Best of Dunedin City

At untamedNZ tour company, we like to do things a bit differently. You have probably done 'free' walking tours in Europe or other travel destinations...we are bringing you the same concept but a bus tour of our beloved City!!

Book your 'Best of Dunedin City' bus tour today for $1.00 (booking fee) and upon completing the tour pay your guide the value that you feel the tour was worth too you - we can accept credit/debit (visa/mastercard) and cash (NZ or other currencies) on the day.

This is a premium tour of the highest quality with the best tour guides in Dunedin - please check our reviews. We are just offering an alternative price structure to you.

This is a cruise passenger-specific (pick up and dropoff at Port Chalmers Cruise Ship Terminal), comprehensive, informative and fun tour of all the Dunedin City highlights including scenic Otago Peninsula Views and the glistening white sands of St Clair Beach. Learn about the history of Dunedin, the early maori and european settlers and the gold rush in the area that bought so much wealth to the City.

Our first stop in Dunedin City will be Baldwin Street - The steepest street in the world. Here we will have a chance to wander (or rather climb) as desired and capture photos at this unique destination.

Next up to Signal Hill lookout to admire the city from above before descending to the University of Otago.

A stop at the famous Dunedin Railway Station and an opportunity to capture some beautiful photos of this magnificent building from inside and out.

Next we are onto the Otago Peninsula with a scenic stop for photos overlooking the Otago Harbour and history of the early settlement by european pioneers.

A drive through our beach suburbs back towards the city will give us another scenic opportunity of the rugged coastline and glistening white sand beaches

Next we make our way towards Dunedin's Octagon admiring the beautiful architecture of years past and a chance for a brief wander.

This is the final tour stop and it is up to you how you spend the rest of the day. Stay on board with your guide and return to Port Chalmers or stay in town and have a wander in the central city and find your own way back to Port Chalmers.
