The Otago Peninsula makes a fantastic day trip out of Dunedin. The scenery alone would make it worth it but going on a tour a seeing the sea lions, seals and penguins on the beach make it a real once in a lifetime experience

This is a great trip on a real New Zealand road so full of twists and turns. The views are stunning and it is a fantastic piece of countryside for locals and visitors alike.

Amazing views over the water and hills. Loved the drive on a coach trip from a cruise ship. There were places to stop and take photos. Definitely recommend this tour/trip.

A beautiful peninsula worth a drive around. Take some roads off the main roads and explore the inlets and scenery. We saw a huge variety of wetland birds, sealions, seals and even the albatrosses and we didn't pay a thing.

Dear Madam/Sir, RE: Otago peninsula is a long road overseeing the Dunedin city. The driveway has some lovely houses on the hill and the blistering winds could keep this region relatively chilly and cold. The drive is very long along the peninsula harbour and makes up for good sight seeing. Thank You

We drove from Te Anau to Dunedin along the coastal drive and the Carlin's. The old Pacific never looked so good. Part of New Zealand's finest pastoral/coastal scenery. A non tiring 7 hour drive.

Saw only a small piece of the beach plus some driving past the area. To get on the peninsula, we had to climb over a fence using a large tree stump. A lot of us older people could not even get over it.
