Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The tour we booked in Dunedin was an amazing experience, the pickup and drop off was on time and the tour guide was excellent. The rates for this trip were reasonable I highly recommend BookATour.

My Wife & I along with 2 of our good friends took this tour Sunday 7th of April 2024. Our tour guide, Murray or “Muzza”, was awesome, very friendly and knowledge about the city, buildings & history. We started the day visiting the worlds steepest street “Baldwin ST” & all 4 of us successfully walked to the top, OMG that is tough! We then visited the beautiful Dunedin Railway station, we toured around the city as Muzza told us about each building he pointed out with various history points, Lastly, we headed out to the Larnach Castle & Gardens, we had lunch there then Muzza gave us a guided tour of the castle, the workmanship was amazing! The coastal scenery was beautiful, we highly recommend this tour & company, Bex was great to deal with and quick to respond to messages.

We booked this tour months in advance for our cruise. A few days prior to the date of our tour I received an email that it was being canceled because we were the only 3 who had booked the tour. Totally surprised and disappointed with the news. The only positive was that we were able to get booked on another similar tour. But this caused needless anxiety and frantic emails. So beware before "reserving" with Bookatour.

Hello Dianna Magno So sad to read a review like this when i went out of my way to ensure you had an equal tour with a company we work alongside regularly so we are not taking empty buses to the Castle I responded to multiple frequent emails to both yourself and Angela and reassured you that the tour was all booked and that we had simply moved you over to a company we trust. Did you not enjoy the tour? Because for business owners like myself that is on tour full time answering emails to you ( you sent 20 to which i replied to all whilst I was on tour myself) is no mean feat - i guaranteed you the 3 seats you needed and Kim even emailed you and got you sorted on his company as well so Im really unsure why the terrible review? I personally went out of my way to ensure you had a tour where as you are making it sound I abandoned you.? Perhaps you are that way inclined that you just like to moan, or maybe you had a really terrible tour with the other company but either way its people like you that make people like me totally upset because I spent literally hours pandering to getting you sorted. I will be pointing this out to Trip Advisor and sending them the emails so they know you were not abandoned. I have spent 16 years ensuring my business and my customer service is top notch and I take it that my multiple replies and organisation of your tour saw you happy on the day!

Six of us had an absolutely wonderful time with Bex exploring Dunedin. I knew things were going to be great when she explained that payment wasn’t due until we met up with her on tour day because cruise ship schedules can change; a truly unique policy. Her van was clean and spacious, with plenty of room. Bex was delightful and made sure that our tour was keyed to our interests. She also wasn’t afraid to not recommend some of our suggestions because the time of the year was wrong. And whatever you do, take the “Bee Keeper Experience”; you will learn more about honeybees and honey from Maury than you ever imagined. Wish we had days to spend with Bex instead of just hours

Yesterday we visited the township of Dunedin, our tour guide was Becks, she was absolutely 💯 amazing, she a local and knows how to make your day in Dunedin one you will remember and talk about, Beck.was easy to talk too, never rushed us and took us to all of this city's highlights plus more, her commentary on the history and highlights of the town was very informative, lunch at Iconic was decilious. We finished off the day with a trip.to.the castle that was stunning.
I would highly recommend Bookatour for anyone wanting something special for your visit to Dunedin.

We booked a day trip with bookatour after a great experience 7 years ago and they didn’t disappoint. The best sights around Dunedin and some hidden gems up their sleeves.

What a great tour company! From the owner, Bex, right down to OUR TOUR DIRECTOR SHELL! What a hoot she is! From the time we arrived until we departed, we never stopped laughing. Shell was an absolute blast as well as very knowledgeable with New Zealand's history both present and years gone by.

We took many shore excursions on our 12-day cruise and voted this company and SHELL #1!! If you are planning on taking a vacation to New Zealand, take the time and book a tour with this company. You will not regret it.

Thank you, guys, again and a BIG SHOUT OUT TO SHELL!!! You made our trip!!

Our group had an amazing tour with Bex and Malcolm.
They took us all over Dunedin and made it fun! There is nothing boring about Bex, she kept us entertained the whole day. I am so glad that we booked with her and didn’t just go into town on our own.
Thanks again for a great day!
