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."

In the city itself we have excellent Edwardian and Victorian architecture including the historic train station and Otago University.
