My tour operator arranged for one day personalised tour of Dunedin as some other program was cancelled. And we loved every bit of time spent on the tour.

Alan was assigned to ferry us from Mt Cook to Dunedin, and he is the most pleasant, accommodating and attentive host one can ask. Alan took my 6 year old boy to see some dams & hydro electricity plants along the journey, the views were fascinating. He brought us to Bolder Beach and shared with us the history of how... More

We absolutely enjoyed our Dunedin City tour with Iconic Tours. Kim, our host, shared his knowledge of history and information about Dunedin and we learned so much about this beautiful city. This tour is well worth doing.

Ann met us at the cruise port and took the 8 of us in a very comfortable van to a variety of sites in and around Dunedin. We went to the steepest street in the Southern Hemisphere and my husband was the only one who attempted it. We visited a botantical garden and saw some rare birds. We visited the... More

This was a 5 star tour mainly because our Tour Guide, Ann, made it so. She was very accommodating and made our day very pleasant. She even provided a home made cheese plate for our snack on the train ride. Dunedin is a very special place and Ann made us really appreciate all that Dunedin has to offer. I highly... More

Kim was a terrific guide for our tour around Dunedin and the surrounding areas. He ensured we had bookings for the best time to see the yellow eyed penguins (and we did see some!) and provided information about the area that only locals would know. Highly recommend Iconic Tours. Thanks again!

To have a chance to see nature just as it was millions of years ago. The more people that support the wildlife, the... More

We're in our 50s and 70s and really enjoyed Kim's company - it's a testament to his friendliness and professionalism that we... More
