Dunedin, New Zealand
This was a good basic city sightseeing tour, although it was in a very large bus so there were areas you couldn't go into. The Olveston House was very interesting. Dunedin is a quaint Scottish feeling town, and they have attempted to keep the look. The train depot is spectacular. I wish we could have visited it rather than just drive by. Also a visit to the Cadbury factory would have been a nice touch.
We had the option of two boats on the day we went and we opted to travel down to a reclaimed warehouse district which has shops and restaurants to visit. It was a nice calm river tour and the narration was quite informative.
We were picked up promptly at our preassigned hotel, and headed off in a van for our day in the Blue Mountains. We had quite an international group that day, and it was interesting sharing experiences with one another. Our driver/guide was quite knowledgeable, and went out of his way to accommodate any special requests we had. As is common in these mountains it was rainy the day we went and so a clear view of the three sisters was not to be. If you were patient enough the clouds would clear briefly and you could catch a glimpse of the rocks. We stopped in a couple of small villages and had time to shop, get a snack, or just enjoy the architecture. The driver took into account the weather conditions of the day and made appropriate changes so everyone had good experiences. The wild animal park was interesting, not our first in Australia, so the fact that the visit was short didn't bother us. The concluding cruise back into the city was a lovely end to the day. I would recommend this tour over the ones that are with larger groups. With the smaller vehicle we could travel more easily through the narrow streets in the villages. All in all a great day.
