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

We did the ghost tour, one dark, cold winters night. It was only a small group of 4 plus the guide. The guide was very knowledgeable and didn't overplay the supernatural, but gave some anecdotes that put a personal touch to the supernatural. The total distance was relatively short, but took a couple of hours. Whether you are a believer... More

Guide Andrew lead 5 adventurous free spirits in search of a sleepless night on a circuit of historic sites and spooky story stops near Dunedin's Octagon. The younger souls quickly established a special rapport with Andrew and hung onto his every word. The "grown ups" were fascinated by places they had never noticed in a city they thought they knew...

I realized that the narratives about ghost and spirit are very much cultural related, so being an Asian tourist, I found this trip was interesting. I was curious to understand the stories of ghost, unrest spirit from the 'western' epistemology and ontology.The guide was very informative and charismatic and made the trip very personal by asking the visitors' experiences in...

I did the tour of the Dunedin Northern Cemetery with a group of friends late at night. Very enjoyable and lots of fun. Many spooky stories told about the various interesting characters buried there and some cool stories of hauntings in the graveyard. Andrew is a very good guide, charismatic, spooky and a good sense of humour.

We walked up to the octagon in the middle of town, we sat down for a minute and got the fright of our lives from Andrew Smith, our guide. He took us down dark alleyways, around old churches and hospitals.Andrew had a good sense of humor, and he had a great suit for the tour! My favorite story was the... More
