Full description
Experience Dunedin and its surrounding coastline on this unique sightseeing tour! After disembarking from your cruise ship in Dunedin Port, you will be taken to Dunedin Railway Station to board your train and travel along the spectacular Taieri Gorge Railway.

Gaze up at the stunning landscape as you travel through the beautiful Taieri Gorge to Pukerangi. Along the way, you will venture over extraordinary iron viaducts and through tunnels carved by hand more than 100 years ago. During the round-trip there will be numerous stops and plenty of magnificent photo opportunities. An unforgettable experience, the Taieri Gorge Railway is truly one of the great train journeys of a bygone era.

After returning to Dunedin, you will board your coach again and set off on a full-commentary coach tour. Discover the  ‘dress circle’ of the homes of Dunedin's original wealthy settlers, climb up the world’s steepest street, and look out across the city from this breathtaking vantage point. Travel back via the university campus before visiting the peninsula for spectacular harbor, rural and ocean views.
