If you’re looking for a tour that does the main things in Dunedin, do the one hour, if you’re wanting to go into the suburbs and out to the beaches, do the two-hour tour. For a cheap price, it comes with great commentary and great sights. We got to see many things along the way and I certainly learnt a lot, and when we asked if our driver, Richard, knew where the Six60 flat was, he even took us there! Superb customer service. There were also 5-minute stops along the way for photo opportunities and toilet breaks. I would highly recommend this tour to all now and it has even made me want to live there now!

We booked with this company via the internet well before we left on a cruise to NZ. Very smooth. Met the company rep in the arrivals shed at Port Chalmers, just look for the bloke with the beard holding up a sign the volunteers told us and at the appointed time he arrived. Checked out names off the list along with about 40 others not wanting to pay double for similar short excursions from the cruise ship shoretours. Went by bus to Dunedan Railway Station with young enthusiatic driver with good commentary. We then got the Tairie Gorge Train. Josh was there with the bus for our return to take us around Dunedin highlights - The Octogan, Baldwin Street (no time to walk) and Rotary Park lookout. Back in plenty of time for embarkation. Pleased with experience.

We used Good Company for tour excursion for gorge railway and city tour. Would definitely use them again. The gorge was picturesque but not that unique. For those on a cruise, the brewery tour and Larnach Castle are better choices unless you are a train buff. We luve in the Pacific NW in USA and have better scenery. At least as gorges go!

There were only 5 of us on the bus, we were docked in Dunedin for such a short time but our wonderful driver Josh made our trip very enjoyable, he was passionate about his job and his city and made sure we were comfortable and cared for, I cannot recommend this company and young Josh highly enough.

We booked Good Company tours for a tour of Dunedin and Larnach Castle rather than over pay for a ship's tour. They were set up and very organized at the Pt Chalmers cruise ship terminal and they had our names, so finding them at the dock and boarding their tour bus was easy. Our tour guide was a local and very enthusiastic about showing his city to us. He gave informative commentary as he drove around Dunedin. He took us out to Larnach Castle, where we had a tour of the house and time to each lunch before re-boarding the bus. We returned to Dunedin and were given 45 minutes to walk around the town before we were picked up again near the Cadbury Factory store. (skip the cadbury world tour- not worth it). He took us to a promontory point overlooking the city before returning us to Pt Chalmers and the cruise ship all in good time. Excellent day with Good Company Tours. I recommend them and would use their tour company again.
