Amazing views, especially on a sunny day. Lots of beaches to explore. Good chance of seeing sea lions, albatross and penguins. A unique area to visit.

Great tour that showed us quite a bit of the Otago Peninsula & Dunedin. Our guide, Matt, was very informative & very in tune with the local ecosystem. We saw many of the local attractions, as well as, some of the great wildlife & birds. This is a great tour for photographers who love landscapes & wildlife.

We drove out the entire length of the road on the Otago Peninsula. It is a narrow, windy road which services a lot of bus traffic. The day was sunny and the views were wonderful. I especially liked the painted bus stop shelters around Portobello. We ended up at the Royal Albatross Center. It had interesting displays, a cafe and... More

Otago can offer kind of history - the larnach castle and its gardens, but also lots of nature - especialy the only one landing for albatross. Great place!

As the whole of New Zealand, this is a picturesque place, and a very nice drive. Not for the squeamish though, as you will be driving right next to the sea with zero barriers or railings. I guess they take motorists for adults in NZ

If you like driving like myself, you might like to reward yourself with some of the best scenery, and the nicest twisting roads that Dunedin has. I lived in Dunedin many years ago, and this was one of my favorite Sunday morning pastimes, just taking the winding often very technical corners all the way to the end of the peninsula,... More

The Otago Peninsula makes a fantastic day trip out of Dunedin. The scenery alone would make it worth it but going on a tour a seeing the sea lions, seals and penguins on the beach make it a real once in a lifetime experience
