The tour is 1.5 hours and covers just about all of the islands roads. The tour guide was very informative and the tour was a great way to see a summary of things. Do this first in your trip to the island as you will get tips on things to do.

A great informative tour of all the high spots around Oban. One and a half hours in a comfortable bus. Plenty of photo stops. Highly informative commentary from our host driver. There we only the two of us on the bus this day but this did not deter our driver who gave us the full treatment, in fact I think we got a bit extra ! A must do experience when visiting Stewart Island.

Excellent local knowledge about Rakiura (Stewart Island). Our guide was wonderful. Highly recommended tiki tour around the island, it helped us orient ourselves and plan a walk over to Māori Beach.

A comfortable bus, knowledgeable guide, an easy way to learn a little about the township. I'd have liked a little more opportunity to get to some more points around town such as the Presbyterian Church with its view over the bay. I loved the brief dip into the National Park- will need to return for more of a visit.

I would say it is a great thing to do and would rank it higher. But it should be done as almost a first thing and I did the tour 5 hours after I walked most of it. Other than that its a great way to learn what to do and resonably priced.
