What You Can Expect
My husband and I booked our own shore excursions instead of going on those offered by Holland America on our November 2015 NZ/Australia cruise, and this tour turned out to be the highlight of our trip. Our excellent pilot, Nick Hoyle, with Paravion Wilderness Tours, changed our itinerary to avoid some possible weather problems, and how grateful we were to have smooth flying conditions. It was a thrill to land on an open field on Maria Island, and then Nick led us on a walk and provided a picnic of hot drinks and some snacks. We got within a few feet of a calmly grass-munching wombat. On our flight back to Hobart, Nick spotted some whales, which we would have completely missed, and took us right over them for a closer look. Wineglass Bay and the cliffs of Pillar were magnificent. It was a splurge well worth it.
Small group was great with our guide, Bruce. We saw spectacular scenery and had an optional drop off in town where we shopped and visited the Cadbury factory.
Very informative guide excellent stops for photo opportunities. A great time was had by all.
This small bus group had a wonderful time exploring Dunedin. The weather was superb. The scenery was fantastic driving to the old Railway Station, throughout the town and along the beaches. We saw two male sea lions basking on the sands, many beautiful birds and mother/father and their ducklings throughout the tour. Daniel, our tour guide was very informative, polite and above all friendly. Thank you for a great tour of Dunedin.
We took the afternoon trip and our driver met us in Dunedin, which worked out well. The trip to the Otago Peninsula is breathtaking. We walked out through a reserve to some spectacular views, and then drove down to a beach and along the shore. We saw lots of birds, but no seals. It was a beautiful excursion and we enjoyed the walking.
