My wife and I loved the underbelly tour and our stop at the cemetery. The guide was excellent with a great sense of humor. Well worth it.

Nice guy and great knowledge of the area but not as scary as I expected the whole thing to be. Except an underground basement, the rest of it wasn't scary. We went on the city tour I believe.

I had gone on a ghost tour many years before in Edinburgh, Scotland and this was my second ever ghost tour, coincidentally in the Scottish town of Dunedin. My mother and I both love horror movies and anything supernatural so this was a must-do for us. Our guide Andrew was knowledgeable and a great story-teller. We had 5 people in... More

Fun tour to do late night in Dunedin. Andrew had a great balance of historical information, ghost stories and a touch of humor. Andrew doesn't beat you over the head with the supernatural and lets the atmosphere do the work. A great tour after the sun goes down so cemetery takes on it's personality as part of the tour. We...

We participated in the city ghost tour and enjoyed this so much that we returned for a second night on the cemetery tour. These tours were a great way to orientate to Dunedin and find out about the history of the city and its intriguing characters from a very entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide. Definitely wear comfortable footwear, and if... More

We started our trip to Dunedin with this tour and it was a great way to begin our holiday. Andrew is not only highly knowledgeable, but also has a immense skill as a storyteller. Not only was it a convenient way or orientate ourselves in the city centre, but we also learned tidbits that made our visits to other attractions... More

My husband & I had a wonderful Samhain evening with Andrew and 5 other people walking the streets of Dunedin. Andrew has an encyclopediac knowledge of all things ghostly and has a fun way of expressing this knowledge. Warren and I would thoroughly recommend this tour - the finale tipple is just what the doctor ordered. Many thanks Andrew for... More

Really enjoyed this tour. My girlfriend and I did it on rainy evening and loved it....or in Andrews words "loving it". Well worth it, great fun, very interesting and spooky. Andrew Is an excellent guide and in line with the horror greats its a real phycological thriller - johnny and Elaine
