We made the half-day tour "Yellow Eyed Penguins and Moeraki Boulders Tour" while beeing on cruise with Royal Caribbean (4 persons).
Joanne pickled us at the pier with her jeep at 09.00.am. We first observed the pinguins and the seals before going to the Moeraki Boulders. Joanne told a lot about the wildlife, the nature and the Maori culture. We could make wonderful pictures in a stunning nature. We made a coffee and tee break where Joanne served us delicious self-made peanut cookies. We decided to extend the tour with the sightseeing of Dunedin, which made the tour to a full-day excursion. We payed an absotluly fair price for an exclusive and private excursion with a biologist as tour guide. Thank you Joanne for this beautiful day!!!!

Dear Valerie, I'm glad you and the girls had a "beautiful day", I love your photo of the penguin just strolling along the beach. We now mostly use a people carrier rather than the jeep (actually a Toyota Prado) for a bit more comfort on most of our tours. I hope you all make it back to New Zealand one day as planned. Joanne.

We recently took a shore excursion while in Dunedin/Pt Chalmers, New Zealand with 4 Nature Tours. We could not be happier with the service we received. Joanne was most gracious before, during and after the tour. She answered a multitude of questions and was able to craft a tour that was enjoyable for each person in our small group. The Orokouni Ecosanctuary was the highlight for me (not to mention the fish and chips lunch on the beach). While the rest of the group explored Dunedin, she arranged for a private guide to take me thru the ecosanctuary for more detailed birdwatching (I'm sorry I missed the cookies). I can highly recommend this company. Joanne even e-mailed us pictures of our ship as we sailed away after a fantastic day in Dunedin/Pt. Chalmers.
