Private tour guide Mateo

Mateo W.

Dunedin, New Zealand

Kiaora, I'm Mateo - tour operator, guide and bird whisperer based in Dunedin, New Zealand.

I am fortunate to have grown up in Dunedin and have been offered the opportunity to work in and experience many of the best attractions to this area. I'm passionate about Dunedin - our history and particularly our amazing native flora and fauna. I have worked with the world's most endangered penguin - the Yellow-eyed Penguin and still guide my own tours at a local conservation reserve. I also have a love of New Zealand forest birds and wildlife, guiding my tours at another local reserve - a real treat for those animal lovers! My family were among the first settlers to arrive to the Otago Peninsula - sharing their stories with you is a pleasure.

As a keen traveller myself, I appreciate the delight of small-group touring. Our modern vehicles ensure your comfort while we explore Dunedin and the South Island.

I have a keen focus towards conservation and eco-tourism, so don't be surprised to see me picking up a piece of litter or ensuring people are viewing and photographing our beautiful wildlife considerately while out on tour!

I LIVE here, I LOVE it here, and I want to share the most beautiful place on earth with you! So why don't you join me? I would love for you to imagine, wander, gaze and discover NZ with me!

Best,

Mateo
