This tour was a good value. We got to see much of Dunedin and many sea lions and seals on the Otago Peninsula. The tour guide was exceptional.

Tour was great! Be warned though, the drive is long and very curvey. If you are prone to motion sickness do not take this tour.

The Otago Peninsula was an absolute highlight! Did not expect to see Sealions and Penguins up close. Our guide was friendly, informative and it was a great experience to be in a very small group tour. One of the best shore excursions we did in New Zealand whilst on a cruise ship recently.

Tour was fantastic. Our guide Chris certainly knew his stuff, he presented and spoke very well. We enjoyed this and would certainly go again.

We took this tour because we were visiting Dunedin for 1 day on a cruise and had limited time. We have visited Dunedin previously however we saw sights of the Otago Peninsula on this tour that we had not previously seen. We saw sea lions and seals basking on the beach. It was a wonderful tour and we recommend anyone visiting Dunedin consider this tour as part of their itinerary.

Chris the driver was great and we were well and truly back to our cruise ship on time after seeing many different views and nothing was too much for him to do.

Now this is the kind of tour I love. Just 5 or 6 others in a small van as we drove from place to place in this interesting town. The driver/tour guide was most informative and personable. I really felt like this was a private tour for just my wife and I, and if you were able to ask her she would agree. In fact she still references this tour when discussing our trip to NZ.i

Very pleased with overall tour driver was well informed and we visited a few places where larger vechicles would not have access to.
Wellworth and value for money

Loved our final stop at a beautiful beach where we saw two sea lions napping on the beach.

Enjoyed this activity very much - wandering along a beach looking for (and finding) fur seals on an otherwise deserted beach was everything we had hoped for.

We had taken an earlier trip to downtown Dunedin, so when our tour bus came we did not spent
too much time in the city.
Our first stop was at an overlook of the area ad then on to the Otago Peninsula. We loved the
scenery and made a lot of stops on the way to take pictures. We did not see any wildlife, I guess
it was to early in the season or perhaps because it was a very cold and windy day.

The tour guide/van driver was very nice and informative (Chris). We had a delay due to picking up some passengers in town rather than from the cruise ship where the rest of us boarded, which put us off schedule by one hour and meant that we did not have time to stay for awhile in Dunedin following the tour. We also did not see any sea lions on the beach which was disappointing. Otherwise, enjoyed the tour.

We all enjoyed this trip very much. The sights were beautiful and the guides very well informed. I would reccommend this trip to anyone that wanted to save money and visit some of the same sites as the cruise ships. We had no problems and were returned to our ship with plenty of time for departure. Thanks for a wonderful tour!!

Since we have been to Dunedin several times we have already seen a lot. We found this tour very relaxing, the driver was most helpful and definitely all we were looking for in an afternoon tour.

The scenery along the Otago Peninsula was spectacular. Our tour guide was fantastic, he took us to this beach, and located a sea lion who was by chance taking a nap on the sandy beach so that we could have a closer look at it.
