Full-Day Dunedin Tour with Larnach Castle & Gardens, Speight's Brewery

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet a driver at your Port Chalmers (Dunedin) cruise ship for 9:30am departure, then travel into the city for an informative tour of Dunedin's key areas. Visit the University of Otago, the Dunedin Botanic Gardens, historic buildings, stately homes, and the world`s steepest street, with plenty of time to take pictures along the way. 

    The next stop is the 1871 Larnach Castle & Gardens, where you'll journey back in time with a guided tour through the scandalous, exciting, and tragic history of the imposing landmark. Find breathtaking views of the Otago Peninsula from the splendid gardens, and enjoy some free time to purchase lunch from the castle cafe. 

    See even more of Otago Peninsula scenery on the trip back to Dunedin, then arrive at the Speight’s Brewery for an interactive and informative guided tour through the historic working brewery, which has been producing Speight’s legendary ales on the same site since 1876. 

    This full-day Dunedin and Otago Peninsula tour concludes with drop-off at Port Chalmers at roughly 4pm.

    Thanks for the kind words. I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your day in Dunedin. Larnach Castle is a fascinating place - rich in history and a stunning place to explore! All their staff are enthusiastic too, which makes the guided tour all the worth while. And of course the Speights Brewery is great for anyone who enjoys tasting a selection of quality New Zealand beers. Your comment regarding the last boarding times is something we often get asked about as it worries some of our passengers. But as you said, practically every tour on the dock is full equipped at keeping tours within the cruise ships arrival/departure times and I have never heard of a tour group missing a final boarding. It's certainly something we take pride in as a private operator. And, not to mention, we are much cheaper than the cruise ship tours as well. Any way thanks again for the recommendation. We hope you get the opportunity to visit New Zealand sometime soon.
