We elected to take the 2 hour tour and were really pleased we did. Richard is an absolutely excellent guide with a very thorough knowledge of Dunedin and surrounds. I echo the comments of other reviewers, before you do anything in Dunedin take the tour!!!!!

A friend and I took the city sights tour and was not disappointed. The driver was extremely knowledgeable, and being able to see the hilliest of cities from a bus was a great change from the walking.

The guide was informative and we learnt so much, we even used some of his tips on places to visit such as the train station. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, the bus was small so it manouevered a lot better too.

Tip - sit in the middle rows, the front nor the back of the bus offer any advantages.

Highly recommended to get a view of the city from all the best angles and learn about the history of the town.

The only - and this was not a deal breaker - thing that this missed was an actual walk of the worlds steepest street, but you do get to view it from the bus, and I seen a few people attempt to walk the street and they looked extremely tired, so I was extremely grateful we did not walk it.

Took a tour with Richard at Good Company Tours while visiting Dunedin on a cruise of NZ recently. Richard knows all there is to know about Dunedin I'm sure. He was very informative, on time and friendly. We booked via the website months before travel and the whole process easy and the tour was exactly as described. This is a great tour for cruise travellers as it picks up from the dock at Port Chalmers, with drop off at the Octagon right in the middle of town with a couple of hours free time to explore (we headed to Cadbury World and Speights Brewery). Richard then picks up again about 2 pm for a tour of all the major sights in town and around the countryside before heading back to the port for drop off. Great tour, great company, you wont be disappointed.

I had been to Dunedin before, but did not realise how much I did not know and had not seen until Richard took us on a 2 hour city tour. Lots of history, lots of great views and Richard is very knowledgeable about the city and its history. Before you do anything in Dunedin, do the tour which will set you up with some local knowledge and then you can make the most of your stay. Thanks Richard, great tour. !!

Just did a cruise of NZ and waited to see what was on offer in each port. Good Company Tours approached us and we went on their tour. 100% satisfied, highly recommend this Company.
