Our guide, Andrew, met us at the 'i' center and we walked about Dunedin. We lucked out in that there were only the 4 in our party on the tour. We moved at a nice pace and the time flew by. Andrew shared lots of stories about the town's history and tales of ghosts and gold. Gave us tips on... More

I spent an evening walking through the hauntingly beautiful streets of Dunedin while being told intriguing and thought provoking stories of days gone by. With just the right amount of humour, Andrew tells a story wonderfully well, leaving you with a 'wee' bit more understanding of the dark side! I highly recommend this very interesting ghost tour.

If only more than 5 stars could be given, this fabulous ghost tour deserves more! It's beyond stories of the mysterious and spooky spots here and there, but an insight into the off-beaten aspects of Dunedin. Daylight stood still when the walk began (due to long summer day!), yet it certainly didn't reduce the excited anxiety of hearing the next... More

Many thanks to Grace and Andrew...it was a fabulous tour, and the special attention to my kids was really appreciated. They keep saying it was the best thing they did in NZ (and I keep saying ''well why did I spend half my retirement income on @!#!* helicopter and jet boat rides then?!"). It was a really great way to... More

Very factual and informative, I left with lots of quirky facts to think about. Very amusing at times and also quite scary too, but not too scary. We did the late tour when it was beginning to get dark then finished in the pitch black, and it was great.

We booked to go on the night time cemetery tour. We couldn't go due to severe rain. Andrew the tour guide took us the next day on the crime walk your and incorporated the cemetery tour into it aswell, he was informative and really passionate about his job. Would highly recommend this tour.

Had a great time on the Dunedin city tour. Andrew has a way with words making the stories funny and scary all at the same time. Take a jacket - even in summer :-)

We spent a wonderfully eerie evening with Andrew seeing places we never knew existed in Dunedin and the stories behind them. Andrew has a way with words and knows how to tell a ghost story that will make you wonder if following him down a dark alleyway is a good idea. The tour was fun, scary and very entertaining. We...

We had a great time on the Dunedin city tour. The guide was funny and scary all at the sametime. I would suggest this tour for couples, family with older kids and friends.

We wanted to do something different as a team outing and organised a surprise Hair raiser tour for our group of seven we all thoroughly enjoyed it and as we work in Moray Place found it particularly fascinating to find out about our neighbourhood ghosties
