The best way to see the sights of Dunedin in a limited time. Cheaper then you would pay on the cruiselines. Hop on hop off when and where you wish.

This was an excellent way to see some sights while remaining flexible to choose which venues to stop and visit. The sights offered, Museum, Botanical Gardens, Train Station and Speights Brewery each took longer than time permitted to see them all or even more than two effectively, particularly if you choose to include the Brewery tour. It would be helpful to include in the advertising for this trip to acknowledge the length of the tour of the Brewery in order to better plan the day. Our travelling companions missed an opportunity for lunch in order to make the tour and then return directly to the ship. The best fish and chips served anywhere we have ever been was in the old Speights Hotel prior to the tour.

Totally enjoyed this trip. The train station is beautiful! The train ride was fun.

Our ship had a change in itinerary date and arrival time, but I had no issues changing the date with Headfirst travel who were very helpful. Unfortunately due to the change of arrival time 9.30 instead of 8.30 we had to bus to the half way point of the train journey and so only had it one way. The bus trip took nearly 2 hours with a toilet stop. The train was fantastic as far as views go, a great experience but our train was very disorganised if you wanted to get something to eat or drink. No-one explained to us what would happen after the train trip, so it took a little while to find someone from the excursion team to ask where to go next which was disappointing. Overall a good trip and would book with this company again, but maybe ask a few more questions myself.

This tour started off on a bad foot as our cruise arrived late into port our initial train did not wait for us and the tour operators were non apologetic to our circumstances which were out of our control. However, the situation was fixed by busing us to the halfway point of the train journey to catch its return. This turned out to be a bonus as we saw the Dunedin Plateau scenery as well as the Gorge on the trains return. One tip we would give is once on aboard the train buy your food early as they seemed to sell out very quickly. The city sights tour was excellent and the bus driver was great and did not hurry us at any stops.

Dunedin On Off Bus. It was false advertising! The bus was a renovated 1970s bus that leaked in the rain and you could hardly see out of the windows.
We understand that they do have one double decker bus that is hardly ever used.

We took an old time train up Taieri River gorge. It was very scenic and we really enjoyed it.

Tour of Larnach castle was interesting but the history lesson of the area was the real highlight. The guide was excellent and the transportation arrangements were good. Cadbury tour was also a good choice. The same guide took us on the hop on and that worked out perfectly. All in all a very good choice. Enough time for a bit of shopping and a bite to eat if your hungry as well.
