Dunedin and Larnach Castle
Anna_D
, Apr 2020
Our guide picked us up on time and commented throughout the drive to the castle as well as the Dunedin highlights tour. We would have loved to have had him accompany the group into the castle and grounds but he indicated that was not permitted. It was a little confusing at first to figure out where to begin so as not to miss any of the castle or grounds. The scones served in the castle cafe with jam and Devonshire cream were superb...right from the oven. A wonderful way to complete the visit.

Incredible Larnach Castle

This was a great tour - the best way to see Dunedin and the Castle. We stopped for photo opportunities at the viewing points, had 30 minutes to check out the cathedral and souvenir hunt at the Octagon, and ample time to enjoy the superb Larnach Castle. Ross our guide was polite, amusing and informative. Couldn’t have spent a better day in Dunedin.

Despite a disparity in the time we were advised our coach would pick us up (30 mins later than advised) our driver was excellent and gave us a wonderful tour of the highlights in and around Dunedin with a tremendous amount of local knowledge and history provided and we returnedf to our cruise liner having thoroughly enjoyed our day with him.

We visited all landmarks described in this itinerary. We also went to the Cadbury Chocolate factory, Baldwin Street. The driver waited for us even though our cruise ship delayed for an hour for us to disembark because of waiting for availability of the port shuttle from the port to the terminal. I like the small size of this tour. It's a comfortable 10-person van. It's easier to follow and listen to the tour guide. I highly recommend this tour.
