Dunedin and castle private tour

We were lucky..only 4 people in our group so we had plenty of room getting in and out of Van! It covers everything in the area and then some..only disappointment was going into mansion and seeing the inside. Train ride a hoot...our seats would have been horrid but so few people on train so we could sit anywhere we wanted. Please buy your lunch at the mansion...their food is delicious and the train was much more money...so buy your food and drink and take it on the train ride. Loved the train and commentary explaining the history of the area! Loved being dropped off near our ship!

Our driver left on time and got us back to the ship on time. He was an excellent tour guide who spoke well about the area as we drive to the site seeing sites. The van was very comfortable as well.

Julie was fantastic! She gave us so much information and was happy. With only 10 in our group, it was easy to make friends and hear all the good facts Julie had to offer. Wonderful!

The tour was very well organized with a small group of 13 travelers from our cruise ship. Everything was timely and we experienced more than anticipated. Definitely a good choice.

We were the only ones to book this fantastic tour. It was so neat; having a private driver all day! We shared a lot in common with our guide. Especially the love of the country, gardens and people. The train ride along the coast was delightful. We ate on the train. Best coffee. Depot was wonderful!
