The weather in Dunedin was not great at the start of this tour, however the train surely made up for it. This is a great trip starting at the incredible Dunedin Station and then following the twists and turns of the Taieri river up into the high country. The weather high up was far better where we stopped at the quaint 'whistle-stop' town of Middlemarch. The train conductor on this trip was a real character and kept us entertained and informed for the duration of the trip up and back. There were many opportunities to get great photo's for the full duration of the trip. On return, our bus driver provided a very comprehensive and informative tour of Dunedin before returning us to our ship. Well worth the money.

This trip was by far better than we could have expected. Our very professional and friendly bus driver, Richard swiftly sorted out some teething problems with our booking system and made sure we were safely on the train. We were seated in the dining car - and were able to photograph and see the wonderful views of the gorge as we went along. After the train trip Richard took us on an extensive city tour - his knowledge was amazing! I felt very safe with his in the driver's seat. Pat - in charge of the dining in the train - made a wonderful cappuccino - and the sandwiches were delicious. The announcer on the train was also excellent - easy to understand and extremely knowledgeable of the journey. This was our first Viator tour - thank you.

The bus driver Richard for this tour loves his city and made me love it too.

Because our ship docked after the train had left, we had to take the bus to Pukerangi and get the train there. Afterwards, I was VERY HAPPY that it happened this way. The bus tour, because of Richard, was much more interesting than a double train ride would have been. The scenery is gorgeous, but twice--maybe not so much.

The rest of the tour was just as great--again because of Richard. I learned a lot I saw a lot and I enjoyed it immensely.

Wonderful train trip. Easy pickup and back to cruise ship. Beautiful scenery. Good live narration as you travel. Followed by City Tour. Would recommend. Considerably less expensive than tour through Princess.
