This was a spectacular tour of the countryside, city, and Castle Garden. Asta was our driver. She was extremely helpful and very descriptive of the various locations and sceneries. The tour started from the seaport which was our pickup location. We were driven through the city of Dunedin and into the countryside which was full of spectacular views. Due to a very small group, Asta provided a very personable tour by stopping at various view points and for that postcard photoshoot. Always opt for the private tour so that you can enjoy Dunedin at its best.THANKS ASTA!!!!

Thank you for your feedback. We couldn’t agree with you more, if you prefer flexibility, exploring Dunedin and Otago Peninsula at your own pace, then a private tour for your family or group of friends is the best choice!

Theresa was wonderful. She was open to take us to anything we wanted to see. Her love of the city was outstanding. It made for a great experience. This was much better than the ship excursions offered. Would highly recommend Theresa. This was a privated tour with just 2 couples. Perfect.

Our group of 5 had a wonderful tour around Dunedin and it’s surrounds. Asta was a great tour guide. She was friendly and her Mercedes van was very comfortable. I highly recommend this 4 hour tour and Asta. We were shown some amazing scenery as well as the local attractions. Everything was perfect and we all enjoyed every minute.

Thank you, Colin, for your feedback. It was such a pleasure to have you all on our tour and share this beauty of the area. I couldn't agree with you more, Dunedin and Otago Peninsula offer the most breathtaking views and we feel so lucky to be able to show this amazing area to visitors.

I can not speak more highly of Asta and her tour. Very knowledgeable on the history of Dunedin and familiar with all the touristy spots while also taking us to those places that only a local would know. I would certainly recommend anyone travelling to Dunedin to book with Fantail Tours and get away from the prescribed and regimented tours offered by the cruise ships which I found far more restrictive and far more expensive. Thank you for a great adventure Asta!!!

Asta was a wonderful guide,who treated us more like family.
It is a pity that the tour ended in just five hours, as we would have loved to keep listening to her wealth of knowledge!
