monarch were 'no longer running on that day.'
    So last week whilst in Dunedin, i was in the I-Centre and to my surprise saw the same tour advertised. To cut a long story short, i phoned Monarch who told me the agency had cancelled the booking saying the customer (me) had cancelled!!. So although the cancellation was through no fault of their own, Monarch put on a special "City to Sea"trip for the three of us. How incredible is that??
    So with the boat to ourselves, we enjoyed the most amazing trip out to see the sea life and in particular the Albatrosses. What a wonderful sight they were. In the strong winds, the birds were having a wonderful time gliding over the headland Truly a wonderful spectacle.
    Thanks to Buddy and Tim for their hosting us on the boat and to Monarch as a whole for their unbelievable level of customer service. Thank you so much.

    We did the City Walk with Andrew in February on the day the Piped Bands came to town which made for a noisy start to what proved to be a most interesting couple of hours - actually two and a half hours as we held up progress with questions which Andrew patiently and thoroughly answered. Having grown up in Dunedin he has an extensive knowledge of the history of the city and of the personalities who have helped develop it. The distance covered was not great but contained a wealth of interesting material. Andrew has an engaging manner which made the experience all the more worthwhile.
