Dunedin is an amazing place to visit with Kim
Jan. 2021 • Family
I liked every icon we visited and it was amazing to go up and climb down the Baldwin St. Kim’s knowledge of the places we visited was excellent and mind blowing.

Great tour of Dunedin
Mar. 2020 • Couples
Kim was our tour guide for this Dunedin tour. He did an excellent job getting us to all the high points we had on our list. We had opportunity to shop for souvenirs at The Octagon, plus we visited the Railway Station, a great lookout over the city, Baldwin Street and the cemetery. We also got to see beaches and the old “castle”. Highly recommended!

Perfect for Cruisers!
My family and I booked this as our shore excursion during our port day in Port Chalmers/Dunedin and had a wonderful day!

I honestly had low expectations as I thought we'd be hearded around like sheep from stop to stop, but this tour was such a great value where you get to visit so many great attractions for such a great price.

We visited the University of Otago, the Dunedin Railway Station, walked up Baldwin Street, and had free time to explore the Octagon area. Our favorite part was walking around the Octagon because the food there was such a treat!

Book a tour through these guys, and they'll take care of everything! You even get water and chocolate!

Excellent tour.
Feb. 2020
Really excellent tour. Guide was great and almost ended up as a full day tour as we visited so many places and were given as much time as we wanted. VFM is really good compared to cost of tours with cruise line.

Enjoyable Look At Dunedin
Feb. 2020
We were picked at the wharf from the Norwegian Jewel in a small bus & driven round the Port Chalmers area before being taken on an extensive tour of Dunedin , including Otago University , Baldwin St (where keen walkers braved the steep street ) , the beautiful Dunedin Railway Station , & the local Beach areas . Time was also spent in the Octagon area before returning to the boat . Overall good value & an enjoyable time with a knowledgeable driver .

Good overview tour
Jan. 2020
I visited Dunedin off of a cruise ship and wanted a tour that would give me time left over to explore on my own. Unfortunately, given the time that this tour took, and the distance to the port from the city, that was not possible. This tour was a good overview of the area only. Well run and a knowledgeable guide. Some stops were rushed. If you have a particular interest in one of the stops, you are better off to engage a tour that visits only that stop.

Good Overview
Feb. 2020
This was a good introduction to Dunedin City. It is an 'overview' tour -- you won't go into any of the places that you visit. I particularly liked that the tour guide, Ann, was familiar with the town and was able to give us a feeling for the kind of place it was.
