Otago Peninsula and City Highlights Tour with a Private Guide


This 1 day (6 hours) tour showcases the spectacular scenery around Dunedin as well as taking in some highlights of the city.

We start the day walking through the magnificent Botanic Gardens, viewing NZ Native trees and exotic birds.

Next we drive up to Signal Hill Road for a grand view of the City of Dunedin and Harbor. On the way back we stop at Baldwin street; the steepest street in the world.

From here we drive to the center city to visit the Dunedin Iconic Railway Station.

Next we leave for the Otago Peninsula stopping on the way for a light lunch. We continue our journey to the top of the Otago Peninsula where we may spot some Royal Albatrosses and other seabirds.

We continue to Allan's beach to view the wildlife which may include sea-lions and if you're very lucky, penguins.

Regardless of what wildlife is visiting that day you will have a magnificent view of the South Pacific Ocean towards Antarctica. Pick up and drop off from the Cruise Terminal at Port Chalmers.
