This was a brilliant trip. The guide was fantastic and went beyond to make this tour amazing. I would highly recommend this trip. It was a small group of 7 which made this trip very flexable. Well done viator
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.
Excellent excursion. The sights were fantastic. Very enjoyable.
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.
