We made private arrangements with Otago Tours to visit the Albatross Center and Yellow Eyed Penguin Preserve during our Holland America Cruise. Our tour guide Claudie picked us up dock side and then transported us to the two centers. She was delightful, knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. We also did a drive through tour of Dunedin with stops at several historic places such as the Rail Station. Communication during the planning stage was very good. We would use Otago again if visiting NZ in the future.

I did a wine tasting and a lord of the ring tour in bospiel station. I realy recommend Fiona, she help me so much to do this tour in Alexandra ! The wine tasting in Judge Rock vineyard was very friendly and good :) The tour in the top of the hill in Poolburn reservoir was awesome, you feel realy small in the middle of all this rocks, in the middle of Rohan !! We saw 3 differents filming location with the pictures of the movie, it was very nice !

What a wonderful day we had with Fiona from Otago Tours exploring some fabulous wine tasting vineyards and looking at amazing art works from a wide variety of world class central Otago artist gallery's and wineries. It was such a treat to be able to visit artists homes too to see them at work creating masterpieces! Fiona has a wealth of information about the more boutique specialized wines and winery's and is such a great orator. Thanks Fi for a wonderful day!

Otago Tours (our guide was Fiona Hewitt) was outstanding. She took us to tourist attractions, but also places off the beaten path, and made time for us to shop. The ZipTrek tour was one of the highlights of the trip, as well as a journey to one of the filming sites for Lord Of The Rings. New Zealand is a beautiful place, and I would definitely recommend Otago Tours if you want a "locals" taste of the South Island. Oh, and don't miss going to at least one winery. We went to the one owned by actor Sam Neill. Lovely, serene place.
