Taste of Dunedin City Sights and Peninsula Sightseeing Tour

Iconic city sights, coastal inlets and stunning harbour views are the highlights of this 4-4.5 hour tour, and it starts when we collect you from your hotel, where you’ll meet your guide.

We start with a scenic drive that takes in the location of where Dunedin first began for both the early Māori and European settlers, and a look at some of the beautiful iconic sites our city has to offer. We then head out for the Otago Peninsula which delivers spectacular views above the Otago Harbour before winding back down to sea level to arrive at scenic inlets frequented by wading birds.

Hear commentary about the nature and the natural processes that shaped the land and learn about Māori, the first people to step ashore here. We’ll take a stroll along a stunning sandy beach where we are often lucky enough to glimpse New Zealand sea lions and fur seals. Then drive towards the end of the peninsula to see some highly significant sites for Maori.
