Interesting train trip with lovely views. The staff were all very nice and helpful too.
Olveston House was underwhelming but I guess we are spoilt for beautiful old houses in the UK and this was the best they had in Dunedin. Some of the content and furniture was also misdescribed - we had some real experts on our trip from the countries of origin. The house is basically a collection of things that some wealthy people bought on their world travels - its a real mix up and not necessarily of good taste.

The train ride was a virtual duplication of the bus ride from the port.

The city tour was good but I was disappointed the coastal train. Overall it is very nice tour.
