Asta A.

Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand

Kia Ora! My name is Asta. I am originally from Lithuania but have lived overseas for many years.

Our family job situation took us to various places around the world, which gave me the opportunity to travel, to gain irreplaceable experience and master and speak several languages. About 10 years ago, I moved to Dunedin with my husband and 2 sons, and I have been working in the tourism industry ever since I came.

I started as a travel consultant at Dunedin Visitor Center, but then I realized I wanted to be more connected with tourists and now I am excited to be a Tour Guide and to share the beauty of Dunedin with travelers from all over the world.

From the very first visit, I fell in love with the beauty of New Zealand and especially Dunedin & the Otago Peninsula. This place has so much to offer, such rich heritage, breathtaking scenery and unique wildlife. I love as much as the rest of locals, our extraordinary lifestyle that our small but great city offers. Where else in the world you would drive only 20 minutes from the city to find yourself on a remote beach with unique wildlife?

I'm passionate about the outdoors, and in my free time, I go for day-walks, exploring wildlife and nature. I do most of my touring in Dunedin, Coastal Otago.

I look forward to meeting you and showing you the best spots of Dunedin - Edinburgh of South - Otepoti!

A Recent Review of this guide

Asta was a really great guide. Very personable. Showed us a wonderful time even though the weather ( very foggy) made some sight seeing difficult. She adjusted on the fly to make sure we had the best views of things we could. Highly recommend her .
