Half-Day Iconic Dunedin City Tour
"Following a morning pickup from Port Chalmers or your Dunedin hotel travel through the city as a guide sheds light on its history and heritage. During your tour take in top attractions and popular sites including Cadbury World and the Jacobean-style Olveston House. Along the way gain insight into Dunedin’s rich Maori heritage and hear stories from the city’s colorful past. Spin to a lookout point on Signal Hill to admire sweeping views over Dunedin and Otago Harbour and discover iconic sites of interest such as the Toitū Otago Settlers Museum and Speight’s Brewery — where one of New Zealand’s most popular beers is produced. Head down steep Baldwin Street to the bottom of the valley and enjoy a stroll among the 19th-century buildings at the heart of the University of Otago campus — often bustling with students and professors. After four hours exploring the streets and sights of Dunedin return in comfort to your hotel or the port to conclude your tour."
