Really enjoyed this Tour. There were only 5 of us and the driver Kim made sure we saw some extra's. We Loved the beautiful buildings and the craftsmanship involved. We saw beautiful gardens and Yellow eyed penguins. We also were amazed to see the Albatross gliding through the air.

Small tour bus from Viator for wildlife tour which picked us up from the cruise terminal, we drove through town on the way towards the Penguins. We learned about the endangered yellow eyed blue penguins and got to see their program to shelter injured penguins and the process of reintegrating them into natural environment. There is a moderate amount of walking in various places during the day. We walked by the coast to see some of the fur seals basking in the sun. I would have liked to go to the Lamach castle but the guide stated we didn't have time. We did however, spend time at the Albatross center even though we didn't opt for it . We saw some albatross flying above but it got so windy cold, we had to go inside after awhile. This was very scenic and enjoyed the nature part of this trip but recommend getting the specifics of the day in writing so they don't change it on you.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2016

The first part of the tour was good. Our guide, Kim, took us to the steepest street, the Railroad Station and drove around the Octogon part of town. The scenery was beautiful as we drove to the Otago Peninsula, but once there it became a bit disappointing. There was only one penguin to see. The description of the tour led me to believe that we would see many more. There was not much to do the rest of our time there. Kim got us back in plenty of time to board the ship as we drove through Port Chalmers.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2017

Trip to see the Albatross was spoilt by two very young children who screamed throughout the tour and inside the hide where you are supposed to be quiet. Staff did nothing about it. Penguin visit excellent and tour guide Kim was very enthusiastic and attentive. Had it not been for the kids my rating would have been a 4.
