We booked on to this tour and departed from the Red Shack. We were driven around the various places on the island and had the history and other aspects of the island explained. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the island and really brought a passion to the tour.

An amazing tour that takes you around the island providing information on pay and present. Great to see eco systems at work on the island. Lots of opportunities to take photos on this trip and driver happy to tale these for you.

A lovely tour to learn about the history and culture of this beautiful Island. Very very very informative and out guide was so passionate about her culture. You will learn loads and see some incredible sights too.
It's only 1.5 hours and you get driven around the island, it's a must for the first morning activity to really set you up here :)

Lacked any real substance and despite being entertaining, it could have covered more of the settlement and highlighted more accurate history.

Chris from Stewart Island Experience was the driver for the day and she showed us around 15km of the islands 32km roads. There was so much to see and learn that it was hard to take everything in. The bays we stopped at were beautiful with golden sandy beaches, the forests were overpowering and we expected dinosaurs to appear at any time, the views from lookout point were stunning and the anchor point with Bluff brought a smile. Thank you to Chris and the Experience team for such an informative tour.

Ron P, Hi again and thanks for your feedback. Looks like Chris did a fantastic job showing you around. Hope you weren’t too disappointed that the dinosaurs failed to show! Kind regards, The Stewart Island Experience Team
