A must see place including the now retired railway station.
We had only 6 people (I think) on the tour of Olveston House. A wonderful experience, especially as being a small group. Others arrived and were rushed through all the rooms. Our driver allowed us plenty of time to see everything. Our driver then took us for an extensive drive around Dunedin. Beautiful place.
The best tour ,value for money, and shows how beautiful Dunedin is . Our driver was super and told us so much,highly recommend this tour is for everyone thank you pamela Porter australia
This tour was above expectations. Olveston House is not like a lot of other heritage building tours. The building itself and the story behind it is fascinating. The people who work there are so passionate about their building and their city. It is a very friendly, interesting place to visit. The pickup was prompt and hassle free. The tour bus driver was friendly and had a wealth of local knowledge. We booked this tour for a land day while cruising and it ended up being just a small group tour, so it was almost like having your own chauffeur driven tour at a fraction of the price for similar tours that we could have chosen. I would recommend this tour and this company to all other travelers.
My partner, Lewis, and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Olveston House. The guide was knowledgeable, and the house itself amazing. Thank you. Jill
We had an excellent tour guide who has lived in Dunedin for years. We also enjoyed a semi- privated tour of the Olveston House. For the value, you get tour....
Tour was great, the guide was great, and Olveston House was terrific. We're so glad that we booked this excursion!
This is a great tour for the price. Our tour guide provided an excellent Dunedin city tour after we finished visiting the house. The house is gorgeous.
Very good value for money. Easy to find driver when we got off ship. Everyone involved was very nice. I personally found the trip too long since I had been to Dunedin before and did not need so much independent time in town. Would have been nice to have an option for returning to ship earlier. Really loved the tour of Ovelston House.
Great value for money we were on a cruise and were collected from the port and returned in time for our departure. We were taken to Dunedin first then we transferred to a smaller vehicle and visited Olveston House and were given a very informative tour of the house by our guide. We then went to Dunedin where we had time to walk round the city at our own pace before we then went onto another bus for a tour round the area. The whole excursion was well organised and the staff were helpful and informative.
This was a great tour for someone who had a limited time to explore Dunedin and to see the beautiful Olverston house.
Our guide was very knowledge and provided an excellent commentary on the history and sights of the town
Friendly and informative tour which was well organised and good value.
Olveston house is wonderful. The amount of time we were given (on our own) in the city was a wee bit long. This tour could and should be shortened. Very enjoyable.
The tour was separated into two parts. The Olveston House tour was interesting and lasted about 1 1/2 hour. After a lunch break on our own, which also allowed us to walk through the CBD with shops, restaurants, etc. we visited the nearby Cadbury Chocolate Factory. We then met the bus for the afternoon city sightseeing tour. Dunedin was an interesting small town.
Very much enjoyed our tour of Olveston House and Dunedin. Your staff were friendly and well-organised and there were no delays at any point in our transfers. Thank you all for an informative and enjoyable time.

Olveston House Tour was amazing. Such beautiful things inside and our tour guide was just wonderful. Didn't know what to expect when we booked the tour but glad we did now. Such a lovely house full of history.
Very nice and knowledgable guide on the sightseeing part of the trip. We were dropped off at the house tour though and later picked up by the bus driver. We could have skipped the house tour.
Great value for the money. Good highlight tour of the city and still gave us time to explore on our own. Wonderful visit to Olveston House, quite interesting. Glad we booked it, much cheaper than something from the ship.
I would book with Viator again and told others on the ship about it for the future.
