Excellent tour. We had the best tour guide/driver. He took us into the castle and explained every room, the history of the castle and the grounds. He took us to every site he could take us to and had such good knowledge of every place we saw. It was the best tour we had on our vacation.

Even though the sun didn't shine on this day, we had a wonderful experience, thanks to our gracious and knowledgeable tour guide, Ron! He went out of his way to fill our day with more interesting stops and commentary than expected! The castle tour, stunning views from its tower, and magnificent views of Port Chalmers were the highlight of the day!

Thanks Kim and Ann for a wonderful, memorable day in Dunedin! Our family of 5 with 3 teenage girls travelled to Dunedin on a cruise ship in January 2016 and were met at the wharf. We visited a bird sanctuary, lookout point for photos, enjoyed walking up the world's steepest street, with a quick visit to the Cadbury factory and walk through the beautiful University campus. We finished with a tour of Larnach Castle, enjoyed the great café, and Kim's local knowledge and enthusiasm made the day extremely interesting and fun all round. Thanks again for a great day and we would definitely recommend Kim's tour to anybody visiting Dunedin.
