This was a wonderful trip....spectacular scenery and expert commentary. Richard took us on a very comprehensive tour of the sights of Dunedin after the train trip.
This excursion was excellent value for money and less than half the cost of the similar tours organised by the cruise ship.
Just breathtaking , the scenery was wonderful, the explanation of what we were seeing was excellent. The volunteers were very helpful and keen to assist with food advise and selling of souveniers. Great tour for young and old alike. Great fun, thank you
This is the tour to go on, especially if you like trains. Great views of the countryside. Train was comfortable. You probably get more history of the area than possible any other way. Also the city sightseeing was most informative.
Great Tour. Just as described. Viator staff will wait for you even if you are delayed getting off the ship. We got to see more than the ship's tour and a lot less expensive. Viator is the only way to go!!
This was an excellent trip with splendid views of the Taieri Gorge and River. The train was a very comfortable refurbished 1937 carriage with excellent commentary throughout the trip. Our bus driver also was very informative and gave a great tour of the city and history.
Well organised, had a great day on the Train to Taieri Gorge, thoroughly enjoyed it. Bus tour of city was also pretty darn good. Trip through the gorge was beautiful, lovely scenery. A must do tour if you a visitor to Dunedin.
if you have to one off your bucket list this is a must do .stunning scenery with rivers running through gorges ..old fashioned train carriages with toilets and buffet on board ...much needed as this tour is nearly 5 hours return trip ...leaves from dunedin station a must see also even if not doing trip
Great trip along the gorge on the railway. Spectacular scenery. Pity about the rain. Excellent coach tour around the city with great commentary from the driver. Returned to the harbour in plenty of time to reboard our cruise. Don't pay cruise prices take this tour instead.
Fantastic views from the train on this trip and some great old style carrages as well. Another well organised trip with a good guide.
Great tour, very relaxing and well organised. No issue being picked up by the coach and dropped back off again. Driver kept the commentary going and felt as though we got a good overview of Dunedin.
Good tour , enjoyed the train ride and loved our tour of the city .
Amazing. Crew aboard the train were fantastic and added to the experience.
We had a great day ,the train trip was amazing with great views and history had the best sausage roll ever in the snack bar on train
Great trip fantastic views very well organised loved every minute well worth doing
Wonderful day, everything ran like clockwork, such an added thrill to have the city sights added to the rail journey. So much more for so much less as offered by the Ship.
The excursion was great. Our ship arrived in port late so we were bused to the top of the gorge which added another dimension to the trip. The staff were great and very informative as to what we were seeing. The city tour was likewise very interesting and provided great insight into the early days and what has occurred since. It was a lot better than many of the tours run by the cruise company if for no other reason than there were fewer people and you received more personalized attention.
The highlight of the day was the Taieri Gorge Railway which started from the picturesque train station--notice the tiled floor in the lobby. Although the restored antique cars were perfectly comfortable, we stood most of the trip outside on the platform between cars to get the most of the terrific views. On the recommendation of a local we went to the Ironic Café just across from the train station for lunch. The seafood chowder was sensational--best we've ever had. The 2-hour city tour was sort of anti-climactic after that, but Dunedin is a pretty town and I would love to go back. Didn't even have time to go to the Cadbury factory right down town. Man!!
A fantastic tour! The Taieri Gorge is a fabulous place.
Our tour guide around Dunedin has an infectious affection for Dunedin, a great young fellow.
Our cruise ship arrived too late to catch the train, but our bus driver said that was a good thing. He was right because the bus trip to the train turn-around at Pukerangi afforded wonderful views of the countryside that we would not have seen had we taken the train up the gorge and back. The train ride back to Dunedin gave us plenty of opportunity to experience the Taieri River gorge.
Excellent the Taieri Gorge Railway tour is well worth it with some excellent views. The station at Dunedin is spectacular too
Great trip, We really enjoyed the railway tour. Our city sightseeing was cut short as we were on a cruise ship and had to be back at the ship. However our guide did take us to the main areas.
