Meet your guide at the Private Tours meeting point inside the port a short walk from the gangway and then we will begin our small and intimate tour through one of the most historic city's of New Zealand.

Departing Port Chalmers, we follow the harbourside road into the city for our first stop at the iconic Railway Station. Time to look around this architectural gem of a building and perhaps watch the Taieri Gorge train depart on one of the world's most famous train trips.

Then its just a short drive to New Zealand's oldest university, Otago, where in term time the area will be busy with students as they make their way to lectures. Our next stop is The Octagon which is the heart of Dunedin and here we have time for photos and a quick coffee stop if you wish.

Leaving the city centre, we now head out to the Otago Peninsula, taking the High Road we will have stunning views over the Dunedin Harbour and city far below. You can leave our group here to visit New Zealand's only castle, Larnach Castle, where you can take tours of the castle and grounds and enjoy lunch at the Ballroom cafe.

If you are staying on board then our drive continues to the very tip of the Peninsula at Tairoa Head, location for the Royal Albatross Visitor Centre, where you can learn about these amazing birds and perhaps see them circling overhead on the air currents.

We stop for lunch [your cost] at a small harbour side settlement where you can either try the local pub or one of the cafes. Following lunch we return to Dunedin along the harbour road as it winds its way around the many bays, keeping an eye out for the wildlife that is common in this area.

Reaching the city, this is where you can add visits to Olveston House [a time warp of grand 1800's living] or Cadbury World for a chocoholics delight [both tours last 60 minutes]. If these options are declined we will continue to our last stop of the day, Baldwin Street, reputedly the world's steepest, feeling fit? see how far up you can walk!

Please note that the order of the tour may vary depending on the weather conditions, ships arrival times and traffic issues.
