We booked a half day city tour of Dunedin through directly through this company.

The guide, Paul, arrived very promptly we were then off to see Dunedin.

There was only 4 of us on the tour and Paul was very knowledgeable and attentive throughout. Also had a good sense of humour.

We were taken around all the points of interest and as we were a small group we were always at least 1 step ahead of the larger tour buses.

The tour had a really relaxed feel to it and I would highly recommend.

This tour is run by a father/son company. We were in a small van with only 3 people. Met promptly at port, taken all over the area with meaningful information. Very flexible to visitors' interests. A very enjoyable time and I highly recommend.

We enjoyed our trip with Les, he picked us up right inside the terminal building in Port Chalmers. Only us and another couple, so not a crowded van. Good overview of Dunedin, sweeping views from lots of different places, saw the steep street, Dunedin train station etc. Just got dropped back off in Port Chalmers, rather than the Dunedin option, as we love the small port towns.

My afternoon tour of Dunedin and the Otago coast was one of the best city tours I've been on in many years of global travel! When they say that they specialize in small group tours, they really mean it. There's no better way to get to know a city. I was the only visitor for a recent afternoon tour, and owner Les picked me up himself in his comfortable and clean Mercedes to gave me a personal tour of the city and region he loves. He was a wealth of interesting information on Dunedin's social and natural history. He tailored our tour to the sights I was interested in seeing the most and was so very friendly, knowledgeable, and respectful. We saw all of the well-known city landmarks (railway station, stadium, Signal Hill, steepest street, Rose Garden,) as well as the beach areas and stunning views from the hills. It was a real treat and honor to get to know the city from a real insider. Thank you, Les - and thank you, Tourworks!

We had this tour and it was fantastic, on picking us up at our hotel our guide Russ asked us was there anything in particular we wanted to see or do, what in particular we were interested in
He was so knowledgable, friendly and put our interests first
At each stop he got out of car and came on the walks with us explaining things along the way
Could not speak highly of this small group tour and would reckomend it to any one wanting to see and learn more about dunedin and surrounds

The three of us were met at shipside by the owner in his own car. He drove us to all of the sites in the city where he encouraged us to walk up Baldwin Street (a must), to the beach area and the peninsular. His knowledge was significant. He was helpful and courteous throughout - even stopped for a quick shop. A truly great experience. Thank you, Paul

Les did a perfect job of showing us around the best spots in Dunedin. He was ready to meet us as soon as we got off the ship and showed us a great deal in just three hours. We can't imagine a better time.
