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.
Had a great tour of the area. The small bus went everywhere and the tour guide, Mark, was very informative. We highly enjoyed this tour.
The tour around Dunedin was very good lots of info from Chris who was very knowledgible about both the city and the surrounding countryside
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.

Great trip. Our guide Chris was very informative and gave us a great tour. Joe
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.
The small tour was well organized and the driver gave a good commentary en route. Stops were interesting but no pelicans or albatrosses on a different tour.
The Otago Peninsula is spectacular scenery. Overall a very pleasant afternoon.
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!!
Excellant guide but it was a rainy day and not many animals or birds to see.
Not as expected, we did not go onto the beach to view sea-lions and penguins and we did not stop for light refreshments at Brighton. If it's seabirds and wildlife you're looking for, then don't bother as there was not much to see, the rest of the scenery was great.
Sorry our ship was not able to sail to Dunedin due to weather. You need to have better choices on your request in case the reservation can't be met. I had to rate and I thought you might read this if I gave it a low score.
