    Originally did the tour about 5 years ago. This tour was different with more historical detail and just as good. Enjoyed a meal downstairs afterwards.

    Loved how interesting the tour was made by the guide...informative and humourous! The tour started with watching a video at the ground floor, before we took the elevator to the 8th floor and slowly walked our way down as the guide brought us through Speight's history and the

    Even if you don't drink Beer (I don't), it was such a fun tour to take. at the end of looking over the old brewery, you are taken to the tasting room and given a selection of Speight's beer to taste. could be hard on the tour if you have a disability as there are some steep

    Hi Vanessa T Thank you so much for your review of the Speight's Brewery Tour on TripAdvisor - we appreciate your feedback. Great to hear that you enjoyed such warm and welcoming southern hospitality. Great tip about the steps, we are able to cater for those with a mobility impairment and select a different route to avoid many of the steps (we do have 200 stairs during this activity - all of which are downwards). We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to Dunedin. Good on ya mate, Rosie

    It's definitely a "tourist" thing to do. The guide information seemed "canned", with the jokes and the playing off where folks are from. Seems the guide gets his information from the internet (which is always right) and uses that in his act. We did learn some things. Once I

    Dear NZ1956, Thank you for sharing your views on TripAdvisor - we appreciate the time you took to add your comments. Sorry to hear that you did not particularly enjoy your experience at the iconic Speight's Brewery; we do aim to engage with all our travelers whether their interests are the diverse history of Dunedin or more beer specific, it is unfortunate to hear that we missed the mark on this occasion. Our guides are extremely well versed in the history of both the Brewery (the oldest operational Brewery in New Zealand) and also Dunedin, and I can assure you that we have an extensive archive of anecdotes and documents to augment their significant experience (we have yet to utilise the vast array of data housed within the web). We would certainly recommend visiting the plethora of Craft Breweries that are now a feature of the Dunedin landscape - an especial favourite of ours is Emerson's Brewery, as their craft offering is complimentary to our own more mainstream style of beverage. I trust that you enjoyed that remainder of your trip to Dunedin. Cheers, Rosie
