My partner and I had a great time on our tour of Speights in Dunedin. It was a very fun way to end our trip. Our tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable. The beer tasting at the end rounds it up well too. I would definitely recommend anyone who likes beer and is visiting Dunedin to go on... More

The tour guide had amazing knowledge and broke down every step of the brewing process. He told many great tales of the history of the speights brewery. The beer on tap tasting at the end was a definite high point.

During our trip to Dunedin we wanted to visit the brewery. I mean you're in New Zealand why not try local beer?! And visit where it's made! The tour was really interesting and well put together and a lot of fun, will worth the money, Andrew who did the tour was very informative and treated everyone with so much respect... More

We were able to get on a tour even though we were a few minutes late, which was good. The history of the building is amazing, and the beer tasting at the end didn't hurt either!!!

We visited this place after reading Trip Advisor when in Dunedin for a day on a cruise ship. It's slightly out of the way in an odd part of the city but well worth a visit. Staff were great, food was delish and well worth a visit.

The Speight's tour is a real surprise, we had an 11 & 13 year old with us and they were reasonably engaged. I loved it, fantastic guide and the tour is really interesting if you like beer. The tour takes around an hour and I'd avoid it with young kids (under 10)- they will be bored. The tasting is great... More

What a fantastic tour!!! Great to see that a company has not sacrificed the old ways, buildings and history to make way for modern technology. The Speights tour takes you back to the origins of the brewing in Dunedin having kept as much of the buildings and equipment as possible - even if they don't use them. Fantastic tour guide... More

We went to Cadbury first who sorted out a discount so we got a great deal at Speights. You can get the twofer deal here too I believe. Loved the tour, had the best guide, a great grandson of one of the founders. Fabulous place, full of interesting bits of history and you learn a lot about beer. Then to... More
